Overpriced and Bad Service! 3/21/2011

I went to this restaurant and we were the only people there and the service was terrible. On top of that, the food was way overpriced. I would not recommend this restaurant. more

The best authentic Greek food in Austin 11/1/2009

This is the best place to get truly authentic Greek food in Austin. I went to Greece about a year and a half ago. When I came back, I was missing Greek food and someone told me about El Greco. I thought I was back in Greece! Wonderful food and nice people. Pros: Delicious Food, Nice staff Cons: Not facing Guadalup Street more

The worst Greek I've ever had 6/7/2009

It has to be pretty bad for me not to like greek... The chicken was especially foul. more

Without a doubt, the BEST home cooked authentic Greek food and all around dinning in Austin. 2/9/2009

Austin has great food, but without a doubt, El Greco is on the top of the list. Authentic Greek cuisine and atmosphere while the Owner/Chef is preparing your meal. It was nice to actually see the owner/chef preparing your actual meal and with such family tradition. A real family atmosphere and inviting, we are already planing to come back with friends. Of course, I had to try the souvlaki platter and it was terrific, my wife had the vegan eggplant and a meat lover like myself even enjoyed it. We did start off with the Hummus, Tabouli and Tamara (El Greco TRIO) appetizer, all I have to say is "Home Made". Between the appetizer and main course, we were stuffed, the portions are big but we made room for desert, we shared the Baklava and it was just perfect and again, "Home Made". After we arrived, it started to get busy, but the service was still top notch and Chef Jake and his family made sure everyone was satisfied. You can see they treat their staff well, as it got busy, they worked hard and supprisingly flawless. We are so excited to have found this place, can't wait to go back, compliments to Chef Jake. I also recommend trying the Greek beers to keep the entire experience authentic, we had Marathon. Pros: Food, food, authentic Greek cuisine, atmosphere, service and family run restaurant Cons: I'm too satisfied to list Cons more

Eat Greek Here 1/27/2009

Avoid Miltos and come around the corner to El Greco. The service is better and the food is better for a better price. They also have a nice patio and are really clean. more

Below average 12/28/2008

I grew up in Greece, and its been a struggle to find good Greek food in the US. I tried El Greco with my family, and was dissapointed. My wife is usually much more forgiving than I, and she also voted not to come again. But that in it self doesn't mean that the place is not worthy for stopping by for lunch, especially if you like the imitation Greek menu many places like this push around where they borrow dishes from eveyrwhere in the middle east. The reason we decided not to stop in again is because the place was too expensive for the quality and the experience. The bill came to almost double what we pay at your typical tex-mex joint. Pros: Not many mediterranean places in austin, so its good to see one Cons: below average food, way too expensive more

Best greek food in Central TX 12/26/2008

We visited the place after reading some reviews online. I am from Germany and spoild in regards to greek Gyros. Upon ordering at the counter I was a little disapointed to not see the rotissery running. However, the Gyros meat was cooked to order and perfectly spiced. The Saganaki (Fried Feta cheese) was delicious as was the humus. I have returned once since and was impressed again. If you like authentic flavored greek food, stop by El Greco and say no to pre-processes, ground suprise meat.... Pros: Excellent food Cons: None really more

Really good food...really bad service 10/13/2008

I went in on Saturday to grab 2 "quick" to-go gyros. 23 minutes later I FINALLY walked out of there (I checked my clock with the time on the receipt). I was so frustrated with how insanely long they took when the restaurant was not even near full that I found it extremely difficult to enjoy my overpriced gyros. I really like this place and it has great food - we've eaten there about a half a dozen times now - but for the cost, it's definitely not worth the hassle of adding in poor service. I was truly disappointed and most likely that was my last visit. But if you want great greek and don't really care that it takes forever to get your food...El Greco is definitely the place for you. Pros: Great food. Would be worth it if the service was better. Cons: Horrible service, pretty pricey. more

Dips to Die For! 10/1/2008

My husband and I love El Greco! We don't know if it's "authentic" Geek food, if that's what you're looking for. We do know the food is excellent (I get the Souvlaki Chicken plate with rice and potatoes, he gets the Gyro). What tops out the perfect entrees is an order of Feta Cheese Dip with warm pita bread- it's awesome! The owner is very hands on and seems to go out of his way to make customers happy. Being on campus, El Greco could be a bit less expensive, but we enjoy it so much it's worth the treat. Pros: Souvlaki! Cucumber Sauce! Feta Dip! Cons: A tad expensive for the location more

most authentic Greek Restaurant in Central Texas 9/8/2008

Fresh food prepared daily with an excellent and courteous staff. The owner is actually Greek...can't ask for more. Highly Recommend!! Pros: they cater more

Real Greek food by Real Greeks! 7/18/2008

I have been to Greece and this food is the real deal. They make everything by hand. Really nice flavors and a certain quality to the food. more

Very Expensive for what it is 6/26/2008

The food is very nice, high quality, but it is expensive. We felt that the portions were very small for the price. The meat (we had beef and chicken souvlaki) was good quality, but a little too salty. The Greek salad was probably my favorite, very fresh and a nice dressing. The stuffed grape leaves were a little too oily and not as flavorful as the could have been. I think I would have enjoyed it more if the prices were a little more in line with casual dining. Pros: Good Food Cons: Too expensive more

Delicious, Affordable, Authentic Greek Food 3/3/2008

I've been to El Greco several times now and the food has always been outstanding ! The eggplant and garlic dip is delicious, the pita bread is fluffy and warm, the chicken soup is delicious and light with a lemon kick, the vegetable sandwich is made on fresh baked bread loaded up with roasted vegetables and a hearty tomato sauce. But I have to say that my hands down favorite is the chicken gyro sandwitch - I've had it three times now and it's absolutely delicious ! I hope the rest of Austin discovers this new gem and they can stay in business, because this newly opened Greek restaurant is awesome ! more

An expansive menu built around Konstantinidis family recipes includes the basics such as Greek salads, dips, pork and lamb dishes, dolmas and other treats. Finicky diners can opt for a cheeseburger or veggie sandwich but can still be convinced to try the homemade desserts. Baklava, custards and rice puddings are prepared fresh daily.
