This is clearly the better of the locations. The north Phoenix location resembles more of a sports bar than a Greek restaurant which is really a turnoff in my opinion. Food is great, huge portions, and even their desserts are delightful.

This place is mid priced and casual. They have the stuffed grape leaves that are great. the sauces are very good. I usually order the gyro which is very overstuffed with fresh lamb. They allow small dogs on the porch so we go there often.

Lamp chop is delicious, good service, and you don't have to wait for a long time. Enjoyed the live music.

Tasty gyro meat, 3 in our party ordered either gyro wrap or gyro platter. My spanakopita was very good, tasty, with flaky pastry (not soggy). Waiter was very attentive and kept our bottomless glasses of soda filled nonstop. Definitely will return to this restaurant.

I make a special trip here just for the greek salad. This particular location is much better than the others in the Phoenix area - don't know why. Service is rather slow but a nice location with outdoor seating. Prices are good. The bar used...More
