El Greco Grill
Houston, TX 77023
Houston Press' Description
This hybrid Greek restaurant/panaderia offers a cuisine not often found in Houston's heavily Hispanic East End. One side of the giant strip center that houses El Greco is a nicer-than-normal panaderia with cafe tables and chairs, while the other side offers homemade Greek food from owner Anestis Papadopoulos, who once owned an auto parts shop down the street. His pita bread is as good as his pastries, and his pastichio comes topped with a thick, fluffy mantle of nutmeg-warmed béchamel sauce. Gyro meat can occasionally be tough, but El Greco's strong Greek coffee will help overcome one of the rare poor meals here.
Tips from foursquare
Best pita bread ever!
El Greco's Gyro's Must Be Gods Greatest Invention!!!!!
The tzatziki is the best in Houston!
Checking out the East End's first Greek joint. Grand opening special is one gyro, one side and a drink $5 flat.
I want to try other things here, but I love the Gyro so much, I haven't yet.
