Greek Islands, Chicago, IL

Greek Islands Restaurant Review

: The energy seeps from the walls at this lively Greektown haunt, which is everything --- for better or worse --- you expect a Halsted Street taverna to be. When the saganaki (Greek cheese) is flamed tableside, and the shouts of “opa!” ring through the room, the fun is on. What is especially nice is that each of the dining rooms offers a different flair. If you are not sure about what to order, have one of the family-style dinners for two or more ($19.95 per person), which feature a bevy of classic, crowd-pleasing Greek specialties, like dolmades and pork from the spit. Or start with the skordalia, followed by lemony avgolemono soup and lamb chops or shrimp baked in a tomato-garlic sauce and a blanket of crumbled feta cheese. Generally speaking, kids like this place, too. Also located at 300 E. 22nd St., Lombard, 630-932-4545.
