I had to watch a girl in the back 6/2/2012

I had to watch a girl in the back eating her finger nails like I have never seen before! It was clear she had horrible hygene and we even watched her wipe her nose with her hands and continue making a shake! more

Most food is great but BEWARE of the pastrami burger. 4/2/2012

I always loved Yanni's. But then I decided to try the pastrami burger. It was possibly the most disgusting thing I had ever partially eaten. The jerky-like pastrami meat tasted like rotting carcass, & I'm NOT kidding. The Pastrami was more like stiff red beef jerky, making the whole burger fall to pieces, which was highly aggravating & frustrating (plus the burger patty was halfway off the bun). The consistency and look of the ""Pastrami"" literally looked like human meat. Having been through many biology classes I know what this looks like. This burger made me so sick that I started thinking that there may be some kinda Greek Mafia in Utah & that they dispose of there victims through their restaurant. I actually did vomit after eating this horrific thing, especially with all the cannibalistic thoughts going through my head. There Greek food is excellent, but if you're going to get one of their burgers, DONT do it. Just go to crown burger. That's all I have to say. I'm so grossed out now that I don't think I'll be going back to Yanni's for a long long time. more

Service and food terrible!!! 2/18/2011

Only one person greeting us little bit and that was young lady on register.Another one told us it s 5mins to closing and that was suppoed to mean.If you are lucky to get food that you just ordered sec a go and eat it asap,get your ass out.That kind of Customer Service I never experienced anywhere and food-meat was BURNED and dry.Greek souvlaki was dry and fries terrible including service.Too small and I wonder what are this comment talking about or were they paid to write it in good words.That is NOT greek food at all and really NEVER AGAIN!!! more

Addicted to THIS Greek 1/28/2010

I have been going to Yanni's since I moved here several years ago and it's the best greek in town. They never skimp! Their gyros are full to the brim and the meat is perfectly seasoned and not as greasy as what places like Crown serve. If you ask for a side of feta you get a ton and it's the smoothest, tastiest feta you'll ever have. It's really yummy on their greek salads! Their dolmadas are huge and they taste the best (I don't like the skinny tomatoey ones you get some places). The burgers are really good too if you have someone with you who doesn't feel like anything too authentic. Pros: great food and the best price! more

Great Food 8/13/2009

For anyone who is craving some quality Greek food in SLC area Yanni's Greek Express is the place to go. Conveniently placed for commuters where highland and 1300 meet, perfect for a quick bite, however a few items take some time to prepare like my favorite, the chicken greek salad. Great place to sit down, great service and a great atmosphere. One complaint i have is the poor quality of sound from the drive thru window, i much rather prefer to dine in. Like i said the service is great often you even see Yanni himself taking orders or visiting with friends. An all around great place. Pros: Food and Service Cons: Drive Thru Speaker, Parking, Busy Hours more

Warning: terrible service and sub par food 6/22/2009

I've really never been happy eating there in the 10 or so times I've been in the past 6 months. But, I go back because of its convenience and I hoped that each time it would get better. Pros: location Cons: poor service, Crown and Apollo much better, window leaking more

Mouth Watering 7/8/2008

Yanni's is the best greek food I've ever had! Hands down it is the only place my entire family and extended family can agree on. It just came up in casual conversation and now I just have to get it for dinner. All of our favorite thing is the Yanni's special. It's big enouph for 3 to 4 meals. It has you choice of lemon Chicken or pork, lemon rice or fries, and a Greek salad with pita bread. I always order extra pita bread it is fresh and amazing. I get the meals to go and on the way home the smell is killing me, as I'm dying to eat it. I usually snack on some of the fresh pita bread tio tide me over. I recomend this place to everyone I meet, as do all of my family for as long as I remember. Pros: Great fresh food, Large portions, always within 15 mins driving in Salt Lake valley Cons: Some things take awhile to cook, order before you leave the house or expect a wait. more

Best Real Greek Food! 7/4/2008

I am a regular. Love the food. Yanni is there personally every day and he's great. I have been going to his place for over 25 years and he's still the best. He takes pride in his work, his restaurant and the quality shows in every way. The price is very reasonable, too. Pros: Best food! You get helped quickly. Cons: gets very busy at lunch. But they are very fast to serve you. more

Good Greek Fast Food 8/7/2006

Yanni does good gyros, rice, mushrooms, zuchinni. Never had a burger here, always something Greek. I like the gyro with both red AND white sauce. A good change from other gyros. His dipping suace for fried items needs a little help. Go on off hours as it's very busy. Pros: Good flavor and approach to the cuisine Cons: crowded, parking more

Yanni does it all 12/15/2002

Great gyros. I've traveled the US and haven't fond better. Try the gyro or souvlaki with the red sauce,also great on fires. OPA!!!!!!! more
