Very good. Nice atmosphere and a pleasant staff. My wife and I eat here at least twice a month. I have never made it for breakfast but have been told they have a fantastic breakfast. If you are ever in the area I would highly recommend it.

Our HOA men's group, the Romeos (Retired Old Men Eating Out) meets at the Acropolis for breakfast and fun every Friday morning. We usually have about 35 in attendance and the menu has something for every taste and appetite. As a transplanted Yankee I first learned about liver mush here...now I'm hooked!

Good "diner food" and great service ! We've been there a few times with friends and family. Trip advisor won't let me finish this post in under 100 words but what else is there to say??

We ate dinner and the next day lunch in the Greek style diner. For dinner we began with a Greek chicken soup with lemony flavored broth, rice and carrot pieces. My wife had shrimp in a tomato sauce with Greek seasoning and I had chicken with spinach and feta cheese in a lemon flavored sauce. Both dishes served hot and... More

Our food was delicious! The fettuccine alfredo, cheesesteak, fried calamari, quesadilla, and potato skins were all great. The coffee Frappe was good too! Service was pretty average/lacking. Overall, definitely worth a visit and we'll be back!

I've only eaten lunch here a few times and have had Gyros each time. I can recommend them. The service was okay. This is a good, large, family restaurant that is always busy.

Excellent mix of American & Greek food. Buffalo chicken salads are to die for. I go here at least once a week & I've never had anything that wasn't good. You won't be disappointed.

This is a good place to take a family. Decent food. Inexpensive. Good service. Great breakfasts. I love their souvlaki and salads. Also good gyro sandwiches with sauce.

I arrived in Davidson for business Sunday night and forgot about the time difference only to find my choices limited at nine on a Sunday evening. I stopped by Acropolis because it was still open and I was pretty desperate. I was amazed at the quality of the food (even that close to closing). The server was very kind. Overall... More
