“San Antonio gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013 via mobile

We went for dinner on the recommendation of a Greek friend. From the outside you will not be impressed. It is in a nondescript strip mall not in the best part of town ( just outside Lackland AFB on 90 access road). But don't be fooled! Once you are inside you immediately are received with the warm hospitality of a Greek home. The service was first rate. Out waiter brought out and opened several bottles of wine so we could try them before making our choice. He was warm and had a great sense of humor as well as the owner, Dimi, who sat down with us for a bit and chatted and made the evening feel very special. The food was amazing all around. We had 4 different appetizers, 5 entres, 3 deserts. Everything was absolutely delicious!! This restaurant is such a breath of fresh air and a nice change from the Mexican fare which is so common here. I hear it is also a great place for lunch. You will not be disappointed!

“Strip Mall Surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

Passing through San Antonio today and checked TA for a Greek restaurant. Once again, TA came through!
Mina & Dimi's is Very Good! Located in a strip mall, this small, friendly restaurant has some great Greek food.
We had the fried calamari as an appetizer.......good but forgettable.
I had the gyro, souvlaki combo plate. More than enough food. The gyro meat is very good, the beef kebab tender and tasty. Pitas are fresh.......tzatziki sauce very good. Also had the house Greek salad........very good.
My wife had the meze (appetizer) sampler as her entree. The dolmades are fantastic! The spanakopita and tyropita are both vey good. Fresh feta, pita, kalamata olives, fried okra and potato wedges rounded out the plate.
Service was terrific and friendly.
We would eat here again if in the area.

“How do I love thee, let me count the ways...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

Our first trip to Mina & Dimi's after hearing so much good for so long did not disappoint. The authentic homemade Greek dishes are amazing--nothing out of a can here--and the service is warm and personal. Love the old-world feel of the place. Yes, it's in a strip center, but that just kind of adds to its charm! Had many interactions with the owner, even down to personally lighting our Flaming Saganaki. We will be back many, many times to this hidden gem!

“Don't miss this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013 via mobile

Friends in Washington had told me that when I came to San Antonio on a business trip, I shouldn't miss Mina & Demi's. My friends were completely right! Waaaaay out of downtown near Lackland AFB in a rundown shopping center, it offers some of the best Greek food in the country. I started the meal with the Tzatziki with cucumber sauce meze. The main course was the classic Greek comfort food, moussaka - seasoned potatoes, eggplant, zucchini,seasoned ground beef topped with a bechamel sauce. Accompanied by a white Kouros wine - it was a totally wonderful, but unexpected meal that was very reasonably priced. Funky, fun and wonderful food.
