The gyros are huge and by far the largest portion of meat by all comparisons. Make sure to grab a fork and knife to finish the meal.

Meals tend to be inconsistent and sometimes bland. For example fries are made with no salt and pepper but are given to the customer after drying so long that you can not season them. Things are advertised for certain items that they do not have, ie menu item is shown and described as having white american cheese and they do not even have this cheese in their kitchen (they only carry yellow). I found that the employees are a hit or miss as well... some are nice, some are grumpy, and some seem like kids that are helping out from due to a call out.

A seafood combo platter for $14 with essentially shrimp & fish sticks is ridiculous. A revamp of your menu is in order because while the older crowd will keep coming others have a palate & won't spend money for food that is not good. Disgusting.

I ordered a gyro, and out was disgusting. The cook piled on the dressing that goes on top. It was horrible

From Our Editors

When Gerasimo “Jerry” Dimitratos and Dimitrious “Jimmy” Doris took over Famous Midtown Grill in 1998, they got to work giving the place a makeover. They installed the handful of neon signs that now light up the diner and updated the menu with all manner of Greek specialties, including Greek salads, a dozen wraps named for Greek gods, and the local favorite—the gyro. But the two knew where to stop, and the corner diner still retains its mid-century charm, complete with backlit menu boards, a counter that runs the length of the space, and the art deco “Midtown Grill” sign that sprawls along the side of the building.

On any given day, the Grill feeds more than 100 hungry lunch customers. Many of them sidle up to the counter for a trademark plate of gravy covered cheese fries, or the Hot Texas Weiner served with a homemade sauce created by the original owners in 1959. Classic American breakfast dishes are served all day, including 20 varieties of omelets and corned beef and hash, each served with a side of grits, home-fries, or freedom.
