Hey, Dave in PA:

I loooooveee greek food, and am excited to hear what other people might recommend in Philly and its environs.

Here are a couple thoughts:
- Dmitris: not strictly greek, but mediterranean and very good. i've only been to the queen village location, but there are a couple others:
- Effies: people rave about Effies, but the one time I went there the lamb was tough and stringy--a big no no for a Greek restaurant.
- Kanella: this place is fantastic. Seriously, we had a great meal there and it's BYOB. The servers were so sweet, the food was amazing.. Definitely try it:

Finally, if you're looking for more lunchtime fare, Bitar's is pretty rocking, if more middle eastern than strictly greek. .

hope that helps!
