Walking by in Carytown area looking for lunch, saw the tripadvisor award sign. Not disappointed! Great food with great service by Nic, apparently "One of the Family" helping out. Had the Philly "Lambburger." Also give the Greek lemonade! a go! ...Oh yes definitely coming back!

Well, I ended up in Richmond again! This time I took what is left of my family for the trip to visit my older son who leaves there. Our family and my son’s roommates went out for lunch, and after several failed attempts to find a restaurant that had the availability for six commensals at that time of the day,... More

Alex K, Owner at Greek On Cary, responded to this review

I appreciate this eloquent review you wrote for us, Rodrigo. While it's apparent our offering didn't exactly meet your palate's taste, it's nice that overall your party overall enjoyed things. And there should never be concern to encounter Montezuma's Revenge here -- after all, we're a Greek restaurant. Until next time, Alex K. - Owner More

We've been here twice now, both times were great. They have "real" gyros, not just preformed meat on a stake. The lamb gyro was absolutely amazing. I have also had lamb souvlaki, which was cooked just right and very tender. The bird's nest baklava was very tasty. We plan to come back a couple times a month.

Hey, our gyros are as real as they can get! But in all seriousness, I really do appreciate your praise for our lamb gyro and souvlaki. I look forward to welcoming you back -- we'll be sure to have plenty of baklava just for you. All the best, Alex K. - Owner More

We lucked out and decided to try this for lunch on our last day in Richmond. The staff was extremely friendly and provided excellent service. The owner's brother served us and we really enjoyed the homey, family atmosphere and the gorgeous scenery of the Greece video playing in the background. The food was EXCELLENT and affordable. Generous portions, cooked hot... More

To be fair, I should be considered the lucky one! I'm glad my brother could make you feel so welcomed here -- it's great that everything from the beer to the chicken strips hit the spot. I hope we'll get to welcome you back next time you're in Richmond. All the best, Alex K. - Owner More

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'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
