    Putting garlic sauce on everything (not even real tzatziki) does not Greek Food make...The Greek salad was just a normal side salad. Disappointing

    Today, halal food reigns supreme in the world of New York street food, but just a few decades ago it was all gyros, souvlaki, and tztatziki. One of the holdovers from those days is Uncle Gussy's. Read more

    This legendary Greek spot seasons its food with only olive oil, salt, lemon and oregano, so it’s pretty healthy. (Unless you drink a vat of the tzatziki sauce, which we’re seriously tempted to do.) Read more

    The line is absurd, but if you're willing to wait it out the lamb is delish.

    There's a reason why there's a line. The flavorful Greek plates here rival many restaurants. Do not be tempted by the fries. They are addictive.

    Greek chicken salad is great. Skip dressing and just add some tzaziki and hot sauce.

    Lamb on Greek salad was yum. Maybe too much leafs in salad, not enough of the other veg advertised. But still delicious.

    Greek food truck with solid souvlaki, friendly service, and homemade Greek specials like pork chops and baklava. Lines can grow long; go early or late to skip the lunch rush.

    The chicken rice platter was very tasty. Smoky and tender pieces of chicken, grilled onions, tzatziki sauce, and hot sauce on rice and salad. Only thing negative is the rice is lacking a little...
