This nook in the wall maybe missed as you meander past. It is a tiny stand up restaurant that has been a locals secret. The owner and his family create a little Greek experience in the Rocky mountains in Banff, Canada. Pictures line the walls of various homeland locations to transport you to Greece as you enjoy the lemon garlic sauce over the fries or lamb souvlaki.
A favourite treat after a soak in the Upper Hot springs.

We stopped in here for lunch on a Saturday in April right at 11am (they open at 11am). It's a pretty small place, not really much for seating, more just bar stool and bar type seating. Would be better for takeout. We did the bar stool thing as we had the place to ourselves. Barpa Bill himself took our order and while not the friendliest man of all time he took care to prepare the meal nicely. I got a Barpa Burger and maybe I'm just a sucker for tzatziki (TWO layers of it!) but it was easily one of the best burgers I've ever eaten. The beef was cooked great and was juicy, the bun was grilled yet soft, and the tzatziki was off the charts. My wife ordered a chicken souvlaki wrap and was equally giddy. The meals don't come with fries or salad so I ordered a side greek salad for an outlandish $7 and it while good it wasn't $7 good. The burger was definitely $9 good though. Haha, this meal was the meal that kept on giving as those garlic burps 2 hours later are pretty potent!

I had an amazing lunch here.I ordered a souvlaki which is similar to a gyro. The food is great. It is a small no frills place with good food.

Typical Greek "souvlatzidiko". I gave him 4 stars because he puts lettuce in his pita. Also offers burgers and stuff.

Finding decent food in Banff is hard enough. Finding cheap, fast and really good food is almost impossible. Almost till we were introduced to Barpa Bills. It is small, only counter space for maybe 10. It is lively, with great smells and Bill is a character and very nice. IT IS CASH ONLY. For 10 dollars or less you can get a great burger, shwarma, salad or calamari. I have had the lamb and chicken shwarma and the Calamari. All were terrific as was the greek salad and the spanakopita. Service is very fast. Its a great place after skiing for the whole family.
