My sisters and I were hanging out in Richmond and decided to eat at Greek on Cary. The staff was super friendly and attentive (and attractive). Our food was delicious. We truly enjoyed our experience.

I love and search for the spinning spit of gyro meat. It was common in Chicago and New York twenty years ago but now it is rare. Most places that serve Gyro's get the pre sliced and packaged gyro meat. Not for me. I need the spinning spit. This is the only location in Richmond that has it and it's... More

I'm with you -- it's not a gyro unless the meat spins! Glad you could stop by and see what we're all about. All the best, Alex K. - Owner More

I've eaten here multiple times since my first (glowing) review, and it seems to change a little with each visit. When I see the fellow whom I recognize as the owner being there, the food is usually excellent, but there have been other times when the cooking, although using the same recipes, hasn't been quite as good. For example, fried... More

I have been eating in Greek diners since I was a kid. Some in Boston, some in New York and even a few as far away as Denver. Greek on Cary is where you want to be for the best gyros without booking a flight on Olympic. In a city that is desperate for good Greek cooking (yes, they combine... More

Greek on Cary offers more than sizable plates of delicious Greek food-so much so you'll probably eat an excessive amount. The lamb gyro is on point, and the falafel was good but lacked flavor. The restaurant offers an extravagant selection of sides including sweet potato tots and eggplant fries. The hummus is delicious with warm pita-definitely get it as an... More

I don't have much experience with Greek food but this restaurant left a very good impression. Their lamb gyros are delicious, as is the moussaka, which comes hot out of the oven. Compared to the gyro, which was succulent and top-notch, the souvlaki was slightly dry and less flavorful. The lemon chicken was also good but the sour was almost... More

They were out of pork and falafels. Cooked food took a long time to get our table. My fries were cool and some were not cooked. Chicken in the pita wrap had no real flavor. Had to flag down the waiter to get my drink refilled. This place use to have good food at affordable prices for Carytown. What happened?... More
