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.

After a few nights in this City my wife and I wanted some lighter food that did not come with melted cheese millions of calories, and the risk of a heart attack . We are both fans of Greek cuisine and while this place is obviously a chain, the simplicity of a Greek menu should mean they can't get too... More

This place was reasonably priced and the food was just OK. I would probably try another restaurant the next time I pass through Tempe.

I was in the area for a meeting and had a quick, yummy lunch less than a block from the hotel. It filled the spot for my Mediterranean fix. Solid food.

I will not ever eat here again or any other my big fat Greek eatery. Over priced menu with no parking. They charged us for a plate that one person did not like when he ordered another plate.
