Critic's Review

On my way back from Smokey Bones, I picked up some Greek Takeout for dinner at the newly opened Greek Kitchen.

It looks like a real restaurant from the street, but this is a take out place on a budget.

There are some tables where you can eat in, but it's not a place for a date. I ordered a Gyro, sauce on the side, and a Village Salad.

The food took about 10 minutes. When it came out, the counter guy mumbled something about the Feta Cheese already being included; an exchange indicated that he didn't know that Feta is included in a Village Salad; there was a big chunk of feta on top so I didn't understand at the time. When I got home and took a closer look, I realized that they meant that there was also crumbled Feta in the salad.

This was a poorly constructed salad; it should have bite sized chunks of cucumber and tomatoes, a good village salad doesn't have big slices of green pepper that need to be cut up. This salad was scraps grabbed from some other salad, which explains why there was feta mixed in.

The Gyro wasn't too impressive either; with a shortage of stuff in general.

The big problem was the Tzatziki sauce, which tasted like plain greek yogurt. Plain greek yogurt is pretty nasty. I couldn't put it on the Gyro. So I had to put it in the fridge, and fix the Tzatziki. Tzatziki sauce has to sit for a few hours, so I wouldn't be eating it for dinner. 2 garlic cloves, salt, some cucumbers and some dill and it was done. I also added some additional red onions and a couple of slices of ripe tomato.

A bad Gyro can be fixed, but it shouldn't have to be fixed.

Conclusion

My guess is that these guys won't be around long. When you first open a restaurant, you don't serve food like this. This is the food you get when a business gets jaded and loses their way. You can't build a customer base serving bad food because people never come back; and if they're serving this after 2 weeks it means that they don't know how to make good food.
