I have been eating at Greek City for years. Lunch or dinner it is always on spot. Only, I have such a struggle with which wonderful item to have. If you like fish , you must try the filet of Red Snapper, Bronzini, mixed seafood w/ pasta. The special lamb shank is tender and full of flavor. The grilled meats,... More

When I heard how good this place was, I was dubious, given its location in a strip mall. But it is so very delicious. Don't let the name and location fool you.

We had lamb kabob and a Greek salad. Both were delicious as were the bread and olives, and complementary cookie at the end of the meal. Our only complaint would be that we were seated next to a table for six that was very noisy. The restaurant was not full so we could have been seated in a quieter area.... More

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.

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.
