This is chef and owner Kostas Lazanas second restaurant; he also owns Kostas Lazanas also owns Opa! Greek Taverna in Rowlett. The appetizer menu has many traditional options like dolmades, spanakopita, falafel and saganaki. We opted to try a cup of avgolemono soup and garlic feta wings. The wings are seasoned with Greek oregano and a roasted garlic-feta sauce then topped with roasted red peppers. They are addicting and extra napkins are a must. Some of the standouts on the menu include pastitsio (Greek-style lasagna topped with bechamel and tomato sauce), lamb souvlaki platter (two skewers of lamb cubes with Greek spices), and the original gyro pita. The Hercules gyro pita is as large as it sounds. It's stuffed with gyro meat, chicken souvlaki, roasted red peppers, onions, tomatoes and fire feta and while the chicken could have been a bit juicier, the beef and lamb gyro meat with the fire feta saved the day. Be sure to order a slice of the baklava cheesecake made with two layers of creamy cheesecake with flaky baklava, honey and chopped walnuts in the middle and on top. It will probably be one of the most decadent desserts you’ll have all year. Pair it with a latte, Greek coffee, or an after-dinner libation.
