My Big Fat Greek Restaurant is conveniently located on South Mill Ave in Tempe.A group of us at here last night. The service was friendly and attentive, the menu offered plenty of traditional Greek items plus a few I'd never seen before. Such as Greek and feta cheese flambeed at the table - outstandingly delicious! Each and every item ordered... More

Visited on a Thursday evening, and the place was surprisingly NOT busy, but with all the nearby dining choices I guess that isn't a surprise. Hostess and all the staff were very pleasant, and I thought the facilities were very clean. All three of us got salads, and none of us could finish them. Mine was the salmon and shrimp... More

I have eaten here a number of times, here on business every month. You can order light or size up to something more substantial. Hummus is good, tasting platters are good, calzone tasted great.

Wife and I had lunch there a couple of times while at event on Mill Ave. Greek Salad and Lamb dishes are fantastic, healthy and quick to the table. Start off with Tzatziki appetizer and you are set.

The restaurant was quiet but the server was superb. He was extremely helpful and knowledgable about the menu. The hummus trio hit the spot. Simple and delicious. The dolmades were good but they are not vegetarian. The presentation of the food was beautiful.

Great food if you are adventurous, which I am. The grape leaf sarma is excellent. I go here as often as I can, and is a must-do place.

We found some veggie options and so got in. Seating outside was great and on a small perch with a great view of the street. The food was not much to write home about. Seemed like 'frozen fresh' fare. Falafel was chewy on the outside and sticky on the inside and the Pita was soggy. Average fare that was heavy... More

I would call this place average. My gyros platter was good ($15), but you only get these tiny four pieces of pita (waitress asked if we wanted more pita but never mentioned the extra $1 per pita charge) it came with rice and veggies. For $10 my husband got the gyro pita which came on a bigger pita with more... More

My husband and I stopped here because it sounded delicious and had plenty of outdoor seating. It was a great choice! The portions were huge enough that we were full and even had leftovers to take with us. The staff was very nice and attentive. I would definitely come back here.
