    At this cafe laid out like a tiny Greek village, the off-price wine list alone is worth a visit, and the bread dips are a great deal. Three hefty scoops come with a ton of grilled pita triangles. Read more

    Souvlaki GR has made a name for themselves with their expertly chargrilled meat cubes and homemade pita bread. Don't miss the bifteki and the Greek fries topped with feta and oregano. Read more

    This place was so cute and authentic- complete with a little Greek store, sign post and cobbled floor. Loved the hot veggie pita and hummus. Very quick and efficient service, decent prices.

    SGR bifteki souvlaki pita is outstanding. Order two or get a skewer on the side since the portions are not huge. Also, the salmon roe spread is among the best I’ve had.

    Cute sit down or to go - small but super tasty souvlaki, so get two if you're really hungry. You'll probably want it anyways by the time it takes them to bring you your food.

    Best thing here, besides the good and proper Greek food like souvlaki, tzatziki and zucchini balls, is the fact that the place is decorated to look like a small street alley in a Cyclades' island.

    It's a tight squeeze in here but lots of blue and white Greek energy. The food, wine and decor are thoughtfully chosen and make for a wonderful atmosphere that you'd find in Greece.

    You'll feel like you're in Greece once you step inside. The menu is mostly meats - I recommend the chicken and pork skewers. The pita they serve with any of the skewers is so good!

    One of the most unique places I've been to. It had a club vibe going but the atmosphere sort of gets to you after a bit. Get the pita wraps. And the tzatziki is glorious.

    Three hefty scoops for $15 (out of a choice of seven). kebabs in a pita sandwich, which comes stuffed with a brochette of your choice, tomato, purple onions, tzatziki, and french fries.

    Greek fries & Souvlaki (pork) & Pita with mezze! Went with my greek friends and we fully enjoyed the food & interior of this place :)

    Souvlaki GR just gets pork souvlaki right. When it's wrapped in soft, chewy pita with tomato chunks, red onion, and cooling tzatziki, it's just about perfect.

    Delicious Greek at a reasonable price and welcoming decor. Get a pita and split an order of fries with friends. Wash it down w a Greek beer or wine.

    Make sure to try to Greek fries! The meat plater for two is a great way to try a little of all the meats! The chicken and pork were my favorite though.

    If you are looking to do a big (and potentially rowdy) birthday dinner but without breaking the bank, this is the perfect spot.

    Get your Greek on! Stuff yourself with chicken and pork skewers and souvlakis. And the lamb chops, tender and done well. Don't ask for ketchup with your fries.

    A homey spot for Greek souvlaki done right. The pita is fluffy, the hummus is fresh, and the fries are topped with feta and oregano.

    Tasty Greek food. Maybe not as traditional as the interior design would lead you to believe but still nice and well priced.

    I loved the SGR Souvlaki Pita with chicken. Perfect amount of everything. Also, get the fries with the feta cheese. They are AMAZING.
  • @HungryEditor B.
    Order at least 2 pitas for a meal or just 1 pita for a snack. If you're hungry, also grab an order of Greek fries w/ feta. The portion is big enough to share.

    Chicken souvlaki & pita basket: NOM! Kosta will show you a great time in the sounds of nostalgic Greek music. Try the Greek-American ouzo soda and treat yourself to Greek delicacies from the periptero

    They are adding shrimp to the menu on certain nights and it is possibly the best shrimp I've had in years. Greek salad is among the best in town.

    Get lamb chops and thank me later. Greek salad and spreads are pretty good as well. Try the fries with feta!

    The oven cooked feta cheese and classic gyro are great. The interior decoration makes you feel as if you're on a Greek island. Great place

    Affordable and really good! The Greek fries portion was huge and enough to share with multiple people! The bifteki was really tender! Enjoy!

    The dips are great, the pita that comes with it, even better. The pita wraps are delicious, but small, so get a side.

    Get the SGR souvlaki. Doesn’t matter if chicken or pork - both options are equally flavorful & tender.

    Fantastic moussaka and loukoumades! Tight space though, and chairs are hard to maneuver.

    Really authentic. The staff speaks too much Greek to each other which can lead to awkward situations when they don't think you speak it as well. :D

    I like this jurnt. It's a cool vibe, in that you might see some smokin' Mediterranean babes that rip cigs and eat feta cause they DGAF. Don't ask for ketchup, you'll look dumb.

    Great atmosphere, just like Athens. Perfect hummus and souvlaki! Be careful with tzatziki it has a ton of garlic.

    Try the pork souvlaki: herb-marinated pork butt seared over wood-charcoal embers and served in a fluffy grilled pita. It’s one of our #100best dishes and drinks of 2011. Read more
