    It's dead. Last I saw, the space is still vacant with no sign.

      No great loss, in my view. Now a REAL Greek restaurant in the Triangle - that would be nice!

        Or a cheap one. For a quick lunch on the go.

          There's a Tino's on Guadalupe I think? Around the 30 block. But Greek and Milddle Eastern food in Austin sucks and is expensive, don't waste your money.

          If you want insanely great Kabob, baba ghanouj, hummus, rice, road trip to Pasha in San Antonio. You can feed two big men on one plate of food for ten bucks. You'll be one of the few non-middle-easterner in the bunch, I believe the owners are lebanese but don't quote me on that.

      I was pretty disappointed by the location at the Arbor Walk on Mo-Pac. Can't speak for any other locations. If you can make it over to Airport, my go-to is Arpeggio Grill, just north of Highland Mall. The place itself is sort of dive-y looking, but the food is of good quality, and during lunch, the prices are really great.

        Hundreds of Tino's customers had their credit cards skimmed and had charges run up on their credit and debit cards all over the country. I'd watch out before eating at that place.

          Do you have a cite for this?

          I've always liked Tino's down at Slaughter and Brodie. It's a good value and most of the food is pretty tasty. I often get the lamb or chicken kabob as well (twice as much as anything else on the menu). Granted - I haven't been there for 8 months or so.

            Here's a cite from KVUE:
            This story says "many," but not exactly hundreds. Another story I found said "some." It appears to have been a breach of their processors' site. I doubt that any of the parties are interested in revealing just how many persons were robbed.

              "Hundreds of Austin residents have received calls from their respective credit card companies informing them that there's been a security breach which involves their cards. Many others have discovered fraudulent charges on their own.

              Affected individuals have one thing in common, they were all customers of Tino's Greek Cafe restaurant chain in the past few weeks."
