    Drive by, looks low-volume. Head over to Greek Village in Northvale, a well-established gyro place for over 15 years...

      Greek Village is my number 1 go to, but I think I'll give this place a try for lunch since I am sometimes in the area. I'll report back.... hopefully sooner then later.

      I personally have not been to the Greek Corner Grill (yet); HOWEVER, I can emphatically tell you that I know of at least 7 people who have been there who think it is EXCELLENT (including one Greek friend of mine who lives in Park Ridge). The location is a tough one based upon the businesses that have come and gone in the same location. I wouldn't let the "low-volume" looks dissway you from checking it out based upon the number of people who I know who actually have been there and think that it is quite good.

        There's just no compelling reason not to drive another 8 minutes to Northvale and Greek Village. Why mess with a good thing?

          Part of being a "chowhound" is to explore and find things for yourself that might be really tasty. I love Greek village, I'm there all the time, but I'm always open to exploring other places.They may have something GV doesn't and it might be really good - you won't know unless you give it a try. One thing I saw on the menu was the roasted potatoes I love, and GV rarely has.

            I am a huge fan of the Greek Village but if there aren't any reviews of this place why discourage people from checking it out? I am always open to more options for good food.

          I went in with an open minded but it was not nearly as good as Greek Village. We ordered a pork souvlaki sandwich, (they don't have a lamb version) the pork was ok, but I like a good size chunk, these were very tiny. The tsiki seemed like it was not homemade, similar to the kind you get off of a street truck in nyc. It had no garlic whatsoever in it. The Greek Village's is nice and garliky, and cucumbery, this was on the pasty side. The chicken avgolemono soup was ok, a bit thick and starchy, we also ordered the Greek fries. These could have been awesome if the cooked/fried them, but they seemed as if they were nuked. The best part of the meal was the bakalava, the only dish I felt was better here then at GV. Given that, if I am in the area, I'd go back one more time and try a Greek salad, with spanakopita, (since the phyllo on the bakalava was good I am hoping the same would hold true with the pie). The service was nice and friendly.
