Really nice unassuming Restaurant

It looks simple enough but the delicious chicken and fish dishes, plus the traditional Greek fare, make this one of our favorite family spots when visiting Dallas.

They make squid very tender, hard to do. Service and everything else is good or great. Deco is average.

I've been coming to Kostas for 20 years and still enjoy it each week! I like the way they prepare salmon with potatoes and okra. The staff is very attentive. I guess I'll keep coming another 20 years!

I recently moved to the area and did a search of nearby restaurants and this one came up. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but the minute you walk in you get a warm welcome from the staff. There was a nice ambience, decor and fun music that made me bop. The waitress was super sweet and attentive.... More

An old east Dallas staple. This restaurant is located in an older stand alone building, but don't let that dissuade you from going. The food here is great and authentic, and the service is excellent. Also, Kostas is the owner and he sits at the back table everyday and helps seat people. On weekends, they will sometimes have live music.... More

Looking for a small, local place to eat with really, really good food? This is it. Wife had gyro plate with tender meat on a homemade pita. Red onion, tomato and tzatziki sauce for toppings.More than enough to bring home leftovers for tomorrow's lunch. We both got sides of delicious green beans and home cooked potatoes. I had the redfish... More

We've been going to Kostas for years and the food is consistently good. Most nights, Kostas, the owner, can be found sitting at the corner table reading his Greek newspaper. There are so many appetizers that we like on the menu that we seldom order entrees. The three things I enjoy most are the avgolemono soup, which is the best... More

Kostas has been in same location for 27 years. Wonder Greek wine list and authentic fare. Great service and extremely affordable! Looking forward to return soon.

Visited Dallas to work with clients last week. After a long day I needed a quiet place where I could be "waited on." Kosta's was the solution! Both the avgolemono soup and the gyros dinner were excellent. Service was attentive. I've taken folks here for business lunches, but it is also a good spot for a quiet dinner.

Back to Kosta's last week. I work at Stemmons and Inwood - only Kosta's and Jimmy's can induce me to drive 15 minutes for lunch. As usual, flawless. The egg and lemon soup and the spanakopita are still as good as they were on my first visit 10 years ago. My favorite lunch is green salad with sliced gyro. Dinner... More
