Apollo Flame is your best bet for Greek food in the Asheville region. While many traditional favorites like Spanakopita may be missing for the menu, they sure serve the best Greek salad and pitas in town.
Apollo is a wonderful family run restaurant which still uses the same recipes since opening date in 1974. Here you can expect a great authentic meal at a fair price. Apollo has been rated the best Mediterranean restaurant in Asheville for the past 10 years!
The menu is rather large with an assortment of appetizers, pizzas, subs, salads, pasta, traditional Greek plates, and American specialties. They also offer a small selection of vegetarian options. Really, there are so many delicious choices here for everyone, from a Mediterranean Spaghetti, to Gyro plates, to Mediterranean pizzas, and even a Vegetarian lasagna dish.
I recommending trying out the Veggie pita served with the most delicious Greek salad you will ever taste. This is an amazing dish and the portion is huge. You will not need to order any appetizers with this one! Apollo is also known for their delicious subs. Grilled chicken breast, roast beef, tuna salad - so many choices here! Also be on the lookout for the daily specials and definitely treat yourself to the Baked Spaghetti if available!
Service is prompt and friendly. The food was served timely despite the busy dinner rush.
The setting at Apollo is very casual and inviting. The space is a bit under decorated, however, still appealing and clean.
Apollo Flame is a delicious, authentic local Greek joint where recipes have been passed down for 3 generations. The prices are so affordable and the ambiance attractively laid-back. Skip all the overrated congested touristy restaurants downtown in favor of this local gem.
