We went here for a quick lunch, and I ordered the spanakopita appetizer and a gyro, with baklava for dessert. I loved my meal, the spanakopita were great, the portions were good, not too big but not small. The baklava was fantastic. My husband ordered the chicken salad which came in a tortilla bowl (!) and he was disappointed with... More

A hole in the wall with the best Greek food around. Food quality is above all others in this area. Wish the restaurant itself was in a different location as it gets quite loud if crowed. But the food makes it worth it! We are regulars!

Akropolis seems to share a kitchen with the adjacent Mexican restaurant. It's a walk up to the counter place with very cheap prices. The large Greek salad was only $5 and the Super Euro close to $6. They bring the food to your table once you order. It was pretty empty when we went at 11:30 on a weekday. The... More

great salad and chicken and yogurt sauce, but they need more help cleaning the tables, they sit too long before being bused, food on floor and spills on floor not wiped up immediately. bathroom needs an OVERNEEDED overhaul!!!!

So not the best service. however the food was good, Not GREAT. however good, and at a nice resonable price. The cafe is small , about 12 tables, half seats only 2 people.... More

Very tasty Greek food and a good value for the money. Its a very small cafe with a nice atmosphere. You can eat on the inside and enjoy the view from a large table sitting directly in front of a huge window facing the store front or sit outside. My family really enjoys this little cafe.

It;s tucked away in a strip mall. My wife and I decided to stop and give it a try and were not disappointed. The service was good and attentive. The food was excellent.

We went at lunch time, very busy but well organised, place your order and pay and they deliver it to your table. Excellent home type cooked Greek food, tasty and fulfilling. They have different specials on every day, good value .

My mother and I eat at the Akropolis Cafe most every time we go to Gastonia. If you're looking for sophistication, this place is not for you. However, if you want good Greek food for a good price prepared by really nice people, then go to the Akropolis. It's been run by the same people for years. The service can... More
