“One of the best secrets in Vienna!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

We eat here at least three times a month - food is wonderful and the staff are always friendly. Seating can sometimes be tough but only becuase the food is so good. Reasonably priced for a informal fast food type place. The fries are addictive and the souvlaki and gyros are the best!

“Great for Takeout!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

This place has great food and is one of our favorite take out restaurants though one can eat on site. I love the Plaka salad. Fast, friendly service. Call ahead for takeout. Friday nights are crowded.

“Greek Food -- Fast -- in Vienna, VA”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

The Plaka is nothing fancy, just a good place for a quick lunch/dinner or take out. The gyros and souvlaki are excellent and the french fries are a stand out item on the menu. Try the Bifteki for fun.

Order at the counter and they bring the food to your table. The table seating is compact -- you won't want this to be an intimate meal, pretty close seating, but save that for another place. They keep the place clean and nicely arranged.

It is near the corner of Maple Ave (Rt. 123) and Lawyers Road, in a little strip mall near a Papa John's and an Vacuum cleaner store. Look for a Benjamin Moore paint store and you are there.

“Great Fast Casual Greek Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

Excellent concept and delicious food. Kid friendly, authentic, good wine, and very tasty. Need more seating, but it is worth the wait.

“Not too sure about a pork gyro (especially when it's fatty).”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012 via mobile

Place seems to get good reviews so hope my experience wasn't par for the course. I live gyros or any other sandwich made from slicing meat off a rotating hunk of chicken or lamb or beef (and even pork at times).

However, my sandwich wasn't very good. I didnt even finish it. The pork was bland. It was also too fatty. The lamb is your typical ground to smithereens chunk of process meat. Definitely not individually stacked but not too many restaurants have that around here.

I hope the rest of the menu items are better. Parking is terrible but this is NoVa so what can you do.
