They tore down an historic building to build an addition on their restaurant. I will never visit Pano's again.

Ate here when I was in Buffalo, terrible overall experience at Panos. Service was poor, food was sub par and portion sizes were way too big. I do usually write reviews but this Panos place is honestly horrible

I eat here regularly for breaking, lunch and dinner. The place is popular and busy so often you have to wait for a table but it's worth the wait. The staff are attending without interfering. The food is very good and consistent. The only thing missing from this great Greek restaurant is Texas hot dogs with that famous wonderful sauce.

This place is ok. Nothing to really write home about, good size portions but prices compared to other restaurants is fairly high. Nice all round menu with Greek specialities. Staff were friendly enough but not the usual US charm. I would go elsewhere before here again.

The food here was pretty good. However, it was not Greek as I was hoping. There is a small section of Greek items, but the waitress was unable to explain what any of them were, and there were more American dishes then Greek. In fact, whenever we asked the waitress a question, we got the reply that she was only... More
