“Stumbled on a good one! Olympic Flame”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2012

While staying near the airport in Phoenix, we decided to go to an Italian restaurant on E. Thomas Rd. nearby. It turned out to be a tiny pizza parlor in a strip mall, not what we had in mind, but as we walked back to the car, we passed this Greek restaurant that looked nice and decided to try it instead. What a great choice! We had lovely dolmathes for starters, then ordered various souvlakis and a "taste of Greece" plate which had a variety of Greek dishes. The tzaziki was delicious. But the best part was the service: the owner, who was born in Spain but lived in Brazil for years before coming to the US, was gracious and welcoming and we enjoyed chatting with her. They do a lot of catering in the area as well, not just Greek but Spanish and Brazilian. Reasonable prices, delicious food, friendly service: what more could a traveler want?!
