Pita pockets serve as terrific makeshift money holders, especially when your wallet is full of hummus. Make a delicious transaction with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of Greek fare and drinks at Souvlaki in Blacksburg.
Souvlaki entertains a menu of Mediterranean wraps and salads bitten with classic American flavors. Diners unravel the spanakopita ($4.25) cloaked in spinach and feta like the words of a hungry oracle. Comic-book-hero-approved super subs slathered in homemade greek dressing range from the vegetarian ($4.25 for 8") to the philly cheesesteak ($6 for 8"). For a more cuddly dish, the Souvlaki pita wrap ($4.25) embraces marinated pork, and the original greek salad snuggles with feta, greek olives, and pepperoncinis in greek dressing ($4.25). Patrons can also preside over the cultural marriage of a baked pita pizza witnessed by marinara and mozzarella and crashed by a horde of toppings. Post-meal, diners can savor a wedge of sweet, spiced baklava ($1.75) on Henderson Lawn or use it to barter with birds for the power of flight.
When you order a gyro at Souvlaki, don't pronounce the "g." The menu very pointedly prefers the European pronunciation of the dish, a pita stuffed with spiced meat, onions, and housemade cucumber sauce. Everything else has a pretty straightforward pronunciation, including chicken-salad wraps and philly cheese steaks. There's souvlaki too, of course—another traditional Greek dish of marinated pork tenderloin nestled into a pita. No matter what you order, as you eat you can watch TV, play an arcade game, or just admire the staffers' rock-band-themed T-shirts.
