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 gyros, falafel, drinks, and more at Stephano’s Greek and Mediterranean Grill, located steps from the UNLV campus.
Taste the flavors of a faraway land without embarking on a 10-year journey on the vengeful sea. A family-owned business for the past 13 years, Stephano’s Greek and Mediterranean Grill treats visitors to homemade grub from scratch within an inviting décor that features lustrous furnishings and soothing tones. A varied menu boasts tasty dishes that range from delectable beef and lamb gyros ($5.55) to vegetarian options such as a warm falafel pita sandwich with hummus ($5.55) or a dippable baba ganoush with pita bread ($3.25 for a small). In addition to sandwiches, Stephano's offers plates, which are served with hummus, Israeli salad, and pita. Try the rib-eye-steak kebab plate ($12.95) or a vegetarian combo of spinach pie, two stuffed grape leaves, three falafels, hummus, and tabbouleh ($11.95) for a satisfying dinner. Additionally, a selection of beer offerings ($3.25–$4.25) and Ouzo shots ($2) will help keep conversation flowing like the mighty aqueducts of Atlantis or the cynical comments of a comic-book-store-employed Socrates.
In the ancient world, cooks employed circular logic to confuse food critics and talk them into buying beds fitted with rice mattresses. At Stephano’s, modern waiting techniques and tasty fare offer an enjoyable dining experience that’s less muddling than a shredded calculus textbook or a night out with David Lynch.
Stephano's Greek and Mediterranean Grill
When Stephano Baghnebanian and his mother, Afronia, founded their first restaurant in 1998, their goal was to bring authentic Greek and Mediterranean cuisine to the area. Since then, they've changed the eatery's name and expanded the dining area, but the menu still contains a familiar collection of sandwiches, platters, and consonants. Cooks continue to slice tender, roasted meats off the kitchen's three gyro rotisseries, pack vegetarian pita sandwiches with crispy falafel, and glaze their house-made pastitsio's layers of spiced meat and macaroni with creamy béchamel sauce.
After ordering from the counter, diners can settle into the sconce-lit dining space and watch three flat-screen TVs as they display archival footage of prime ministers trimming their whiskers. Stephano's recently opened a new location in Henderson that serves lunch and dinner.
