“Old world charm!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2013

Visiting family in Chicago, we were ready for lunch on Christmas Eve. Rodity's was the overwhelming choice. With all the warmth and charm of a family restaurant, wonderful wait staff and service. And the food, best Greek in Chicago! We ordered a table full of appetizers, served family style perfect for the six of us. Perfect Greek rose wine complemented the savory dishes. Caution, if you don't like garlic, you may be disappointed!!! No vampires here! Parking right across the street.

“Come very hungry”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2013

Friends took us to this restaurant which has free parking across street. Lots of older waitstaff running around making sure you have drinks and clearing table. Feel like you are eating at Uncle's house. Greek salad always loaded with nice stuff. I don't like burnt cheese thing too much bec it reminds me of my mistakes :). But braised lamb is relish, spaghetti very tasty. Someone tried sweetbread (pancreas I found out, yikes) not a fav of mine. but traditional stuff is very good.

The service is extremely good. The Greek food is the best in Chicago. This is the place to eat hands down.

“Fantastic Spanakopita and Baklava!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2013

While visiting my brother in Chicago, we had the pleaure of dining at Rodity's. We ordered Saganaki that was so good we ordered a second. The freshly baked bread was airy and soft on the inside with a sesame crusted crispy outside...delicious. For our entrees, we ordered spanakopita, gyros, and chicken kebobs. All were extremely tasty but the spanakopita was our favorite. We would give it a 12 out of 10! The baklava was divine. It had the perfect balance of nut filling with the right amount of golden honey. Yum! We will definitely return the next time we are in town. The service was second to none...very friendly and professional. The atmosphere was quaint and clean. The free valet parking across the street was an added bonus. Give it a try, we think you'll like it!!!!

“Ooopahh!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

Very good, extremely authentic, great service . Had combo plate which had 5 diff items & g/f had Gyros platter. Best gyros had in years, very lean & extremely flavorful. G/F was married to a Greek restaurant owner & has been in rest biz for 30 yrs....."best greek food shes had in the states" (next to hers) was her comment. Have been here a few times over the years, and in Chicago's Greek town, this place always delivers. Grilled octopus was a little bland this time....only negative on this day.
