Going Greek

Are you a fan of Mediterranean cuisine who hasn't had much success finding any of value in the area?

The Greek House, located in Norman on Jenkins Avenue just north of Boyd Street, offers a solution to this problem. This establishment, which is run by a Greek family, gives a delicious option for authentic Greek food in Oklahoma.

The menu for the restaurant is certainly not the most diverse, but this clearly hasn't posed a problem for them, as one can see their parking lot full at all hours. All they really offer are gyros, but the taste of these gyros makes the limited selection justifiable. The meat is cooked and cut right in front of you, offering a most delicious smell you can recognize from a block away.

Another great thing about the restaurant is the price, which is cheaper than the average sit down restaurant. A gyro platter, which includes fries and Greek salad, runs about six dollars, and you'll be mesmerized by the amount of their always delectable meat that comes with this order. You're almost certain to need a to-go box by the time you're finished.

The service is also very pleasing. They are very polite and welcoming, and get the food out very fast. The atmosphere is very "Mom and Pop's", with all utensils and dishes being disposable, and all the food preparation being visible. The great combination of food and service has given them a loyal following.

“The food is really great,” Norman resident Trey Shelton said. “And the people there are always very nice. I've been eating there for years, and it really never gets old.”

The Greek House is open Monday through Saturday from 10:30 a.m. until 8:30 p.m. and is a wise choice for lunch or dinner.

“I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys good Mediterranean food.” Shelton said. “It's definitely the best I've had in the area.”
