Stopped by Salonikas for Lunch while visiting Pittsburgh. It is located half a block from the Renaissance Hotel and a couple of blocks from the PNC stadium. They have some great Gyros and Greek food. They environment is very relaxed, nothing fancy but great food.

We wandered into Salonikas - as my husband Fred - born and raised in Pittsburgh - was almost positive that this is where he had his first gyro - many years ago. There is a restaurant area to the back of the site - but we opted to order from the counter and eat at the bar. It proved to... More

This place is one of Pittsburgh's best. You can get authentic fresh traditional Greek food or opt for a quick gyro special (huge gyro, fries, and a drink.) There are daily specials and a bar with all-round reasonable prices and long hours. The service is friendly and lightning fast. No matter what you order, you can't go wrong. If I... More

I live in a NY city suburb, travel to Pittsburgh and have eaten at Salonikas a few times. I am Greek (Mom cooked Greek food) and eat at other Greek restaurants in NY. The food in Salonikas is better than what I get in NY. I love it. It's delicious and offers a lot of variety. I've tried many dishes... More

Stopped in for a quick snack and had a decent Gyro. Ask for the tzatziki sauce on the side. Although the sauce is good, it drenched the sandwich. Very quick service.

I love Salonika's! It's no frills Greek food at its finest. Within walking distance of several theatres in the Cultural District, it's a great place to grab a bite before a show. NOT fancy if that's what you're looking for. Love it.

If you're looking for fine dining, great atmosphere, & a place to linger, this is not it. However, if you want a quick bite at a budget price, this place is great. Wide selection of Greek dishes. I like the spanakopita, while my husband goes for the gyros, but it's all good. Friendly folks. Dining room & separate bar area... More
