I go to this restaurant every time I visit Rochester. Their food is good, and we always enjoy it. The restaurant has a good location, and we always go there for lunch after a busy morning in town.

Duh, Greek food prepared and served by Mexicans. Pastichio made with a slice of orange cheese on top, not becamel, and ground beef which was seasoned like an enchilada filling. No big deal, since his competitors either don't serve it, or make it even worse. Excellent Saganaki flamed cheese. So-so lemon egg soup. Uninspiring dips, including bland humus (seemingly cheap...

Hard to find good Greek food in rural Minnesota, but Rochester has a nice spot in Opa Opa. Good service and menu. The gyros brought us in, but the other things on the menu were just as good. Priced from "local burger joint" to "open the wallet" depending on what you order. But generally, not bad for the value.

I went on a Saturday night with two of my girlfriends. We have not had Greek food before so I am no expert on how the food should taste. We started with the grape leaves, Opa flaming cheese, and some olives. We then ventured to different gyro entrees. The service here was excellent and we were very full when we... More

They make the food after it is ordered, which takes time. They have some problems on the service side. One lady showed as the table and brought water, another took the order and the first one translated it to the cook (in Greek language, probably). They never offered other drinks (ok for us). They were replaced with an overfrendly Latino... More

I was in Rochester for the weekend, and happened to be pretty close to this Greek restaurant, so given the positive reviews I thought I would check it out. As many others indicated, it is a simple non descript building, but the food was excellent so it is well worth the visit. I had their Greek salad with steak cubes,... More
