Best Greek Salad ever

But it is called Athenian. It is so fresh and delicious. I always get it with the Gyro meat. Really excellent as is the flaming cheese for starters. This is truly the best Greek food in Omaha.

I found this restaurant while visiting Omaha due to asking some locals and checking with Trip Advisor. I've started going to Greek restaurants while on my school year long tour of schools across the country in my incarnation as a comic ventriloquist. I can usually eat healthier food there -- but slip sometimes on the the dessert. In this case,... More

The lamb is cooked to perfection and the greek salad is to die for. With good service and reasonable prices give it a try.

The restaurant is clean. Tasteful Greek décor. The staff was very attentive. I was in Greece this summer and the flavors here were the same. Good portions. The food was fresh and hot. We had appetizer, main and desert. All very good. I would highly recommend. It is good for families or a special night. There is plenty of parking.... More

Recently revisited the Greek Islands with my parents and son. Just like coming home, great service, welcoming atmosphere and delicious Greek food. Started with the flaming cheese, and part of our group enjoyed the Friday specials (Lamb Shanks and Rice and the Fish Plaki), the others enjoyed Souvlaki. The Athenian salad and the Greek Caesar were delicious and full of... More

Friendly place, some food was awesome (appetizer sampler), some was just OK... seemed to be lacking spice.

We've eaten there a few times. Pretty good Greek food. Their tzatziki is very good, just a bit salty.

It was hard to make a decision on what to order when my husband and I visited this restaurant for lunch this week. We ordered the saganaki (flaming cheese) ... really good. The quality of cheese they used for this dish is outstanding! We also ordered the creda feta ... oh my! I could have made a meal of it... More

Their pita bread is worth getting a couple of extra as it is warm, soft, and just tastes great. I order the gyro with 2 extra pitas, extra white sauce, and a small side of gyro meat. The meat is soft and melts in your mouth.The staff is friendly and there are enough tables to seat everyone when they are... More

Early dinner with my brother. Had the Tour of Greece for 4 (no fun without leftovers), the always great Gyro platter and the Thursday Special Lamb Stew which is simply fantastic! How such a simple dish can be so enticing amazes me. The food was all very good, with plenty for leftovers. Our server was pleasant and attentive. Still a... More
