nother one of those great mom & pop restaurants that doesn't impress much from the outside, but is clean and bright inside, and more importantly, serves up some pretty good food. This one has been around since 1987, is 100% Greek owned, and just won (again) the High Point Enterprise readers award as best local lunch place for 2014 - I know, I know - some of these "best local" contests might lack a certain gravitas - but this one rings true.
The menu is varied, offering subs, pitas & wraps, wings, sandwiches, burgers, hot dogs, a few plates (marinated chicken, chicken tenders, gyro, souvlaki), pasta dishes, and a variety of salads.They have a daily special for $5.69, which generally includes a 10" sub and a 20 oz drink.
We tried several items, including a Hot Dog ($2.19), a Cheeseburger ($3.29), a 10" Italian Sub ($5.89), a Gyro on Pita ($5.99), and finally a small side of house made Chicken Salad (5 oz for $3.55). The Hot Dog was not one we'd reorder - the "chili" is more a meat sauce, with Greek spices, suitable for pasta, but not on a wiener.
The Chicken Salad was loaded with fresh tasting chicken, but is a bit sweet for my taste due to the sweet pickles in it. The Italian Sub was pretty good, but was a little light on the meat and cheese, and heavy on the tomato and mayo - that combination results in the tastes of the meat and cheese being rather muted.
The Cheeseburger is outstanding - well sized, full of flavor, and a great bargain at $3.29. This sandwich also was a little heavy on the tomato, but removing a slice is an easy answer. The Gyro is also simply excellent - a combination of seasoned beef and lamb, well cooked on a vertical pit, as the meat in a Gyro should be. The meat is sliced a little thicker than most you'll find, and this seems to keep the meat from drying out, and it is loaded with flavor. Again the removal of a slice or two of fresh tomato was an improvement.
The Philly Steak & Cheese, and the Marinated Chicken Sub or Plate are well thought of here - we'll try them on the next visit, 'cause we'll be back.
