I stopped there for take-out lunch at the request of a friend. I'd never heard of the place. It's tucked away and the parking lot is in the back off Speedway, not visible from the road. Really glad to discovered it. Staff met me with warm hellos and polite counter service. Was thrilled to see they serve Greek beer and... More

We had driven by this cafe' many times without realizing it's there. It's in a strip of shops on the south side of Speedway between N. Anderson and N. Camino Miramonte (across from Loft Cinema). The parking lot is in the rear. The restaurant is very popular - we arrived just after 5:00pm and people were arriving by the car-load.... More

The food here is very good and filling. We ordered the Gyro Plate($10) which came with a salad, excellent fries, and a huge Gyro. They have just Gyro's($7) and other items. The service was excellent. You order your meal at the counter and they bring it to you. Nice restaurant inside and they 4 tables on a patio in back.

We tried the gryos and grilled chicken. Gyros was very good. Chicken was okay, not my favorite, I enjoyed the rice and salad more. Quick friendly service. Would go again.

Currently on a tour of all the Greek spots in Tucson. Fronimo's is the type of cafe where you go to the counter, place your order, pay, then find a seat and wait for them to bring your food. I prefer restaurants where I am seated and waited on. The food was average, but I found the Greek soup to... More

We tried a Late lunch; Early dinner at Fronimo's; enjoying traditional Avgolemono soup; Greek salad dressing; lamb shanks; and, sharing a bottle of the house red with my wife. We felt comfortable dropping in casual and pleased that ordering easy and service was prompt. The food was tasty and well prepared. We'll dine here again.

We had dinner here with friends and it was terrific!! The inside is clean and comfortable, but nothing outstanding to look at. However, the food is delicious. My husband is part Greek, so he knows authentic tastes in Greek food and this place has it.It also serves traditional American fare, but try the Greek food!!!

The Greek food here is authentic and absolutely delicious...I've been coming here numerous times throughout the years and can say that the taste, portion, and presentation has stayed the same...without a doubt the BEST Greek in Tucson... I recommend anyone looking for great food to try this place...

Let me preface this by saying that I have lived in Athens for six months, in Cyprus for ten years, and have visited Crete (the restaurant's owners are supposedly Cretan) five times for extensive periods in the past few years. I have also had excellent Greek food in Boston, Chicago, New York and even New Orleans, so I know it... More

We ate dinner here one evening while visiting Tucson. My daughter-in-law is from Greece, and we have visited there twice, so we have been exposed to Mediterranean food up close and personal. We feel that this is some of the best Mediterranean food we've had in the US. Don't go expecting a fancy place, very down to earth and casual.... More

Fronimo's specializes in offering food that is always Fresh, Authentic and Affordable. All menu items are prepared in-house using the same recipes that George's family used in Greece, as well as others cultivated throughout the years from close family friends. Consistency is of the utmost importance to us so that you always know you will have the same great meal this week that you had last week. Great customer service is another source of pride to us. Many of our employees have been part of the Fronimo's family for years and are always friendly, helpful and on a first name basis with many of our regulars.
