Most delicious Greek food!! Drive Thru is always fast! Dolmades - Fresh and tasty Greek Fries- Ask for a side of the Greek dressing or tzatziki and you will have the French Fry Heaven Gyro- This thing is the big mac of Gyros - its packed with all the goodies Seasonal: Fall/Winter - The Avgolomono soup- Lemon Orzo chicken soup- this stuff hits the spot.
So I ordered Z's through Postmates tonight. I ordered a lamb souvlaki plate and a side of falafel. I immediately get a call from Postmates customer service: I can't get the plate, because they're out of rice and potatoes. HOW does a restaurant run out of rice AND potatoes??? These are staples! I ended up switching my order to a lamb souvlaki pita sandwich. It was okay. It had maybe three pieces of lamb, and lots of vegetables. The vegetables were fresh, but there were too many conflicting flavors going on. My tongue was very confused by the whole experience. It was the gastronomic equivalent of one of those big-budget 3D movies that have no plot. I probably would have enjoyed my meal better had it been in plate form, as I originally ordered. So I might give this place another shot. I did not like the falafel at all, nor the garlic tahina sauce that came with it. I thought it tasted bad. I like my falafel crispy outside and fluffy outside. This falafel had a more uniform consistency, almost as if it had been frozen and microwaved. Like I said before, I know I caught them on a bad night, and I'll probably give them another shot.
Oh my gosh... so yummy. Great service as always :) I dreamed of Spanakopita all night and here I am enjoying the best in town.
Even though I love to cook, there are always a few nights during the week that I want to put the pots & pans aside and pick up an easy dinner. Z's is our go-to quick, healthy & delicious dinner joint! Being 1/4 Greek, I consider myself a 'Greek salad connoisseur' and this salad is the best one in the valley by far!!! I do substitute the creamy dressing that it comes with for their Village dressing (more of a vinaigrette). Their portions are huge and you will not be disappointed! I'm a weekly regular here! :)
Today I went for lunch and enjoyed better service and delicious food... no complaints just happiness and a full stomach !
Best Greek food in town! Love this place. Service is fast, friendly, and a good value.
As I am thinking about making dinner tonight, I think about how easy it would be to just get a large serving of Z's yellow rice and lemon potatoes and lovely Greek salad. I can't believe I haven't reviewed this place. A favorite take out spot, they even have Postmates delivery for the uber-lazy (pun intended). In the winter they also have a great lentil soup!
I love this place! I eat here all the time. The Greek salad with gyro is fantastic. The service is fantastic as well.
This would be a 5 star review if one of the times I went through the drive through I didn't have a hair in my Greek salad. With that said, the place is reasonably priced and provides a great pita sandwich on the go. Try to Greek fries and/or the Greek salad. I like it enough to continue to go back, despite the hair.
This place is fire. One review doesn't do it justice, there should be stories written about the food from here. I am unsure what is Chicagoan about this place, but let me tell you each bite takes you one step closer to feeling like your in Greece. You are doing your self a disservice if you do not try the Pita Club. That gyro sandwich heaven will make a believer out of any vegan, guaranteed. I make name my unborn child Z out of respect for this establish. Guy Fieri, hop in the red convertible of yours and head down to Z's and spread the word to the world. I'll be crushing Z's til the day I die.
Not very good service. The waitress that brought our food over mixed up a few orders and then blamed the customers. Some fries were not fully cooked. Gyro was bland had no flavor. Pita was dry.
This place is the real deal Chicago style Greek food. The gyros and Greek salad are the best I've had in Phoenix and it is very reasonably priced. Can't wait to go back very soon!!
I came here with co-workers and was instantly hooked. I usually get the falafel pita (I add hummus; no tomatoes) with fries. You can get it as a combo, which comes with a drink, for less than $9. The falafel is always perfectly crisp & tasty. Their pita bread is always so very fresh; always. Like, seriously; they never have an off day. Their hummus is a yummy traditional flavor with a light olive oil. That heavenly pita bread, spread with hummus, encompassing 3-4 crunchy falafel balls, with cool lettuce and fresh cut onions = triumphant flavor explosion in my mouth. I close my eyes and go, "ommmmm" with each bite. And the french fries? OMG. Made to order, so they're fresh, hot, & crispy every time, and coated with a delicious seasoning. Simply irresistible. No diet is safe! If you go with friends, split a side order of fries. You'll get a huge heap for only $2. My meat-eating friend is in love with their Caesar salad w/ grilled chicken. She says the chicken is amazing & seasoned to perfection. There are a decent number of tables inside, some Mediterranean decor, and TVs. They have self-serve fountain drinks as well as bottled water. There are Sriracha bottles scattered about for your spicy-dosing pleasure. They also have an outside covered patio with several tables. I love the patio during non-summer months. We come during the lunch rush and the service is always pretty fast. When we're rushing or just being lazy, their convenient drive-thru saves the day. The parking lot can get very busy though, and sometimes there's a tight squeeze between the parked cars & the drive-thru, so be cautious with your vehicle. Z's Greek is an awesome lunch or dinner spot for veg*ns & omnivores. Consistently amazing food. Best falafel in the Valley, hands down.
Great good food, flavors, and prices. All plates are around $10 be prepared for big portions. I have tried the Greek salad and add chicken ($2 extra). Chicken is grilled they add lettuce, olives, feta, cucumbers, ranch,and a side of pita bread. Delicious !! Gyro are excellent and fresh tasting Hummus with pita bread $5 fresh and yummy Must try !! you will be going back
Delicious food,huge portions, and awesome customer service! I've eaten here many times, and I'm NEVER disappointed.
If you're reading this review, I'm assuming that you're considering to, against your better judgment, try the old pizza-hut-looking Greek place with a random drive through that you pass by on the way to Pita Jungle but you're thinking "It can't be as good as Pita Jungle. I mean, it's a drive through!" To you, I have two things to say: 1) For a place that has "Pita" in its very name. Z's kicks Pita Jungle's hippie little ass as far as delicious, pillowy, perfect little pitas go. Oh my god they are amazing, I could eat them all day. 2) The drive through is actually Z's Greek's best asset, because the inside kind of reminds me a dumpy fast food place and the drive through makes it a convenient place to pick up food that isn't the complete garbage that comes out of most drive through windows. Actually, one of the hardest drives I ever have to make is the 2 mile drive from the end of the Z's Greek drive through to my condo. The smell their delicious gyros infiltrates my car and makes it impossible to concentrate on anything other than GETTING THE EFF HOME TO GET THIS FOOD IN MY MOUTH. I'm an even bigger driving hazard than usual, putting my own life at risk in the name of pita, but it is totally worth it. I usually get the Chicken Souvlaki pita, stuffed with juicy marinated chicken and a side of tangy tzaziki (I add the sriracha myself), and a small Greek salad, loaded with enough feta cheese it's probably not even a healthy choice anymore. I also LOVE their avgolemono soup when it's not 1 million degrees (though I can't pronounce it and look like an idiot when I try). I can usually get delicious, filling dinners for me and boyfriend and get out of there for less than $20, which makes it a great, inexpensive, healthy-ish option for nights when I don't feel like getting out of a damn car, letting alone cooking an entire dinner. So to answer your questions: Yes, you SHOULD try the questionable looking Greek place, yes, they ARE better than Pita Jungle, and yes, drive thru is always the way to go (unless they remodel their inside, which I would totally love, but I don't think it's quite made it to their business model roadmap.) Four stars!
Like so many other places, I tried Z-Greeks because of one of my customers. While at work one evening I met Karen and her husband. Karen works there. Not many days following my service to them, I decided to gallivant to this locale. Like The Stand it has that "Mom & Pop" look about it. I love that. Simple. I was greeted by Karen, and having eaten little Greek cuisine, Karen helped me out in deciding on an appropriate fair. I am not a fan of Lamb at all so she suggested the Chicken Pita. Good choice. I selected their small Greek salad as my side. The veggies were crisp and fresh, and the dressing was rich and creamy. Very delicious. The size of this Pita was immense. I'm a big guy and could really put away some groceries, but this was big. The chicken was cooked perfectly and seasoned very well. The dressing and vegetables were a delicious part of this gargantuan mass of Greco-tastiness. The pita was soft, easy to chew and had a slight buttery taste. The ambiance was very casual with traditional Greek music playing, fitting to the bill of fair. I recommend Z's to anyone looking to try Greek cuisine for the first time or to the seasoned Greco coinsure wanting a high quality meal for a great price. Under $9.00 was impressive for the portions. I will return, and so should you.
Got the pita club with the salad. And it was amazing!! Ive been here about 5 times and every time it has been high quality food and service. Ps. It is VERY clean. My girlfriend couldn't even find dust on the window seals.
DRIVE-THROUGH GREEK FOOD, GUYS. I've been coming to Z's since they opened, and I'm always impressed with the quality and flavor of the food. Yes, it may look a little whatever from the outside, but don't let that sway you! The food is absolutely delicious, well priced, and did I mention the drive-through?! As a Greek person, it can be pretty difficult to find quality stuff in this town, but Z's totally fits the bill. Their hummus and lentil soup are some of the best I've had and I love that the pita bread is always warm and soft. If you're a fan of Greek food, I highly recommend you check this place out!
Love it!!! For years I have been going to Z's at least once a week (sometimes more ) to get their awesome village salad with gyro and grilled chicken. It is the perfect healthy dinner. Definitely make sure to order an extra side oftheir delicious Tzatsiki sauce. You will love it! The staff rocks too.
I visited Z's Greek on a Saturday night. This place did not impress me at all. I ordered a Greek salad with chicken and Italian dressing. Apparently, their version of this dressing consists of olive oil only, but the cashier failed to tell me that. The salad was smothered in olive oil! However, not one olive was in the salad. Feta cheese was on the side. God knows I wanted that baklava; thank goodness I didn't get it. I was very disappointed in this place, especially after reading all the rave reviews!
I just adore Z's Greek. They have quality food I have never been disappointed by the quality standards here. I did see and read Morgan's review and because of her honest post displaying the owners care for this business I fell in love with this place even more. When the owner is visible and tries to work out customer complaints that is stellar in my book. I eat here and every time I do... I try getting away with one Gyro but after a couple of bites I just get sucked into BUYING ANOTHER. I can't seem to shake two Gyro's each and every time. That fresh bread and great meat and the extra Tzatziki is heaven in a pita. I bite and feel like I'm flying into the heavenly place of food creation. Now this Tzatziki sauce at this place is the best ever. I have tried others and they should be ashamed of even calling it Tzatziki. Z's Tzatziki is perfect to me and I appreciate the thickness of it. I don't desire runny sauce with no flavor like the other places. Z's Greek your sauce rocks. I'm pretty sure Los Angeles felt that shake. LOL... Now I write to the owner... I don't know you but I love how you do business. You are stellar to me because I have never been disappointed eating there. Your place is my treasure and treat. I love how clean your restaurant is and I love how the guys on the grill are eager to please and they always try to recognize your customers if they aren't to busy to do so. PLEASE... Stay visible and keep checking the heart beat and pulse of this treasure. And buy doing so your securing your brand, your name (as a person and as a business), and your reputation. You are one of the top few in my book who even care. THANK YOU for always doing your best to do business right and to show your appreciation for your customers and their opinions. And THANK YOU for always keeping me in a position to be happy I spent my money and for sending me away always thanking God for your food and your concern. BRAVO AND STELLAR JOB Z's GREEK! BRAVO! Nia
Finally made it back here after almost 3 years, this time joined by Mike C. and Jackie R. It's still a simple, clean, blue and white cafe and the prices haven't gone up! :-) This time I went with a Gyro Combo with a Greek Salad for my side and serve-yourself Lemonaide. The Gyro was big and totally delicious with plenty of meat and lots of tasty sections of tomato along with the other ingredients; and the Salad? It was big too, for a side salad, and just super good with all its Feta Cheese and other goodies. The counter service was friendly too! With everything just right, it was an easy 5 Stars for Z's Greek this time, and it was all only $7.95. :-))
Yummy! This is my favorite fast Greek restaurant. The food is very fresh, delicious and reasonably priced! I have eaten the Greek salad with and without chicken- the cheese they use is the best!! I like the kabovs, gyros, falafel, span a Kopitar and, of course, the baklava! The staff is very nice! They have drive-thru if you are in a hurry, a dining room, but I like the little patio! They have authentic Greek music playing. .. it is like a mini vacation! Seriously, if you like Greek food, you have to try this.
Great service! Very friendly, fresh food and welcoming! I've tried many Mediterranean restaurants and by far even with the drive thru wait I would be back again!
I have been coming here for years. Even now living 1500+ miles away...This is a tasty stop while in Arizona. I really love the flavorful gyro platter. I will say, the bathroom this visit was so gross. Seemed more like an out house at the fair. I really hope the kitchen is kept cleaner. :/
Pros: I usually order the gyros sandwich with a Greek salad as my side. Half the neat goes on the salad for lunch the next day. Even with half the meat missing, sandwich still a very filling meal. Family owned. Huge portions, private parking lot with enough parking, and they take credit cards. Cons: Not exactly like the Greek food I'm used to back home, but close.
I ordered Lamb Souvlaki Platter. I don't care too much for Greek salad as it is a bit sour for my taste so I asked if I could substitute with french fries. The guy said yes, but I was charged a full price of $2.95 for a handful of fries. The lamb was very tasty but it was a little salty. The rice was delicious. For the amount of food I received, I think the price was a bit high. I will probably go back, but not often.
I and many of my co workers hit Z's for lunch quite frequently. There is a reason we keep coming back. This place rocks! Z's represents great Greek fare, cooked perfectly and at great prices. You can score lunch here for ten bucks or so. I usually get the falafel and it's always done just right: hit and fresh, slightly crunchy outside, soft and tasty inside. Another bonus: all combinations include your choice fries or a Greek salad. Z is a great guy running a winning establishment. If you want some kick-tail Mediterranean munchies at a great price, swing by Z's. I'm looking forward to my next trip there!
Pretty much as good as it gets for Greek food in the Valley. I used to work at the Pita Jungle down the street from Z's. As some of you may know, Pita Jungle serves an array of "Mediterranean" food that I (and many others) pity. So, on my lunch breaks, rather than getting my employee discount at Pita Jungle, I'd drive a few block to Z's. First off, I love that they have drive-through. It makes things much more convenient for me. Secondly, their food is amazing. I always order their falafel platter, which comes with a small Greek salad, lemon-potatoes, rice, Greek Pitas, and five perfectly fluffy and delicious falafel balls all for $10.99 or something like that. I cannot express how delicious their falafels are. Compared to anywhere else I have gone to get Greek food in the valley, the falafel at Z's blows them out of the water. They have that perfect crunch on the outside, and are not over-cooked on the inside. They are not overpowered with garlic or parsley, and have a delicate blend of all of the flavors that falafel are supposed to have. Their Greek salad is also exceptional. The ingredients are fresh, and to my surprise it comes smothered in feta cheese (another thing I love). But, the thing that really makes the salad is the salad dressing. It's a traditional Greek yogurt based dressing with a slight taste of lemon. The thing is, is that it's not overly pungent or sour like some Greek yogurt dressings are. It's creamy and smooth, and tastes wonderful. All the other components of the meal, like the potatoes, the rice and the Greek pitas are all above-average quality as well. I've also ordered their crazy fries, which are so simple yet so good. Fries with feta and cheddar cheeses. It may not sound good, but it sure tastes good. If you're looking for great Greek food in the valley, you've found it at Z's
I'm always on the lookout for an inexpensive lunch spot near the Arcadia ice rink. Stopped in with a friend and we enjoyed the falafel pita with fries and drink for $8.95. We discovered that falafel is a breaded vegetarian patty. The pita was fresh and soft. The food was delicious and the counter service was helpful. The white and blue decor reminded me of Greece. We enjoyed the patio seating even though there is lots of traffic passing by on Indian School Rd.
It was good. Was it amazing? No. I judge all gyros by the standard of a place on State St in Madison that I consider to be the epitome of gyro excellence. The fault in this gyro's stars was really its dryness. I expect a gyro to be juicy to the point of greasy. I also like it to be slathered in tzasiki and onion. These qualities (or lack thereof) could all be benefits for you depending on your point of view. So take this assessment for what you will. The option of a side salad was a nice touch and I enjoyed that. Although I think the whole mentality of offering a healthy side dish option is part of why I didn't enjoy the main dish. Just sayin'
I was in Phoenix for work and saw this place had really good reviews. For a drive thru Greek restaurant, the food is delicious! Had the chicken souvlaki platter and hummus appetizer. Chicken souvlaki was delicious, flavorful and great char on the chicken. Comes with rice, lemon roasted potatoes and a Greek salad. Greek salad had lots of feta, soooo good! Only downside was the salad came with ranch, not sure if there are other options but the salad was good on it's own and I used some of my tzaziki sauce... nom nom! Hummus was meh, just mediocre but the pita was fluffy and delicious. Overall, I'll definitely try this place again.
Great portions, really the were a little long getting to us and parking is crowded all in all I would come back...
Best Greek food outside of Chicago. Gyros a hit. My wife and I often split the Greek salad with chicken. Everything is good. Have tried almost all the menu. Young ladies are always friendly. Has to be good, the cops are always here!
I love z's greek . food is amazing i love spanikopita and falafal there. They are yummy highly recommend this place . its not that expensive so anyone can go have tasty food
Generous helpings but Greek salad had too much cheese and dressing. Spanokopita was deep fried. Definitely fast food environment.
The food is delicious. Not too salty. Decent portions not as generous as some of the pictures depicted, but still satisfying. If you like Greek food I would recommend this place. Meals cost $7-$12 plus a variety of sides. Also serves burgers for you non-adventurous companions.
The gyro combo is delicious and a great value.
I've been past this place many times, and decided to stop by recently. I got two gyros with fries, and my girlfriend got a greek burger. Both were pretty damn good. The place is clean, the lady at the cash register was pleasant to deal with, and the gyros are enough to feed half the Spartan army. A little pricey but you get enough food for it to be worth it. For some reason unknown to me though, it leaves me craving ice cream. That aside, I'll be going back for more in the future.
We went in there and I ordered the gyro pita, which came out cold and tasteless. The person I was with, ordered a hot dog it came out burnt. Honestly how can you screw up a hot dog. When we went to the front counter the girl was really rude and just gave us our money back, rather than trying to rectify the situation.
Excellent Greek salad with chicken. Flavoring of the chicken is amazing!! Tons of food in the regular size salad. My husband had the lamb slouvaki and did not like it at all. Was very fatty. Next time he will order the chicken or gyro. The exterior building is definitely deceiving. My husband said he would never set foot in the place because it looked dumpy. Once I told him about the reviews on Yelp and we tried out the food, he totally changed his mind. So don't let the exterior base your decision! Great fast casual dining. Impressed by Take out and delivery too!
Ordered the lamb souvlaki meal and spanakopita appetizer. Everything was excellent! I'm not a huge fan of larger cut fries but they were tasty and the container was cut open a bit to let them breathe. The best part was that everything had flavor!!! The meal was $8.95 and the spanakopita was $5.
omg im almost not wanting to post this so I don't have to wait longer for the food, but yea I have become addicted to this place, feta cheese heaven, I don't know how they do it but the salad is always fresh, and the rice and potatoes, I pretty much check this place out every couple of weeks...if you like kabob and home cooking style w great service this is where you can consistently get good food and service, yay
One great perk about Z-Greek, it is on the way home from the gym and it has a drive through option. I have had higher quality and better tasting Greek food before, so its hard to justify giving anything higher than 3 stars. I don't eat beef so I have never had the Gyro, but the chicken is decent. The one thing I am disappointed is that the skimp out of the meat. I feel like I am not getting true value for my buck when I order the chicken platter. The sauces they provide are good but need a little bit more garlic and zest. Overall considering the time of the day I get food here (late at night near closing), I would still return because of the drive thru option that is convenient when it is blistering hot or raining like crazy during a monsoon.
From the food to the customer service this place never disappoints.
Always great!!!! Nothing fancy but great food and good people. Great spot for a quick easy yummy lunch
I loved this place. It was packed so I figured it was good. It didn't disappoint. The quality of the chicken and meat was so high. I loved the pita bread, french fries and salad. I'm a big fan and will return. Also the young girl behind the counter was very friendly and helpful.
The food here is really fresh and really good! It's a smaller quaint little Greek restaurant in Catalina, AZ. I usually have lunch there and occasional diner. The food is always good! You can't go wrong at this place.
I just tried this place for the first time and WOW! Great food! I got the gyro combo, and every single bit was awesome. I will definitely be back.
Wow. Am I lucky! I had a yen for spanokopita (spinach pie) and Yelpers led me to try Z's Greek. I bit of a trip for us but we travel for good food (or what we think might be good food). The place and the parking lot was not crowded for a Saturday evening (which I use as an indicator) but we took a chance. AND we're glad we did! BTW, there is no wait service. You order and pay and then they bring out the food to your table. The people at the counter were quick and delightful. Had the Spanokopita platter which came with rice, red lemony potatoes, pita bread and a Greek salad. I asked them to double up on the potatoes since I am not a fan of rice (don't report me to my latino ancestors). Upon arrival, the platter was huge. The greek salad with full of feta cheese with fresh lettuce tomatoes, green peppers and AN olive. DELISH, DELISH, DELISH. The pita bread was NOT the bag pita. This was real, thick greek pita bread. The red potatoes were amazing--Not overcooked and lemony. The Spanokopita (they gave me two pieces) was very good but to me it lacked salt. I think more feta cheese in it would have made it perfect. I TOTALLY enjoyed my meal and had left overs to take home. Hubby had the Lamb Souvlakli platter which came with two skewers of grilled lamb with green peppers in between the chunks of meat. He had the rice with the red potatoes, pita bread and greek salad. WOW, WHAT A platter for under $11 considering the high price of lamb in the supermarket. Nicely done too! Hubby loved everything on his plate and his empty plate was evidence of that. Desserts were $2.95. Do YOU think we were leaving without dessert? No way, Jose! Ordered chocolate cake and tiramisu cake. Both were really, really, really, really good---but I have to say that the chocolate cake was better than the tiramisu. The chocolate cake was made of DARK, DARK, DARK, chocolate with chocolate shavings (dark) on the icing. OMG... just thinking about it makes me want to drive back and get another one. Hmmmmmm, why didn't I bring an extra one home???????? I guess I can't think straight on a full stomach. BTW, Z's Greek has many other things on the menu such as burgers and hot dogs-- so if you are eating out with your kids and want to have Greek food, you can still have your Greek fix and give the kiddies what they like. One more thing----the lack of cars in the parking lot was evidence of the fact that they do a brisk take out business. So my concern of not seeing cars was unfounded. I for one am going back again and again for my Greek fix. I saw people ordering chicken souvlaki platter and it looked amazingly good. Is is bad manners to check out other people's food when you have your own? This is something Jerry Seinfeld might ponder about. Not me. I want to look and see what you are eating so I could eat it next time. Enjoy Z's Greek. I most certainly did!!!!!
I am a complete sucker for this place, especially after I am kicking the weights around. It's one of my go to spots after a work out. For the price, they are so generous with the lamb. I usually get the greek salad with a side of gyro meat or the gyro dinner plate. Their pita bread is always fresh and yummy. Service is fast and friendly. Consistently good food always. I've never ate inside because drive thru is impressive enough for me to be a return customer!
Expected a good restaurant but this is awesome, massive portions, delicious food This place is a gem!
The food is good, but not amazing. Definitely not as good as the reviews infer. I'll stick to George's Famous Gyros in tempe.
When the owner send you a message saying he wants to make it better for you next time that is wonderful that he stays that connected with his customers. Service is huge and for that he is brought his last review back up! Thank you for that!
Fantastic hummus! I'm not sure why hummus has to be so bland in so many places. Not at Z's! Lemony with an olive oil drizzle and topped with a kalamata olive. Fantastic! If I had to change one thing, I'd want it to be just a touch smoother, but it's still creamy enough for my taste. I'm also a fan of their hot and fluffy pita bread and tzatziki sauce. Chicken kabobs were pretty tasty as well. Don't be fooled by it's less-than-impressive exterior...this place is not to be missed in Phoenix.
Amazingly good food at a FANTASTIC price. Very friendly staff. You must try the Gyro Platter. Everything looks delicious. I can't wait to go back
We eat here, counting lunches, at least a half dozen times a month. I've never been disappointed! They serve fresh and delicious food and I am always perfectly satisfied when I leave. Last Friday, on Halloween, I had a gyros platter, complete with rice, roast potatoes, a side salad and grilled pita. The gyros was hot, with crispy edges, piled high. The rice was golden, well-flavored and not sticky/gloppy. The potatoes were small red potatoes, perfectly roasted. The cut side was carmelized and the taste of lemon was perfect -not overwhelming. The salad was wonderfully fresh and crunchy, and their dressing was tart, salty and went well with the generous amount of crumbled feta cheese on top. The tzatziki on the side is excellent, as usual. Darling wife had a chicken pita with fries. Both were terrific. They salt the fries with a seasoned salt and they are always hot. (Let's not even start on the Crazy Fries. That's a whole 'nother level of AMAZING). GREAT FOOD. GO. ENJOY.
I eat here 2-3 times a week. Their regular Greek Salad with gyro is my go-to meal. It never disappoints. The reason why? Well, it is loaded with hot fresh gyro meet, fresh crisp romaine, juicy tomato wedges, Greek olives, pepperoncini, crunchy cucumbers, and feta. Lots and lots of delicious feta. The tzatziki sauce is cool and garlicky - yummy. I always ask for 2. Who needs dressing when you have when you tzatziki sauce. To top it all off, the service is friendly and delivered with a smile.
Great food. It looks like a shabby place. But its a good whole in the rock restaurant. You cant go wrong with any gyro
Love Greek food and this place has some of my favorites. Don't let the fast food look fool you. I do love the fact they have a drive thru which is a savior after leg day at the gym. The Gyro are a must and love their Greek salad. Like mention before they have nice portions.
An excellent place for just having an awesomely delicious plate of Greek food! U order from the counter and a very reasonable price then EAT! For $10 I had a great plate of greek salad, lemon roasted potatoes, some pita, saffron rice and a generous portion of Gyro meat! If you are near the airport and the traffic is too much, then come to Z's to kill time with some great food and a continuous stream of Greek music with some TVs! OPA!
When I saw the overly decorated facade and the giant sign that read "Z Greeks Chicago Style", I literally said "oooohh boy" out loud as we parked and approached the building. As we perused the menu, I turned around to notice a large group of ladies sitting at a table with one heaping plate of food. They notice me staring and say "this is the Gyro platter". So my friend and I look at each other and agree to share one gyro platter between the two of us. At $12, it seemed pretty reasonable. The plate came with rice, greek salad, baked small potatoes, a stack of pita bread all topped with a giant mound of gyro meat and two small containers of tzatziki. As we started engulfing down, we noticed how much food it was, even for 2 people. The mound of meat alone was a lot, but the carbo load (potatoes, rice, bread) definitely helped. The sauce was thicker than I'm used to, but it all had a good flavor. As we worked through our lunch (and didn't even finish it), we noticed that the group of ladies next to us had all gotten a platter- one each. Damn yo go ladies! The cashier (and i'm assuming, owner) later stopped by ours and every table asking if our meal was good. I thought that was an excellent touch, even at a fast food joint. Classy points all around!
This place is bomb. Go there or be square. I love this place, their food is so delish! Greek salads are large and filling and the chicken souvlaki with potatoes and rice is magnificent. Staff is so friendly! And there is a drive thru!!! Helloooooo convenience!!!
Food is good however will not be back. Was in the drive through line for 10 minutes once I finally made it to the screen to order I was told they were closed and I was basically S.O.L. Seeing as I was there BEFORE close I feel I should have still been served... If not, they should close earlier! This is horrible customer service and next time I'm in the mood for Greek food I will drive a little further!
Superbly fresh food, served by a friend staff. Restaurant is very clean & bright, with covered seating outside. Had the Greek salad with gyro meat & fries. Nice portion size for the price. A REALLY full meal for $11. I'm a fan.
Eating here takes me back to Chicago, back to this lunch joint I used to love on the west side. Even the restaurant building itself feels familiar. Older certainly, but clean and comfortable. Generous portions of delicious lunch style Greek food. It's exactly what I was looking for.
Everything I've had here has been good, especially like the chicken plater as it's enough to fill you and have leftovers for a good price
I'm glad that Z's Greek has beaten the curse of this particular location. I've been in the neighborhood for about 10 years and I can't tell you how many restaurants opened and closed before them. To be clear, this is because they offer something no one else does in this part of the Valley: drive-thru Greek! Now the inside is nice enough--clean and there's even a flat-screen TV. But when you don't want to get out the car--maybe after a big night out the day before; hypothetically, you understand--and big name fast food or the ubiquitous mom and pop Mexican places (one on every corner) won't cut it, Z's is the place to go! Bear with me as I list my favorite items. Ahem. They make a good Chicago-style hotdog. If I'm eating a hotdog, it's here. I don't eat them otherwise. Good stuff. The fries are great; make 'em crazy with cheddar and feta cheese. Need some veggies? Skip the fries and get a good-sized Greek salad as your side instead. Now for the good stuff. The lamb kabobs are superb! (There were a few times they were a bit too blackened, but that hasn't happened in a while.) The spanakopita (spinach and feta pastry) is so tasty. But my absolute favorite is the moussaka (sort of like shepherd's pie, but way better). I know the American fare seems like a safer bet, but do yourself a favor and give it a try. Seriously, where else can you get something that taste's like mom's home cooking from a drive thru? Also, the baklava is pretty good. To be fair, the burgers and gyros could use some work. The burgers used to be amazing--best burgers in town, but something changed. I'm not sure what. I think the grill may be too hot because more often than not the patties are charred. And I've never particularly cared for Z's gyros. The shaved meat is really bland and I don't like how they dress it. Some readers may remember Elie's Deli (may it rest in peace) down on Thomas. Elie's was the holy grail for gyros. Flavorful meat, dressed simply with big cuts of raw white onion and tomato wedges and a nice simple tzatziki. Z's gyros would benefit from leaving out the the mounds of iceberg lettuce for sure. Otherwise, maybe brown the chipped gyro meat? To summarize, Z's Greek offers a unique drive-thru (or eat-in) option. Whether you want really good fries or something a little more Greek, Z's is establishing itself as a neighborhood institution. Here's to many years of continued success.
Absolutely one the best gyros I ever had. It was moist and tender though meat was a bit bland until you put on the creamy tzatziki sauce. The pita was fresh and delicious as well. I got mines in a combo with seasoned fries. The fries were crisped to perfection and well season with some Greek crack as I will call it. Would recommend to anyone craving a gyro or good inexpensive Mediterranean food.
Food is the best and the owner is always sÃºper friendy. He takes every single order and delivers it to your table. Been coming here for years since before the name change. I always get the chicken souvlaki with a side Greek salad. Portions are huge and I think the side salad is so big that it could suffice as a meal itself. Pita jungle had nothing on Z's, food is far superior quality and better prices.
My favorite Greek restaurant ever! My only issue is you have to get there before the lunch rush if not your fighting for a parking space and a place to sit. But it's worth the fight for their Greek salad or Gyro.
5 reasons for 4 stars. 1. The food is great 2. Large portions 3. Drive thru so it's fast but NOT fast food tasting 4. Friendly staff Minus 1 star bc it is a little higher priced compared to similar restuarants ie: pita jungle and I wish they would stay open just a tad bit later.
Z's is always a hit for lunch - the gyro style cheese steak has remained the go-to for a long time for me, but there are other healthy options as well. Fries are always tasty, but if you opt for a salad, its loaded with great ingredients and feta cheese! the interior could use an update, but the food is the reason to dine here, not the ambiance.
Amazing food and amazing service!!! Highly recommend anything on this menu- best Greek!!
Fantastic!! I've driven by this place a few times planning to stop by one day and I finally did! Great food, had the chicken souvlaki pita and salad, it was amazing. The pita was delicious and the salad was perfect size with lots of topping and fresh cold lettuce. Staff was awesome, the girl running the front counter was really friendly and incredibly efficient. Kudos to the staff, I'll be back!
Got a falafel pita combo with greek salad and soda for less than $10. They gave me the wrong order, which I noticed once I got to the car. Returned, swapped bags and left. They redid the other order since I peeked in to make sure it was mine. Nice to see because I could imagine some places just giving the other customer that bag I looked into. Very happy with the food. I'm a huge fan of tzatziki sauce and this place was just right. I should learn to make my own batch to store in the fridge and put on everything I eat. Yes, the salad has a ton of feta, but I think it's better to have a lot and scrape some off than to have too little and wanting more. Atmosphere isn't anything special - more of a quick-bite and/or carryout place imo. I'll be back to try their meat dishes.
Even though it looks questionable and is just down the street from Pita Jungle, Z's Greek is hands down the best Greek food in the neighborhood. The pita alone is way better than down the street. Everything is fresh and the owners are very nice. I have not eaten there, but call ahead and pick up in the drive through weekly. You should definitely give it a try!
I love good greek food and this works for me!
One of my favorites. I used to live in the neighborhood and even after moving, I will still travel back to get a gyro, spanikopita, or a feta burger. Love this place!
First time being disappointed at one of my favorite places to eat (notice all my updates). I will not be coming here on a Tuesday ever again. The food we got had no flavor, canned mushrooms (when I know they make their stuff with real ones), salad was drenched, and their burger was a frozen patty that tasted and looked like a soy burger. Service wasn't their best, felt ignored. I didn't get a receipt, so I just ate some of it and threw the rest away. Which is a really big waste for me spending $17. I know for a fact how awesome they truly are. They've given me nothing but great service and great food all the last times I've been there. I brought someone along with me this time and told them how great it was, and my favorite Greek joint let me down this ONE time. I'll come back for sure, BUT I'll make sure the owner is working that day before ordering anything. And yes, my time here Tuesday was only worth two stars because I have had better from them.
