Tired of the merriment on Mt. Olympus, Zeus, disguised as a mortal, descended to earth to walk among men. The pure chance that a visitor could turn out to be the great god formed the basis for a tenet that Ancient Greeks came to call _filoxenia_, or _love of strangers_. This concept of Greek hospitality remains a point of pride among modern Greeks, which helps explain why restaurant owners often go out of their way to treat customers like family. Combine that with the iconic chivalry of Texas's still-prominent cowboy culture, and Dallas's Greek food scene might just be the friendliest in the world.
