This place has great food and is one of our favorite take out restaurants though one can eat on site. I love the Plaka salad. Fast, friendly service. Call ahead for takeout. Friday nights are crowded.

The Plaka is nothing fancy, just a good place for a quick lunch/dinner or take out. The gyros and souvlaki are excellent and the french fries are a stand out item on the menu. Try the Bifteki for fun.

Order at the counter and they bring the food to your table. The table seating is compact -- you won't want this to be an intimate meal, pretty close seating, but save that for another place. They keep the place clean and nicely arranged.

It is near the corner of Maple Ave (Rt. 123) and Lawyers Road, in a little strip mall near a Papa John's and an Vacuum cleaner store. Look for a Benjamin Moore paint store and you are there.

Excellent concept and delicious food. Kid friendly, authentic, good wine, and very tasty. Need more seating, but it is worth the wait.

Place seems to get good reviews so hope my experience wasn't par for the course. I live gyros or any other sandwich made from slicing meat off a rotating hunk of chicken or lamb or beef (and even pork at times).

However, my sandwich wasn't very good. I didnt even finish it. The pork was bland. It was also too fatty. The lamb is your typical ground to smithereens chunk of process meat. Definitely not individually stacked but not too many restaurants have that around here.

I hope the rest of the menu items are better. Parking is terrible but this is NoVa so what can you do.

I've been to the real Plaka in Athens many times and I can tell you this Greek food is autentic.
The service is prompt and friendly. A bit crowded at lunch time as this is a small restaurant and the tables are closs together.
