What's Good in Greektown?

Does anyone have any recommendations for places in Greektown? Atmosphere doesn't really matter--just the food. Preferably Greek food.

  1. Samos on Ponca St. Cash only. Definately a favorite restaurant in Greektown. I have never eaten there (only done take out), but my SO and his co-workers eat lunch there weekly. Usually I order the gyro or a skewered shrimp dish w/ rice and cheese (don't know the name). I haven't had a disappointing meal from them yet.

    1. I like Ikaros for fish (and other things).

        I could eat the fried calamari at Ikaros until I burst. Best in town. I've never managed to order anything else -- there's other stuff on the menu that looks good, but once I'm seated I just have to go for that.

        Samos is very good if you don't mind waiting for a table. It's BYOB.

          Love love love the village salad at Ikaros. It's served family style, and that's what my family always orders when we go. Stupid family, eating my share of the salad.

          Greektown is just east of Highlandtown in east Baltimore. Ikaros is on Eastern Avenue just west of Ponca Street.

        2. Zorba's for grilled foods. Great grilled fish and octapus.

            Zorba's is also great for Kontosouvli, though be warned, the portion is huge.

          2. Greektown has the the best value for chow in Baltimore IMO. In addition to Ikaros and Samos, I would add Acropolis for their excellent dolmades and giouvesti-baked lamb.
