Been there twice and enjoyed food both times. But...also had same waiter each time and felt very rushed. Waiter borders on rude, and serves food like it's a race to get us out of restaurant. Will return but have to find a way to slow this guy down!

We went to Papa Spiros with a Groupon not knowing what to expect. This is a great place for Greek food. The moussaka is excellent best ever. The owner Spiros was friendly and made sure we had a good time. George our waiter was great and makes a good martini.

Nice small Greek restaurant located at 728 Lake Street in Oak Park, IL. The service was great, the food was great, everything was great. We will definitely be coming back here again.

We choose this place because we found a Groupon and because Oak Park is between Brookfield zoo and our home. We were seated at a table near the front which was fine except for the freezing cold draft that occurred whenever the door was opened. The server was friendly and appeared before anyone had looked at the menus. He then... More

We went there on a weekday evening at 7 pm to have a Greek dinner. The menu was very extensive with Greek Specialties. My wife & I opted for 3.Elliniki Greek Salata Small, 9.Arni Psito Slices of Roasted Leg of Lamb Served with Rice, and a Chocolate cake for desert. The salad iceberg/romaine, olives onions, cucumbers & tomatoes. The lamb... More

Waiter was trying to take our drink order before we had barely sat down and taken off our coats. Returned several times seemed like he was just trying to hurry things along. Food was good but not outstanding. We used a Groupon and waiter was very rude about it saying we should have let him know ahead of time. Then... More

Four of us went for lunch and no one thought the food was very good. Two chicken souvlaki sandwiches, a vegetable plate and the pasta with meat sauce is what we ordered. We all had the same impression that the meals had been cooked in the microwave and weren't fresh at all. The lettuce on the side of my plate... More

Have tried this a few times because it is closer to home than Greektown, but it really isn't special in any way. Flavors are not really strong, meat sometimes over-cooked. The accompaniments offered for one dish were "potatoes and rice". Not "or" but "and". They did change the potatoes to peas on request. In general I think it is fair... More

I went here with my daughter last night. We got there just after 5:00 pm and were greeted at the door by staff, or maybe it was the owner. The service was some the best I ever had. We had the feta cheese and olives and meatball appetizers . For dinner we spit the gyro and had food left over.... More

Hadn't come across Papaspiros before. Looking for a spot to have dinner with our son and his lady. Trying to make reservations for a Saturday night can be a challenge; went through an early choice (booked, and now I'm glad it was). More or less stumbled on Papaspiros, saw the menu & and, "now that's interesting." Turned out our guests... More
