Ancient Greeks held moderation to be one of the most important values, leading them to take mid-Olympic-event naps and enjoy only half of their delicious meals at a time. Seize some savory sustenance without the risks of sneaking up on an athlete in slumber with today's deal: for $10, you get $25 worth of fresh Greek fare at The Greek Gyros and Pizza, located in the food court of the Historic Sweet Auburn Curb Market.
The Greek tempts perusing patrons with a full menu of healthy, time-tested tastes of the Balkan Peninsula. Starters such as plates of dolmades of rice and spice-stuffed grape leaves ($3.95), or spanakopita ($3.95) and hummus spread with cucumber and pita wedges (3.75) alert slumbering stomachs to coming main events. Specially prepared pizza—once thought of as the actual food of the gods because Zeus ordered in at least three nights a week—is available by the slice ($2.25+) or in 12" ($8.45+) or 16" ($11.95+) iterations, with tasty topping options including minced garlic, gyro meat, chicken, and sun-dried tomatoes (each added for an extra cost). The Greek’s gyros subtly combine lamb and beef, and customers can order them as tsatsiki-sauced pita wraps ($6.45) or open-faced gyro plates served with Greek potatoes ($7.95) and a side of political philosophy.
A well-placed anchovy or an authentic gyro can go a long way in settling domestic quarrels over the effectiveness of putting used cookware in a dishwasher versus shooting them skeet-style after dinner, but by getting you out of the house, today’s Groupon will keep kitchen cleanup from even entering your conscience. Stop by The Greek with friends for a tasty feast on classic dishes in a contemporary, bicker-banishing environment.
- Gianoulidis brings that family background and some of his mother’s recipes to his take on old school pan pizza and classic Greek dishes, such as stuffed grape leaves, spinach pie, pastitsio and moussaka. – Bob Townsend, Atlanta Journal-Constitution
- The Greek, which is basically a countertop food court stand in the middle of the Sweet Auburn Market, is no-frills, straight up, Greek fare. With selections such as Hummus, Stuffed grape leaves, pizza, gyros, and kabobs, the menu reads like almost every mom-and-pop Greek joint that you have been to. And I say that in a completely positive way. – Live To Feast
