Kostas is definitely a family style place. The extensive menu assures that your entire family will find something to enjoy. The wait staff we've encountered have been unfailingly pleasant, helpful, attentive and efficient. The place was pretty full at 2 p.m. so, I think it's safe to say the place is popular with the locals. I've tried gyros, Philly chicken/cheese... More

This was my second visit to this restaurant. Not fancy food but good food selection. This place is always busy. It has a casual atmosphere and very decent food. The portions are large. The food was fresh and flavorful. First visit I had a tuna melt. The second time I had a salad. Both were good.

We had a party of 13, called ahead for 6:30 and arrived 15 minutes early. They were already set up for us and we had no wait at all even tho they were busy. Our server, Katie, was the BEST!

Highly recommend this gem in Dillsboro/Sylva area. Salads were crisp, authentic and tasty. Pastisio was excellent. Wine could be upgraded to match the good food. Sat outside in May!

I had the grilled chicken with side Greek salad. The sauces are amazing, chicken perfectly cooked. My mom had the large Greek salad, said it was delicious. Waitress was a sweetheart, her name was Julie! Stop at this place, it does not disappoint!
