Foursquare Tips

  • The best since my childhood and has never disappointed
  • Don't forget the flaming cheese!
  • Classic Greek Town restaurant still serves a solid menu of Greek comfort food, but it'll always be best known for flaming saganaki and yelling "opa!"
  • If nothing else, you must order the saganaki. Plus, I'm not much of wine drinker but the Roditas is my favorite, hands down.
  • Look for Elias (";)
  • I'm about to bust from mohitos, saganaki, soup, salad, braised lamb, salmon, uozo shot, baklava, coffee. Omg, amazing
  • Highly recommend the braised octopus appetizer.
  • Great greek food in Chicago. Kinda expensive but great.
  • One of the very best Greek and truly authentic cuisine !
  • Hey The Parthenon, you should join Freebie! Its pretty rad and the benefits are great for both you and me. Check it out!
  • On paper, the flaming saganaki is a crowd pleaser: pan-fried slabs of breaded kasseri cheese, lit tableside with brandy as fuel, then extinguished with lemon juice and consumed with bread.
  • The roast leg of lamb had good flavors but was on the tough side. Don't bother with their "vegetable du jour" - all were overcooked in a rather off-putting sauce
  • Really enjoyed the saganaki appetizer.
  • Check out The Parthenon as seen on Food Paradise
  • My most favorite Greek place in the entire world, you have to get flaming cheese and the braised lamb.
  • The waiters at this Greektown staple have lit so many plates of saganaki that their spirited cries of Opa! have dwindled to bored, tired whimpers.
  • They claim to have invented Saganaki, the flaming greek cheese that we all love, and if you want a show with your dinner, wait until one of their expert waiters lights up six platters at a time.
  • I like the way the food tastes.
  • The ancient Greeks did many activities nude, well apparently dining wasn't one of them as I can testify from personal experience.
  • The flaming cheese while standard among Greek restaurants (so I've heard) was pretty good. I would recommend trying it. Friendly staff along with a nice interior would make me return.
