Description

Dallas Observer's Description

Progeny of longtime Dallas restaurateur Charlie Venetis, Charlie's Opa! Grill is a rich cacophony of Greek food, sprawling the gamut with deliciously tender lamb chops, flaky spanakopita (a savory pie), juicy grilled chicken, gyros carvings that are lean, rich moussaka (Greek lasagna) and saganaki, thick pie sections of lightly breaded Romano cheese that is deep-fried, placed on a hot metal plate, doused with a shot of vodka that hisses and steams, and then set ablaze. The waiter shouts "Opa!," which must be Greek for "what the hell happened to your eyebrows?"

Tips from foursquare

  • Rob L. on 03/18/10

    Grab a gyro with fries with some avgolemono soup. Delicious!

  • Lauren H. on 01/02/11

    Tammy is the greatest server in the AM. The regulars all are tight knit and they brighten my day so much! Try the pork medallions.
