My mom and I went here for lunch. Good prices. The tzatziki isn't real strong in flavor, but it isn't bad either. This was my first time going here at lunch, and it was the worst service I have had there. It wasn't too busy either.

I have been going here with my family a lot of times over the years and it is a great place for true Greek food and they are very reasonable prices with great food. If you are visiting San Antonio or live here in San San Antonio you got to check this place out.

There aren't many Greek restaurants in San Antonio, so I was happy to find this one. And finding it wasn't easy. It's sort of back in the south east corner of a Big Lots parking lot on the northbound 281 service road, just south of 1604. Service was fast and friendly, and the lunch specials are very good and reasonably... More

This is the third time I have been and have not been disappointed. My son loves it also, and he was never one to venture out of his comfort zone on food. He even tried the octopus tonight and he liked it. The service is always good.

We went here on a Friday evening, no crowd, so don't tell anyone. Started with drinks, the Greek wine was great. For a app. We had a wonderful and fresh tasting shrimp in a red sauce. No restaurant in SA can touch the taste of it. Also had some tzatziki and pita bread, good also. We then move on to... More

I've been a customer for many years. This is a place to go for family owned and operated authentic Greek food. Their homemade salad dressing is their masterpiece, it's delicious and healthy. They sell bottled versions for take home, I always have some in my fridge. The food is wonderful; except for the fries that I wished were hand cut... More

My family and I came for lunch on a Saturday. I got a lunch special which included a gyro, greek salad, and drink. All was tasty. I should have tried the special that includes the soup though. The restaurant wasn't too loud and a nice setting.
