Even with their sights set on eternal glory, the well-greaved Achaeans besieging Troy had to break for dinner. Today's Groupon brings bounteous Hellenic fare across the wine-dark sea and straight into your mouth, the skilled breaker of horses: for $10, you get $20 worth of Greek fare and drinks at The Fat Greek in Yucaipa.
The Fat Greek's mad culinary scientists dish out a menu stuffed with inventive hybrids of Greek, Mexican, and American fare. Enjoy a bevy of classic Greek dishes, including the traditional gyro sandwich wrapped in a warm pita ($6.35), the falafel salad ($7.95), and a smattering of Mediterranean dips ($6.75). Since Mexican food also embraces flat breads, tasty meats, and children's hearts, The Fat Greek splices the DNA of these culinary cultures with items such as the gyro burrito, brimming with feta cheese and tzatziki sauce ($4.99). The Fat Greek Burger also follows this avant-garde sensibility by grilling up a 1/4-pound patty and topping it with a heap of gyro meat and tzatziki sauce ($4.99), instantly qualifying it for a Pulitzer Prize in meaty nonfiction. While edifying palettes with worldly flavors, customers can keep their pita chutes properly lubricated with a selection of Greek wines and beers.
From its exterior to its cozy seating, The Fat Greek is coated in a fun-loving layer of bright blue and white paint, paying tribute to Greece’s flag, the Mediterranean Sea, and baklava-inventor Handy Smurf.
