We had lunch at Greek on Cary while shopping in the area. This family run restaurant is definitely worth a visit. The service is great, and there is plenty of passion for the food and the establishment. The value is excellent.

Let's first start with that I ordered delivery. Wait time was as expected so that wasn't a problem as I knew food wouldn't arrive until about 7:45pm. I ordered the chicken souvlaki platter. First, the positives...it had good flavor including the chicken & pita pieces. Unfortunately that's where the positives stop. Onto the less than acceptable...the chicken while having good... More

I'm so sorry to hear about the onions and green peppers, Kristen. Regardless of whether you dine-in with us or order for delivery, you should always expect my team to accurately make orders. I'm disappointed that wasn't the case for yours, and I know my team would have immediately made you a new chicken souvlaki platter if you brought it... More

Stop #2 of looking for the Best Gyro in Richmond. The banner out front says that they have the best Gyro in Richmond. I had their signature lamb gyro and their fries. The Gyro was excellent, and I really liked the seasoning on their fries. It was so much better than the 1st restaurant on my look for the best... More

We had the lamb gyros and mousakka - loved it. I would have been happy eating the side dishes alone ( green beans and rice pilaf). Great value for money, great service!

Walking by in Carytown area looking for lunch, saw the tripadvisor award sign. Not disappointed! Great food with great service by Nic, apparently "One of the Family" helping out. Had the Philly "Lambburger." Also give the Greek lemonade! a go! ...Oh yes definitely coming back!

Well, I ended up in Richmond again! This time I took what is left of my family for the trip to visit my older son who leaves there. Our family and my son’s roommates went out for lunch, and after several failed attempts to find a restaurant that had the availability for six commensals at that time of the day,... More

I appreciate this eloquent review you wrote for us, Rodrigo. While it's apparent our offering didn't exactly meet your palate's taste, it's nice that overall your party overall enjoyed things. And there should never be concern to encounter Montezuma's Revenge here -- after all, we're a Greek restaurant. Until next time, Alex K. - Owner More

We've been here twice now, both times were great. They have "real" gyros, not just preformed meat on a stake. The lamb gyro was absolutely amazing. I have also had lamb souvlaki, which was cooked just right and very tender. The bird's nest baklava was very tasty. We plan to come back a couple times a month.

Hey, our gyros are as real as they can get! But in all seriousness, I really do appreciate your praise for our lamb gyro and souvlaki. I look forward to welcoming you back -- we'll be sure to have plenty of baklava just for you. All the best, Alex K. - Owner More
