8200 Providence Rd Ste 1100, Charlotte, NC 28277
(704) 541-5099

A sort of obscure restaurant, this is a mainstay for many locals and a favorite for many years when it comes to Greek salads. The meat here is always prepared very well, and the kabobs are always excellent. There is a casual diner feel here, so you won’t be wowed by the atmosphere. You’ll get nothing flashy or fancy here, just good, solid Greek food.

Recommended dishes: falafel sandwich with tahini, stuffed grape leaves,chicken suvlaki kabobs

5011 South Blvd, Charlotte, NC 28217
(704) 523-8296

Mad Greek Café is a small diner that has excellent Greek and American food. Prices are reasonable, and you get a lot of food. Everything’s homemade here, and it shows. The salads are fresh and the souvlaki is excellent. The exterior of the restaurant looks the “small diner” part, but don’t let that put you off. This is one of Charlotte’s best Greek options.

Recommended dishes: hummus, sea bass, kebab plate,

Charlotte, NC 28277

Owner Chris Limberakis is a native of the Greek islands and has decades of Charlotte restaurant experience. The Akropolis Kafé opened in 2008, and quickly gained a reputation around town. The decor is minimalist, but so are the prices. This is one of the places where you order at the front counter and the food is brought out to you. It's a casual place, and the staff is very friendly.

Recommended dishes: Koubideh platter, hummus, gyros, falafel pita, Greek chicken salad

A blend of American and Greek food, Showmar’s isn’t truly a Greek restaurant, but that doesn’t diminish the quality of their food. The restaurant itself falls in the middle ground of fast food and full service. They do have gyros, pitas and such along with American items like traditional burgers.

Recommended dishes: Virtually everything here is excellent with the pita burger a standout.
