Although Nupa has a humble-looking exterior, their food and service are first-rate. The server was very attentive, friendly, & prompt. Our food came out quickly and hot. Their falafel is excellent, & their pita bread is to die for. Definitely get the hummus & spicy feta but if you may want to ask them to hold the extra olive oil... More

We likely eat here 3 times a month. Everything I've ordered is delicious and the prices are extremely reasonable for the high quality food. You can't go wrong with their gyros or a floretta. Their Greek salad is also perfectly prepared and so satisfying. The staff is friendly and fast and the lunch specials include soda. I don't order fries... More

This is our most frequently visited restaurant in Rochester. Great food that is fast and reasonably priced (especially the lunch prices). The chicken pita and gyro pitas are amazing. I also love the avgolemono (lemon based chicken and rice soup), when I want something small. The sandwiches are okay, but the pitas are what they really excel at, oh and... More

In our first day in Rochester we found this eatery near our hotel. Afterwards considering the paucity of selections and good restaurants in town it was a lucky event shortcomings and all. The food is basic Greek with generous portions of meat in their Gyros whether traditional or of roasted chicken, but their dolmades had no meat just rice and... More

I had a chicken Gyro which was very good. The kebabs were also very good as well as the lemon chicken soup, has a name but I forget it at the moment. The restaurant has one big issues I saw the second time in, there are flies everywhere. It is not their fault I guess but buy some traps guys.... More

I really enjoy their Gyro salad and the complimentary cucumber water!! They have a nice Greek menu with sandwiches, soups and salads! You order at the counter and they bring out your food when ready.. or order to go!! Fresh tasting!

This one of our favorite spots in Rochester. We found it last year and always have it on our schedule when we visit Rochester. We have gyro lunch , which comes with Greek salad and fries. It was even better than we remembered. Not fancy but great food at reasonable prices. A must try.

Tried the falafel pita and the fries, they are really good. Chicken pita is alright. Not exactly a place for dinner nights but can't complain about the food we had so far.

For under $10 had an excellent Caprese Salad and a glass of Piatelli Malbec for only $5.00 (voted one of the 100 best wines of 2015). So fresh and flavorful. Service was fun and good. Dined at the Crossroads locale and it was clean.
