I stopped by here with a colleague of mine for lunch. As we walked through the doors, our eyes began to admire all the murals of Greece, the "Parthenon" at the entry, and the celestial cherubs painted on the ceiling. We were seated to a table decorated in white & blue linens. We both opted for the Gyro lunch special.... More

We have been eating here since opening day. The original owner/chef prepared excellent meals. Since then, a new owner/chef has taken over. The quality and consistency of the food has been very different. We recently invited guests, making a reservation. When we arrived a foursome was seated at the table we has been promised and being given menus. We arrived... More

Definitely the best Greek food in the Tucson area. Excellent home made hummus and tazekki, feta to die for ... Beautiful fresh ingredients. Some surprise touches like adding cinnamon to the baklava, terrific flavor hit, not just sweet. Very friendly and helpful staff. A must go to place for us.

If you don't mind driving a little north of Tucson to Catalina (not very far at all) you're in for a Greek food delight. This small restaurant has such ambience you'll fall in love with it as soon as you enter.... and the food, well, it's some of the very best Greek food you'll get within miles of Tucson. Everything...

This place is a trek from Tucson. That said, the food is very good and I have eaten there on four occasions in the past year, all for dinner. The octopus is wonderful. As is the spinach spanakopita. The staff and owner, Jimmy, are very accommodating and friendly. The prices are in line with the quality and serving sizes. The... More

We all had gyros and they were very filling and delicious. The tzatziki and pita was a great side dish as well. Great place to eat on the way back to Tucson from Biosphere 2.

Yes, this is real Greek food but it's far from the best I've had. The calamari was excellent but our main dishes off. The lamb shanks had little flavor. The restaurant is in a shopping center and inside it is kind of basic. The servers were friendly and attentive. A mixed bag but we were hoping for better.

I just love chicken kabobs and the ones at It's Greek to Me are ALWAYS delicious. Tender chicken breasts grilled to perfection. The rice and pita bread complement the entree just fine. We're not wine drinkers but the iced tea and lemonade were great!! We'll go again soon because we know it will always be the same.

My husband and I stopped here after a hike in Oracle State Park. I was afraid after a 5 mile hike that we were not dressed for lunch. But our server (do not know her name but she was Amazing! Adorable! Spot on!) We got there and apparently they had been slammed (a good sign on a Saturday afternoon). But... More

As a couple we enjoy dinner at It's Greek to Me for the lovely ambiance, the terrific fresh food prepared with individual dietary considerations, the weekend specials and the friendly, efficient staff. This is a jewel of a restaurant where everyone is considered family. It is always a great experience.
