Don't be fooled by the location (located near a pizza and Burger place in a strip mall like shopping area). The food is authentic Greek cuisine served by with knowledgeable servers and a nice interior. If you want quality Greek food this is the place to go.

the restaurant was recommended by a colleague. I was fooled by the outdoor appearance but once inside it was a pleasant surprise. The service was excellent and the variety of greek food is wonderful I usually have the greek salad as it is so good

Do not be fooled by the exterior or the location. The inside of the restaurant is beautiful and the food is delicious. I've been here for lunch twice and I am sure dinner must be even better. I recommend the fried calimari and the feta with olives for appetizers. They have a wide variety of gyros, salads and skewers for... More

We stopped in to Greek City for a late lunch the other day. I was pleasantly surprised by the interior. It is much nicer than it looks from the outside and has a nice atmosphere. We started with grilled octopus but it was very chewy and without much flavor. The wedges of feta were very good.The souvlaki platters were OK... More

My husband and I love this place. Shrimp with orzo, any fish dish, and the lemon potatoes, yum! We go here at least three times a year.

Teddy & Jimmy are great hosts, the food is terrific and it's a great place for a couples' night out, with family and with friends. BYOB. Order the fresh fish, the orzo with shrimp is awesome on a cold night, and my kids gobble up the baby lamb chops and keftedes (meat balls). Bravo!

The place is deceiving from the outside and I probably never would have gone if not for a friend dragging me in years ago. Inside, the restaurant is very well appointed and well run. The service is always pleasant and the food always good. I've come many times since and this most recent one was as wonderful as always.

Stopped in here for lunch with coworkers while in town for a conference. The place is in a strip mall and has a small store front but the inside is newly remodeled, clean, and enchanting. The chicken souvlaki was delicious and not too heavy. It was served with potatoes. They also provide bread and oil to start and Greek butter... More

Such a deceiving restaurant from the outside. Busy restaurant inside, and slightly crowded. Melitzanosalata was great and not something I have had before. It was excellent! Bifteki Sparti was ...absolutely huge and amazing. Chicken souvlaki platter was very well cooked, and loaded with food. Walked out stuffed. This a a BYO place, and they take care of your wine like...
