“Huge portions, fresh ingredients, delicious Greek food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013 via mobile

We went here for lunch because of the great reviews on trip advisor. We were not disappointed. My husband ordered the Zorba platter (a mixed meat kabob with vegetables) and I had a gyro platter. Both were served over rice with Greek salad. Each entire was less then &15 and was three times the amount of food one person could eat. There where many more lunch appropriate choices on the menu. I highly recommend this casual restaurant.

“Awesome Greek food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

This place is simply delicious. The gyro platter is fantastic!

I have had a lot of the things on the menu and I have never been disappointed.

The gyro platter is my favorite. The gyro meat is sooo good, the feta is always good and the pita is fantastic. Then of course the salad dressing is delicious as well.

Great place for authentic, delicious Greek food in Gburg.

“Good Greek Family Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

Nothing fancy, simple furnishings in a small shopping center. This restaurant is family operated. As you enter you see a big grill with gyro meat cooking, chickens on the rotiseree and smell all kinds of wonderful food. Best pita bread ever. Have had salads, kabobs, platters, chicken, lamb, steak - each one better than the last. One suggestion-get the dressings on the side, they tend to be overly generous.

“Zagat food rating = 26! There's a reason!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

Dimitri's cooking is better than anything I've had in new York, Chicago, etc, even in Cyprus and Greece! The ambiance is bright and garish, so get it to go, or focus on the food! Whatever you have make sure you get a salad so you can try the excellent house dressing. My favorite is the grilled breast of chicken salad. I also like the orzo. And the tzatziki and humus are also very good. Deserts are not as impressive, so have more salad or sides!

“Great Greek Food, Casual Atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

Located in a strip mall in Montgomery Village, this place is not much to look at. Clean but non descript. But the food is great and plenty of it.

The gyro sandwich is huge and loaded with meat. Main dishes and sides are good. They have seafood specials that come with a greek salad and the Greek salad dressing is fabulous. Home made with a special house recipe, full of flavor, not too much vinegar and good olive oil.
They have a family picnic meal for carryout that includes a roasted chicken, huge greek salad and grilled pita for under $20.
The home made desserts are very good and reasonably priced.
This is not a fancy place. Just excellent food for eat in or carryout.
