We started with flaming cheese and nice wine . We opted for the refreshing Greek salad with salmon and he salmon shrimp salad . The warm pita bread was a tasty addition .

I was looking for a quick lunch during a day of conferences and found this restaurant amongst a street of many. The service was friendly. I have tacos which were amazing - shame I had a 'coffee' as I didn't realise it was going to be as strong as it was - my fault at not knowing what a 'greek'... More

Everything we ordered was cooked to our liking. No complaints about the food. After we ordered and received our waters we didn't see the server again until the food came. The water tasted awful. Terrible tap water. It could've taken less time for a basic lunch but I wouldn't go back because of the service or lack there of.

Had an outside dining lunch on Mill Ave. at The Big Fat Greek Restaurant just today. Our server Dusty recommended a luncheon special pita available with a Greek salad or seasoned fries. Our food arrived quickly and hot from the kitchen. This was a tasty lunch served amid the campus bustle of Arizona State University. Very reasonable ----a great find!

Stopped in here for lunch. The first thing I noticed was the smell of the wood fire. Loved it. I ordered the gyro pita which was excellent and packed with meat. I had the Greek salad with it and I also ordered the baklava, which is a must.

If you like to taste food from Greece, Cyprus, Turkey, Italy, even Middle Eastern this place is just for you because you can have Greek meze, Turkish baklava, Middle Eastern falafel! You will have healthy and delicious options. Besides the food, the location is good and the staff is really helpful.
