Greek on the Street’s food truck may be parked for now, but the restaurant is still cooking up Greek and American classics in a stationary venue.
The restaurant opened in the fall at 3189 Delaware Ave., Kenmore, and has been serving breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Begin the day with pancakes or French toast starting at $5.50 for the short stack (two). All-day breakfast prices top off at $8.25 for three cinnamon walnut pancakes. Omelets ($7.95 to $8.95) come with choice of meat, cheese and veggies.
For lunch, the menu features more than two dozen sandwiches, clubs, wraps and salads ranging from $5.25 for tuna salad to $8.95 for the Greek Burger Deluxe (with roasted red peppers, spinach, feta and tzatziki sauce) to $9.95 for the open gyro or open beef souvlaki.
The restaurant also serves dinner in the evenings, featuring chicken souvlaki ($12.95), spanakopita ($13.95) and beef souvlaki and gyro ($14.95).
The décor is tastefully simple, with framed mirrors and small, metallic art dotting the walls. The floor plan is open and the room is bright, inviting visitors to take a seat right at the counter or in the cozy dining room. Even from the far tables, one can hear the sizzling and bustling from the kitchen. Between meal prep, the cook enjoyed chatting with us about the Buffalo Sabres and how the restaurant does not believe in small portions.
My husband, Patrick, and I were the only ones in the dining room on a freezing Thursday evening, but the cook and waitress were clearly busy preparing takeout orders.
Upon finding a table for two, Patrick and I perused the menu and went in opposite directions on our choices. Patrick loves feta, so he was happy when his open chicken souvlaki ($8.95) arrived with heaping mounds of the cheese, along with a generous amount of chicken on top of a salad of lettuce, tomato, onion, olives and pepperoncinis.
I was in the mood for breakfast for dinner, so I ordered the No. 3, two eggs with home fries and a choice of bacon, sausage or ham ($5.99, $6.99 with corned beef hash). The eggs were scrambled perfectly, and three sausage patties and crispy home fries filled out the plate. The only slight blemish was that the toast arrived cold. I politely let the waitress know, and she quickly offered to replace the toast at no cost.
Make sure to save room for dessert. The homemade baklava ($2.95) is a huge, turnover-shaped slice of heaven with its flaky sweetness. Rice pudding is available for the same price.
Greek on the Street is tucked into the plaza between Columbia and East Girard boulevards. The bright blue-and-yellow sign just catches your eye as you’re zipping down Delaware Avenue. If you pass it, it’s definitely worth backtracking if you’re looking for a fulfilling meal.
