Dine on the ambrosial foods of Olympus while wearing a T-shirt and jeans with today's Groupon to Mediterranean Grill. For $10, you'll get $25 worth of gyros, falafel, baklava, and more from any of three convenient locations in Midtown, Marietta, and Decatur. After you fall in love with the Greekly goodness, your Groupon will get you 15% off your next catering order, in case you want to outfit your tailgate to root for the Fightin' Falafels or fill your holiday table with Kefta-Kabobs (good until the Groupon expires).
Mediterranean Grill's versatile menu offers tantalizing, piquant options for vegetarians, meat-eaters, and lentil-loving litigators. Share an order of hummus or baba ganouj ($3.49–$4.99) with friends or start your fork off in a piece of spanakopita, a triangle of flaky phyllo packed with spinach, feta, ricotta, and herbs ($3.99). Get a healthy dose of wheat and veggies with a tabouli salad ($3.49–$4.99) or grab a Greek salad with lettuce, cucumbers, tomatoes, peppers, kalamata olives, feta, and vinaigrette ($5.29) for a light and flavorful lunch. Vegetarian red lentil soup with pita ($3.99) warms up winter bellies, and a gyros wrap, packed full of thinly-sliced meat in warm pita bread ($4.79) serves those in search of animal protein. Make any wrap a combo with a drink and Greek potatoes or Greek salad ($6.49).
For dinner, try the chicken kabob plate (with rice pilaf, pita, tzasiki sauce, and salad; $7.99), combination feast (with shish kabob, kufta kabob, gyros slices, rice pilaf, pita, tahini sauce, and salad; $8.99), or vegetarian plate (homemade hummus, baba ganouj, falafel, tobouli salad, pita, tahini, and optional hot sauce; $7.99). Afterward, satisfy your sweet tooth with a flaky, nutty piece of baklava ($1.50).
The Mayo Clinic joins other doctors and non-evil scientists in recommending a Mediterranean diet, rich in healthy fat from olive oil, to potentially decrease your risk for heart disease. Another key component of the Mediterranean diet is eating your meals with friends and family, so buy a few extra Groupons. The exposed brick walls, lively artwork, and funky blue pendant lights at Mediterranean Grill make for a vibrant atmosphere conducive to a fun lunch with friends, a family get-together, or a spirited debate with your fellow gods over the fate of that upstart Odysseus.
- The meats are cooked just right, and the salads are amazing. You don't sit there waiting for hours and hours, and the place is lively. I go there for lunch just about everyday, and honestly, I can't recommend a better place. – wbimport, Citysearch
- The food is too good to be at such a low price, you could eat here everyday and never get bored... the menu is great, with tons of selections and options when you want to mix it up. The service is quick, and the workers are very friendly. – foodcritic234, Citysearch
- Excellent hummus...sandwiches that are mouthwatering (have had the gyro [sic], falafel and kufta - the kufta has this cardamom/cinnamon flavor that adds a nice twist), and the flakiest most addcitive [sic] baklava in the city. – bwlove, Citysearch
Mediterranean Grill’s authentic kebabs, fresh hummus, and overflowing pitas have earned it not just one but six Best Middle Eastern awards from Creative Loafing—including those for 2012, 2010, and 2009—as well as a gushing news profile by CBS Atlanta. The eatery’s chefs earned these laudations by charbroiling tender cubes of sirloin and chicken, frying falafel patties to the perfect crisp, and layering phyllo dough with a blend of spinach, feta, and ricotta for spanakopita triangles that precisely illustrate the Pythagorean theorem. Guests can sit down to eat their wraps and kebab plates at intimate dining rooms or call ahead to place orders for pickup, delivery, or even catering.
