Foursquare Tips

  • Get the waiter w/biceps for days and triceps that don't quit...Oh, and the gyro plate.
  • Saganaki was invented in Chicago's Greektown.
  • The stuffed chicken was excellent!! (Stuffed with cheese and spinach) im going back specifically for that dish!!
  • The newly designed patio area is wonderful. Now you can sit outside even when it's cool outside. Best fried calamari and spanakopita in Greektown.
  • The waiters might take their time in approaching your table but one glance at the patrons (usually all Greek) and you realize the wait is worth for the authenticity.
  • You must try the saganacki.
  • The pork loin chops are large, wonderfully presented, and delicious. The location is great for a business lunch downtown with free valet, excellent service, and wonderful presentation of entrees.
  • We went on a Saturday night when other places had a 1/2 hour wait. Saganaki was very thin and sitting in a puddle of oil. Chicken kabobs were lacking flavor but cooked perfect. Service was great.
  • Super cute restaurant with an outdoor area and garden. Service was very good.
  • Walked in,was told 15 minutes, 55 minutes later still no table. Have no idea what their food is like abs I will never come back to find out. Pegasus siren the street is seating me now
  • Share the combo platter and sit outdoors. Feel like you're on vacation.
  • Great greek restaurant! Tasty mousakas and delicious baklava
  • The salted goat cheese is amazing! And the patio is great.
  • The outdoor patio is heavenly!
  • Make sure to eat here on a weekday as the lunch menu is cheap but there is a good portion of food. Also, if you get there on a weekday, make sure to get the stuffed chicken with feta and spinach!
  • Beautiful new seating area and great service. Food still not as good as Greek islands.
  • Don't forget the dessert!
  • Gyros the best here. Moist and flavorful. I prefer the one here over Greek Island next door.
  • Lamb was amazing.
