This Greek restaurant isn’t located in Greek Town, but it is some of the best simple Greek food in the city. Owned by a Greek family, the Lincoln Park restaurant is a local favorite adorned in classical Greek decor with pictures from Athens and the Greek islands decorating the walls. The menu isn’t extensive, but the Lincoln Park restaurant hits all the Greek staples perfectly and at incredibly low prices. The gyro meat is perfectly seasoned and the fresh pita bread is a nice touch. You can’t go wrong with this gyro.
Big slabs of feta accompany their Greek salad and their Greek fries give a delicious spin on traditional french fries and shouldn’t be missed. They even have pretty great burgers. Take out is fast and popular as well. They have a nice seating area outside in the warmer months that is always full.
