Husband and I went to El Greco at 31st and Guadalupe last night craving Greek food. My personal favorite in Austin has always be Athenian Grill...he always liked it, but had misgivings about their pastichio (sp?). My first clue should have been that there was nothing spinning on the spit, but not cluing in, I ordered a chicken gyro (the only other option was pork. Pork?). It was fajita chicken, not shaved, and they had baby greens on the gyro, and thin slices of onion, once again, like fajita onions. Not what I wanted at all. We also ordered french fries, which I think were fried in olive oil, which doesn't take that kind of heat well.
I don't know about this place. The older Greek lady working there seemed really nice, but the whole experience made me miss the hell out of Athenian Grill. What's the word with them re-opening?
