“Best place for lunch in Frederick”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

Greek Aroma is at the end of a little strip mall off of Motter - you wouldn't even notice it unless you knew it was there. It's small inside, with the biggest tables seating 4 people, although we have moved tables together to accomodate more if we have to. My co-workers and I try to eat there once a week or once every two weeks. I always get the chicken soulvaki sandwich, which comes with their greek dressing. My co-workers get the same sandwich but substitute it with the tzatziki sauce instead. Their food is delicious and always prepared fresh. The workers there are extremely friendly - particularly Lindsay. They don't just greet you when you come in, but then make sure to wish you a good day when you're leaving too. I can't say enough good things about this place!

“Best Gyro”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

My husband and I both got the gyro platter. This place has great food at a very reasonable price and the portions are large. The rice is also excellent. I haven't tried anything else yet but plan on going back many time.

“Tripadvisor reviews misleading”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

Let me start by saying this is a nice little, take-out style restaurant, but you do not "dine" here, you "eat-out" with plastic plates, forks and knives. The staff were amazing, very friendly. The chicken souvlaki was tender, but the portion was small. The rest of the meal (rice, salad,pita) was just okay, esp. The salad which was mostly lettuce.Also there was no tzatziki. If you want a quick, fresh alternative to take out Its a great option. But it is a take-out / fast food style eatery so if you are looking for a nice sit-down dinner this is not the best option.

“Carry-out with sit-down quality”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

I had lunch here recently and have gotten carry-out in the past and on both occasions the food was very good. All was freshly prepared with quality ingredients. There are not many Greek dining options in Frederick and the others I have tried have so far been disappointing. I will stick with Greek Aroma for carryout or a quick lunch spot - all I can say is - tasty!

“Greek at its best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

If you enjoy Greek food then this is the place you need to try. They are located at the end of a strip mall and not on the beaten path. Not a upscale place just great food. There are only about 12 tables. We are repeat customers. The gyros are one of the best in the area. My favorite is the chicken soulvaki with the warm pita bread. Took my grandson 3 weeks ago for his first time, then the other day when we were deciding where to go for dinner he said "That Greek place." We werent in the area and I suggested a different "Greek", his answer was they aren't good, so guess where we went. Its worth a visit epecially if you have never had Greek food. If they have their chicken lemon soup and or the baklava dont leave without trying. Happy new adventure.
