The original Mesquite location of this charming family-owned mini-chain is a tiny dining room full of proof of chef Vasili “Bill” Kaprantzas’ Greek immigrant roots. There’s a poster of the chef’s grandmother and, of course, a bottle of Windex displayed with pride. The fry-topped gyro wrap, lamb souvlaki, pastitsio and calamari are superb, the lamb chops are cooked through but bursting with flavor and the steak fries are solid too. Although the baklava is over-the-top sweet, that’s an easy flaw to forgive when Chef Bill stops by your table himself to ask, disarmingly, “How did I do?”
Fun fact: A second location opened in Rockwall in late 2016, outside the area covered by this list.
