If you want really good Greek food in Chicago, head to the Greek island Restaurant in Greek Town. It's west of the Loop and has valet parking. This is where Greeks go when they eat out. Delicious. Can be crowded at times, but they the wait is never too long.

We celebrated my daughter-in-law's birthday here after she suggested to go to this place in Chicago. Well, to say the least, we're all pleased with the food we all selected. I could have easily tried other menu in the selection but I ordered my usual familiar gyro and so did my wife. Besides, I haven't had one for a long... More

This restaurant makes you feel like you are in Greece. The food is good, the service is fine. There is convenient valet parking. It was a convenient lunch in Chicago with easy on/off the interstate as we drove through.

Excellent food and moderate prices. My waitstaff was so friendly that he kept my iced tea coming and told me it was his job to serve me since I tend to overeat at Greek restaurants. Its service like this that gives me a good feeling and memorable experience when I compare my experiences with Rodity's, Pegasus, and Santorini. Keep up... More

Let me start with the positives: - Not too busy for a Sunday - Hearty portions - Good value - Clean restrooms And now the negatives: - Distracted server (Left us for long periods of time and kept talking to the locals who come often) - A little dark - Large amounts of cinnamon and other "sweet" spices threw me...

They have a menu option where you can order two different dishes on on one plate. We had two appetizers, the gyro and the... More
