The food here is pretty good, but it's not a place I'd go out of my way to get to. The gyro plate has a good amount of meat, but mine was a little dry. The restaurant is pretty big and has plenty of space for bigger groups. You order at the counter when you walk in and they bring... More

There are only a few spots to get Greek food in Lubbock. I was hoping this would be another amazing spot but it is not my favorite. It seemed to take a really long time to order and get our food and it was lacking flavor. Also, the establishment wasn't very clean. Not sure if they had a rush and... More

This restaurant does not have great atmosphere, but the food tastes pretty good. Last time, our family just took it to-go. Waited about more than 25 minutes for 4 sandwiches and two appetizers to be prepared and bagged. It cost us over $38. The amount of food we got was a lot less than what we are used to getting...

Almost every time I travel to Lubbock, Texas or go through the Hub City, I try to eat at It's Greek to Me. All my family members always enjoy eating either the Gyro or the Gyro Platter. Also the rice is especially good. I'm sure other platters are as good as well. The only subpar thing I have tried is... More

This was an ok place for dinner, Prices are good but portions seem to be on the smaller side. I was disappointed with the Greek salad and the tsatziki was very watery. I have eaten a a lot of better Greek restaurants and this one has the promise of being better, just needs to step up its game. Spices were... More

We loved it, very authentic; a Mom & pops type of place. Price was good, food portion was just right and taste was excellent !

I tried this place a few years ago and thought I would try it again when I got a coupon. I ordered the gyro sandwich with fries. I watched the owner degrade one of his workers in front of me which was uncomfortable. They skimped on the gyro meat and barely had any fries in the container. It was a... More

With it being rated high for the Lubbock area, I thought I would give it a try. I would not go back, nor would I recommend it. The building is in a strip mall and not very appealing visually, especially with the game show blaring from the TV. But the most important part to me is the food and it... More

We've tried the other Greek restaurant in Lubbock and must say, we were not impressed. Their food wasn't terrible, but it was nothing compared to It's Greek To Me. It's Greek To Me always has delicious, moist beef/lamb for their gyros and they are more than accommodating with meal add-ons or changes to their standard dishes (i.e., no onions, add... More

The gyros were WONDERFUL - the best I've ever had. Loved the tzatziki, which tasted like it had a touch of horseradish in it - flavor explosion! And the baklava was outstanding! The only reason I didn't give 5-stars was there was a wait to pick up the order we called in. Fix that and you'll get a perfect score.
