When PapaSpiros was profiled on ABC Chicago News segment The Hungry Hound, Spiro Papajuros — Papa Spiros himself — said, "we do use traditional dishes of the spanakopita, moussaka and the pasticchio and the dolmades, but... they're a little bit different than the ones in other restaurants." That's confirmed by the reporter, who said "Even the saganaki is unique: flamed in the kitchen, they use a different cheese than you'd find on Halsted."
The restaurant's site also shows off praise from the Chicago Sun-Times ("best Greek food outside of Athens") and the New York Times ("best Greek restaurant in Chicago"). If they don't get enough at the restaurant, Taverna fans can commission chefs to cater a private event by ordering pans of pilaf, roasted vegetables, and homemade sausage.
