I went to The Greek Village Grille in Lakewood, Ohio and found the following:
I got a vegetarian platter that included stuffed grape leaves, spanikopitas, some other filo dough with feta cheese inside, a small salad, yogurt sauce, hummus, artichoke dip overloaded with oil, and pita and some sort of oily bread pieces. I also got their version of "roasted potatoes" which were wedges, but also cooked in lots of oil. Aside from the oil issue, the food was not bad. There was plenty for me to take home for my husband...but I will have to drain the oil from the artichoke dip or else it will have to go in the garbage. My friend got grilled chicken on wooden scewers which she said was good. She also got the potatoes, but sent it back...didn't like them...so she got rice instead.
Now some issues....go to the toilet before coming to this place if you plan to eat in...the place has no public toilets. It is very small, next to a car wash....has very high tables and high chairs, maybe 5 or 6 of these....apparently, most of the food is "take-out". They do have moist towelettes to clean your hands if you eat in. Service was OK, but one of the workers must have had a cold or an allergy and kept sneezing into her arm, but didn't wash her hands. I didn't see this but my friend saw this and since we are both in the medical field....we hope we don't get sick.
Suggestion: If you are sick, stay home. If you have an allergy or whatever makes you sneeze or cough...wash your hands. You are handling food and making people sick who didn't see you sneeze or cough is not good for anyone. Since I know what has happened with the sneezing issue, I will nuke the food before eating it...the bugs of today are constantly mutating and hard to kill. As I write this review, I am OK....but still, hand washing or cleaning with a chemical is important as is wearing disposable gloves....I think the workers were wearing gloves when handling the food....I hope....
My friend and I expected this to be a nice sit-down restaurant....boy, were we mistaken.
Getting back to the particulars, the food is okay...the place is very small, no ambiance....it's OK for a "Greek" fast food restaurant. Would I go back? No. I live across town...if I want a Greek dinner where I can sit down and have a conversation with a friend or so....I will go to another Greek restaurant that has comfortable tables and toilets. If I lived in Lakewood and was in a hurry to go home to eat as "take-out"....I would consider stopping in...but I don't and won't be back. By the way....call me fussy....but I think foods that are Greek should be pronounced correctly. Gyro is not "jy-ro" A gyroscope is something you hold onto and go in circles. The correct pronounciation of the sandwich is " yee-roh". (Or....Mr. Hero...a hero sandwich....a derivation of "gyro"....). .
