Evanston Greek diner with gyros and Greek salads; great for carryout. Cash only.
South Evanston is home to this long-standing, no-frills Greek diner that continues to draw local crowds. Service is usually quick, and carryout is also popular; choose from a brief menu that includes avgolemono (egg-lemon soup), Greek salads, gyros, burgers, and thick-cut fries. Sound bounces off the nude wood floors and tables, and with the large number of family customers it can get pretty noisy. Kids can order a grilled cheese sandwich on pita bread, a twist on the perennial favorite.
