This small, yet recently expanded restaurant in the Montrose District is by far the most famous Greek restaurant in town. You'll find people from all walks of life eating here, makes for a great atmosphere. Walk in, wait in line (a guarantee because it is always packed), and order what you like. Then if you are lucky, you can find a table and wait for your meal. Excellent gyros, excellent salads, excellent everything! They have a great vegetarian menu as well. And try some tea or coffee with your meal. It will be crowded, but it's worth it! The top Greek restaurant in Houston, hands down!!!
Favorite Dish: Love the Mousaka! Beef w/ eggplant & potatoes. Excellent!!!
Niko Niko's is, if not the best, than at least the most popular Greek restaurant in Houston.
I used to come here with friends at least once a month, sit on the patio outside and enjoy a gyro. In 2005, Niko Niko's underwent a huge expansion, and has now remodeled, significantly altered their facade, and added parking.
Order style is order and pay then wait for your number.
Beer and wine available.
Favorite Dish: Gyros are great, as is the falafel. Big portions.
Niko Niko's is a wonderful little hole in the wall offering authentic Greek food at really low prices. The restaurant was once just a little stand with a drive thru window but the large amount of repeat business has kept Niko Niko's open for 20 years. The atmosphere is very laid back and the staff is extremely friendly and accomodating especially since they constantly have to deal with people who don't know how to pronounce the names of their dishes. Niko Niko's menu is huge and offers everything from Turulu Turulu to Keftedes. Whether you are a vegetarian or a devout carnivore if you love Greek food Niko Niko's will satisfy your palate.
Favorite Dish: Spanakopita - spinach pie with loads of feta cheese.
Mousaka - eggplant, beef and potato layered and delicious.
Dolmathes - beef and rice stuffed grape leaves. Try them with Tzatziki instead of the lemon sauce you'll be very happy you did.
This tiny restraunt is in a converted convienence store--so much for ambiance, but the food is terrific! Close enough to downtown that it is full of suits for lunch. Go there for a late lunch.
Favorite Dish: Stuffed grape leaves, gyros
