Aligning with The Great Greek Mediterranean Grill’s mission to help Live Your Life Deliciously, the award-winning menu features chef-inspired homegrown recipes and big bold flavors, like the fan-favorite traditional Gyro, as well as Lamb, Steak and Chicken Souvlaki platters. In addition, guests can enjoy four signature house-made dips featuring Hummus, Tzatziki, Melitzanosalata (eggplant dip) and Tirokafteri (spicy roasted red pepper) and made-to-order fresh Feta Fries.
The Great Greek Mediterranean Grill offers a wide variety of customizable options, including a Classic Greek Salad with choice of Gyro Meat, Chicken Souvlaki, Salmon, or several other protein choices.
