Kostas offers nice portions, but we have not been wowed by any dish. For the value, we recommend other restaurants. Their food is mediocre.

Not my first review of this predictably excellent restaurant, but now impressed with their management skills. I believe the staff at Kostas had a interesting Saturday night. My group of 12 was leaving as a college team showed up. No Problem for them. Very accommodating! As for the food...Large menu, many choices, never a complaint. served hot and Quick. My... More

I've eaten at Kosta's for years now and I can honestly say I've never had a bad meal. I've tried everything from the succulent Gyros to specials and the food has always been consistently great. The service is always friendly and warm, even when they are busy. From Greek and Italian to classic dinner comfort food, Kosta's is a gem... More

Been to Kostas a few times since I live in the area. The food is descent but nothing to really brag about. My choice this trip was the Chicken Gyro. It was better than some other things I've gotten there. Most of the time it like getting a frozen dinner that is heated up. Was not pleased with the service... More

We had lunch here the other day with our three grandkids and our son. Kids had a cheeseburger and fries and a pizza we had a gyro and my wife Had lemon chicken soup. Everything was delicious. The next time in the area we will definitely stop by here to try another dish. The service was also great!

My intentions were to eat at my favorite bbq restaurant around the corner, but with a 30 minute wait and Kostas in walking distance I made a good decision. I went with the Gyro and beef platter. Unfortunately chicken was delivered, but quickly straightened out. The service was excellent and it will be a regular stop when traveling to Cherokee.

This is not just a Greek Restaurant. Has a wide variety on items on menu, to include kid friendly items. Food was good and portions more than ample. Service excellent and friendly. Based on amount of traffic we saw, it's extremely popular place to dine. Menu included items not normally seen on menus. Made choosing difficult. Most enjoyable visit.

Kostas was recommended to us on our first night in town, and we were definitely not disappointed! I had the fish platter, which is white fish covered with spinach, tomatoes,and feta cheese. The green beans with bacon were an amazing side dish ...just the way they should be made! Co-worker tried the spanakopita and stated it was the best she's... More

We enjoy eating at this authentic Greek restaurant. The food is always fresh and hot and delicious. The portions are huge and we have never had any room for the scrumptious looking desserts.
