“OK local Greek, skip the spanokopita”
Reviewed 18 November 2011

Some of the dishes, notably the taramasalata and the chicken reganata were outstanding. The service was friendly and the restaurant is attractive. But my spanokopita was such a disappointment -- no flavor, wrong crust. A nice place if you're in the neighborhood, but I'll head for Santorini next time. (And I ordered spinach pie at Miller's Pub the next night to make up for the spanokopita).

“Very Good Greek”
Reviewed 13 November 2010

Being that I am Greek I find that some of the Greek restaurants food are lacking somthing. Not at Mythos!

Mythos has excellent food that is fresh and bursting with flavor. Owners and sisters Toni and Vicky make sure that you have a good time. The service is good, the atmosphere is pleasant and the place is BYOB.

I would try the pastichio, just like my mom made it. Unlike other places it is made fresh on the spot and served in a huge caserole.

It was ok for Greek. I'll probably go again, cause it's the best Greek near us. I had the shrimp, which was overcooked. Our friends had the pastichio, which they couldn't stop raving about...so if you eat beef, it's probably the thing to order on the menu.
