This local favorite is a good choice for anyone seeking a non touristy Greek restaurant in Tarpon Springs. Offering a mix of traditional Greek fare, plus a few of their own specialties, Mr. Souvlaki is an option for anyone seeking something a bit off-the-beaten path.
This restaurant has been a local favorite for over 30 years. They are most famous for their Greek Chow Mein. This unique dish includes sautéed peppers and onions, feta cheese, and rice pilaf with your choice of chicken, pork, shrimp, or veggies.
Their iconic Greek salad is delicious - definitely a must to start the meal. The spanakopita entrée is a really great choice if you are craving something traditional. While it is technically an appetizer, the serving size is definitely big enough to double as a meal.
The Fried Chicken pita is another excellent choice. Onions, tomatoes, tzatziki sauce, and secret spices and herbs, create a really flavorful sandwich. A bit pricey as you have to pay for fries separately, however, they are delicious, and thus, worth the extra fee.
Service was attentive although the food wait was really long.
The decor is pretty basic, although the space appears clean and well maintained. The blue checkerboard tablecloths add a nice old-school touch.
Mr. Souvlaki is a good choice if you are looking to escape the crowds at the more popular Tarpon Springs Greek establishments. Expect a no-frills setting and homestyle meals. As the Greek salad is the highlight here, make sure to save a little bit of room for something fresh and healthy.
