We really enjoyed the dinner combination special. It included soup and salad. The owner/manager is friendly and makes the somewhat old atmosphere much nicer by his personality.

I had the chicken kabob dinner and it was excellent. They also give a salad and soup with the meal, which was very cheap.

From the time we lived in the neighborhood until now, Alexi's has been a favorite stop for gyros and Greek beer for lunch. They have an extensive menu of Greek items sure to please everyone. George manages to make your stay fun and tasty.

The food was great. The prices reasonable. The owner provided good service. The falafel was tasty but a little hard to eat.

This place is so inexpensive, it's hard to believe because of the area of town where it is, which can be pricey. The man who I think is the owner and the cook, kicks butt. He never stops moving. And the service is fast. Good Greek food and lots of it.

I think this place is family owned and it has been here for a long time. We were there on a Tuesday night, and the place was packed. It is because you get a lot of food, good food, cheap! Dinner plates include soup, salad, entree, pita and tzaiki,(sp?) rice, and french fries. A lot of carbs, but you can... More

We were visiting San Diego, found the great area of Hillcrest, and chose this place for dinner. It was great with kids, very well priced, and great food! The hummus was wonderful, the gyros dinner had great flavor, and the chicken souvlaki was excellent. A great choice for casual dinner!

The food represents the typical greek american style, beginning with Hero sandwiched to authentic greek offerings one rarely finds stateside. Alex offers the best lunch deal in San Diego, with a burger or hero, fries and drink for 5.99! Worth a stop.

Greek fast food. Local hangout, liked by expatriates. The food was okay, but they have a hard time with specialty needs like gluten free, or no lettuce.
