Just had a spectacular meal here with friends. It was my first time but not my last; I will definitely return. The menu is huge and varied so something for everyone. The grilled octopus over greens was magnificent as were the salads and calamari. Beer on tap was delicious, as was the fried cheese and hummus! Have to go back... More

Being life-long residents of the Philly area, we've been here a number of times. It's great when you're checking out South Street, to stop in for lunch. The dimly lit, cozy interior is welcoming. We've enjoyed whatever we've ordered, including meats, seafood, salads, sides and drinks. Prices are reasonable

Well we ordered the meal deal for 2 people. We each got one salad, one dessert, one entree, and we split the appetizer for 36 bucks. The portions were good sized and the food was delicious. I got the chicken kebab and it was amazing and the meat was so tender and tasty. My wife got a Greek Lasagna and... More

A small group of us stopped in to grab some dinner while visiting South Street. Honestly it smelled so good outside we couldn't help but stop and when we did we were ushered inside by a nice gentleman before we "changed our mind". The service was super quick and friendly and the food was some of the best Mediterranean food... More

South Street Souvlaki.. For some reason this decades old standard always gets passed over when Greek food gets discussed on the Main Line where I live. I guess we're as guilty as any Philadelphia expat in not having eaten there since moving to suburbia. My wife had a craving for Greek roasted potatoes today, and running through the list of... More

Not only is the food always delicious but they treat you like family...very welcoming and attentive from the moment you walk in. The bartender makes the BEST apple martini! They have the freshest, most delicious hummus and pita bread! In my mid 20's I dined or picked up take out a couple times a month but now in my 40's... More

This is pretty basic, but they have a chef who knows what they are doing. We had the lamb plate (I think?) which was really good, and the baba ganoush too.

Stopped in for lunch yesterday and got lamb gyros. They were really good. And quick, and inexpensive. I want to go back and try some other food on the menu!

Hands down the best Gyro on South Street. Never disappointed. Have not been able to find quality for the price anywhere else. I love these guys.
