Ate here during some business travel in the Dallas area. I was the only one in the restaurant and I have no idea why. The food was excellent and the service was top notch. It is a bit pricey but you get a lot of food for the price, more than I could eat and I'm a big guy. Anyway,... More

I last ate here 12 years ago and had forgotten this place. A co-worker suggested it so I agreed to go. They have a buffet at lunch which isn't very good. About the only thing that was decent was the gyro meat and it wasn't that good either. I guess there was a reason this had dropped off of my... More

So I am on business and got tired of steak and personally don't care about the budget. So I went to this place after I concluded the nearby Indian restaurant was not in business anymore. entering the place scared me, 4 persons in a place where 50 could fit...this can't be good. I took the Humus-tahini as starter with lentil... More

My friend and I found this place by chance, and thought we would give it a try. We were so happy we did! We decided to split a Gyros plate, which easily fed both of us. The salads were fresh and delightful, with just the right amount of dressing. I want to add I was happy the cukes and tomatoes... More

Thought I would give it another try as I LOVE greek food. How could it be worse than first try, right? haha, not. it was worse! I looked around at people who were eating and I wondered if they were paid actors! Yes its really that bad. AVOID. I will just have to find my greek fix somewhere else.

I've been here for lunch and had the buffet and it was quite good, although I think this particular type of cuisine loses a little something when it's not as fresh. I'd recommend going at dinner time and ordering from the menu. The moussaka and pastitsio is to die for! Great service, too.

Ordered Gyro sandwich with Greek side salad. Meat was not sliced but rather in chunks (that's how they serve it in Greece) The problem was that there was so much grease absorbed into the pita it couldn't hold the meat, what a mess. Greek salad was a bit too oily with a sour punch of lemon but I love lemon... More

I recently had a business meeting at the Veranda Greek Café in Irving, TX. I have had limited experience with Greek cuisine, so was looking forward to sampling something. The location is an easy in and out with adequate close-up parking. Service was very good. Décor, simple but clean and neat, cloth napkins, table cloths, wait staff in uniforms, etc.... More

So sorry for the late response. Thank you for coming and I am glad that you liked the moussaka, but I also want to assure you that the calamari is freshly prepared we do not use anything frozen or processed except for the gyro meet. We even by our meat from local farmers and mostly grass fed beef. Thank you... More

Even if you are not a vegetarian - order the veggie combo. Really nice and inexpensive selection of many tasty Greek dishes. So the waiter was speaking Spanish... Still - it is a decent Greek restaurant! Tasty food and fine decor.

This place has good, solid choices like Schwarmas, pitas, and Greek Lasagna (forget the name of the dish). Food is always good. They also have a buffet at lunch that looks good, but has mixed reviews with some of my colleagues.
