Just returned from a trip to Greece so I thought I would try the local Greed restaurant. The only good thing I could say about it was the Mythos beer I had. I ordered the chicken spanakopita. It was a hunk of deep fried phyllo...More

I am sorry you were not happy with your experience at The Apollo. Our chicken spanakopita (one of my favorite items on our menu) is several layers of filo dough, buttered, layered with 3 strips of marinated chicken, topped with feta dough, wrapped, brushed with...More

love everything I have had here. My favorite is the traditional gyro. They have great coffee, and you have to try their baklava. Love to come here with friends and family.

They specialize in gyros, and the food is very good. We enjoyed the lemon chicken soup and beef gyro, then went back another time for chicken gyro. They have Greek Sweet Bread, which we hadn't run into before, and it was interesting!

This family owned restaurant amazes me everytime I go in. Small, cozy, attractive. It is difficult to find a good Greek salad that compares after being in Greece but the Apollo comes close.. The bread and dolmanthes served with the salad are fresh and delicious....More

The food portions are large, taste is good, but not great. You definitely will not leave this place hungry. Service was wonderful but don't stop here if you are on a tight schedule, it is typical European service-relaxed with no rush. Still a great place...More

Great salad, but it came with dry pita bread on the side, nothing to dip it in as there was barely enough dressing for the salad. The mousaka was excellent!

I'm sorry to hear you were unhappy with your order. Our food is prepared exactly the same way whether it is a take out or dine in order. The only difference is one is placed in a box instead of served on a plate. Naturally...More

Stopped with my daughter one evening. Both of us got the lamb Gyro. Our server was quick, and attentive. Gyro's were terrific along with the tzatziki sauce and the fries were cooked perfectly. Even had some entertainment with the guys in the back singing. Always...More
