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.

The brunch selection was limited, but tasty. Brunch is a new feature. We ordered the breakfast dish to go with the brunch selection and were appreciative of the added value. For $3 more, a breakfast entree and the brunch. Not bad. Tasty, Greek food. No surprises. Would go back when the next opportunity arises.

The food is on a par with Greektown in Chicago but in the Village of Oak Park near Frank Lloyd Wright and Hemmingway attractions. Easy access by the Green Line El with an easy 1 block walk from the Oak Park Ave. stop.

Wanted to try something new and saw this restaurant and they deliver. So ordered the saganaki, Greek fries with feta and the chicken souvlaki kebab. All of it was FANTASTIC. This place will be a regular stop for me. Man oh man was it tasty.

Food is great. Nice selection of Greek wine, Greek specialties and seafood. Try the vegetarian moussaka. Staff makes you feel like one of the family!

Excellent service, food arrived steaming hot. Greek roasted half-chicken excellent. Also ordered the flaming cheese dish - enough to share three ways. Filo spinach pie tasty. Lively atmosphere, tables close to one another, brightly lit dining room. On-site owner visited the table; very friendly. Walking distance from shops on Lake Street.

Nice to have Papaspiros back open again. Smaller and across the street from the old location, the food is s good as ever - excellent. No need to go down to Greektown, it's right hee on Lake Street! OPA!
