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

You may ask why I made the comment of Greek food at it's worst? Well, I have to admit I love Greek and Mediterranean food having lived in the local for many year back in the 70's I can tell you how fantastic Greek food is. And believe me when it's done right, Greek food is out of this world.... More

My husband had the gyros platter and I had the baby lamb. If you like really lean meat, don't get the baby lamb. It was so tender and moist with just the right amount of seasoning. I love the gyros, but the lamb was something you can't get everywhere. I also had a martini, I'm not sure what kind, but... More

We were on the Wright plus tour on May 21, 2016. We took the trolley provided for the tour, and stopped in for a Greek lunch. We shared a large greek salad with a flavorful dressing. We also shared spanakopita. A generous slice was served with rice and a slice of a baked potato with the most wonderful tasting sauce.... More

Stopped by for carry out during lunch and I had a taste for Dolmathes. I wasn't sure if I would like these since no one could cook better than my mother. When I got home, it was just like home for me. Very flavorful and indeed authentic.
