Great place for a lunch buffet, easy to get to

The lunch buffet is outstanding and reasonably priced with a wide selection of excellent offerings. The restaurant is in what was once the original waiting room at St. Paul's Union Depot hat has been renovated.

We had lunch at Christo's in Minneapolis. My son had the pastitso, I had salmon and my husband had gyros. The food was good, not exceptional, but the prices were very reasonable. The soup, a lemon egg soup, is very good, and the pita bread was warm and tasty. The salmon was baked in filo and had a very good... More

Christo's, well-known of course in MPLS, have a fabulous new St. Paul Location that captures the feeling of a Manhattan or European train station with the cavernous ceiling and roped in table area. Wonderful luncheon buffet, reasonably priced, with courteous attentive service.

A warm experience with great Greek cuisine in the old Saint Paul railroad lobby. Great heating makes this a fine winter location despite the large volume to be heated. Much fine detail has been preserved in the decor. Generous portions of Greek staples make this a good night out.

We came here for our anniversary dinner, as we had Greek at our wedding and love to indulge. We were staying nearby and came without reservations. It is an interesting set-up, feeling like you're in a bus station (because you are?), but the food was delicious, the prices were reasonable, and the portions were enormous!

I had to hang out in the train station for 5 hours on Saturday night. Business had just started. I was seated quickly and served just as fast. I got a sampler plate and everything was so good, tasty and unbelievable. Price point was very aggressive. I don't travel to Union Depot much, but if you're there, it is a... More

Great restaurant. In visiting Minneapolis for 4 days, we ate here 2x. SO good. Lunch specials are incredible. Make sure to have the milopita for dessert. Ooozy and crunchy and sensational.

The lunch buffet is great. The food and the selection on the buffet is really good. There is plenty of seating and it is great for couples, friends or coworkers. And the give you a piece of baklava at the end.

Exploring St. Paul's "Union Station" we came across a wonderful Greek Cypriot restaurant. We had some nice wine and shared a couple of appetisers which was ample food. Having lived in the Balkans, I was impressed with the quality of the research into getting good food.
