Best Greek in DC .... Hands down ...... Ambrosia Cafe in Rockville

I found this place a few years ago when I was working in the area. They had a small, old, pizzaria type restaurant in a strip center on Rockville Pike, they have since moved to a newer place further down the Pike. It was what you expected when you got the menu and saw the moderate prices and selections. Then the food arrives and you realize that you've found heaven for cheap. Absolutely the best food and best food value for this style of eating anywhere !!! I can't praise them enough. Try the The Chef's Combo: more meat than this 350lb carnivore can finish or The Island Hopper's Platter: a combination of many Greek favorites. Thier Roasted Chicken and Potatoes are like something Grandma would cook for Sunday dinner and The Lemon Egg Soup is wonderful. All of the appetizer dips are great, too. Oh, and to add insult to injury; if you have any room left, the Baklava or Rice Pudding is authentic and heavenly. Give them a shot, you won't regret it. I live in Texas now and dream about the place.
