Great Greek food...a must if you're in Evanston

A local restaurant with some really outstanding Greek food. Very pleasant inside with so nice servers. Try the gyros, souvlaki, a wonderful very generous Greek salad(with lots of feta) and the very best Greek fries you've ever had. Chunky fries covered in a sauce of white wine, lemon and herbs.

Great budget restaurant because we can share a meal. It has been a favorite for years for good Greek food and quick casual dining. Our favorites are the Wet Greek fries and egg lemon soup.

Greek chicken, egg lemon soup, skirt steak, gyros, salads, burgers, and, of course, fries and all consistently great. And it's in my neighborhood.

Been coming since they opened. Late owners daughter runs it just like Dad did. Best Greek chicken anywhere. Great fries bathing in oregano lemony goodness. Good villager salad, gyros, burgers, and nice steak sandwich. A few beers available, limited wine choice. Casual , friendly service. Remember to bring cash. Highly recommended!!!!

A true gem in Evanston. They have THE BEST Greek fries hands down, with a taste of lemon in them, along with the Greek spices. Their salads, especially the Greek salad, are perfectly made, come with several nice sized pieces of feta cheese, and have a great oil and vinegar dressing as well. The restaurant is family run, and would... More

What a great find! Excellent skirt steak, awesome gyros platter. The prices aren't bad, either, although we didn't realize it was cash-only until we waked in. As someone who rarely carries more that $10 cash, it limits my spur-of-the-moment visits.

I have been eating at Cross-Rhodes for decades and continue to enjoy the food! Greek-style spin on many of the dishes. Also good for quick carry-out orders.

When I lived in Rogers Park many years ago, I used to eat here. Unfortunately Jeff the owner passed away, but his family continues on in his tradition Located just off Main St and a very short walk from the train, this was a nice dinner stop. The tasty BBQ chicken was both tender and moist. Loved the Maria fries... More
