Niko Niko's Greek American Cafe Restaurant Review: This Greek-American café, housed in a glass-enclosed former gas station, is a Houston staple for its gyros and hummus. But don’t pass up the daily specials by Eleni Fetokakis, who opened the restaurant back in 1977. The pork chop is particularly juicy and good, but the lamb shank and grilled fish entrées are also winners. Order at the counter, grab a glass (or a bottle) of retsina, claim a table by the windows or on the patio during fair weather, and wait for the food. Hopefully, you selected a side of the oven-roasted saffron potatoes and the stuffed grape leaves, for which the place is renowned. There are vegetarian and gluten-free offerings and daily kids’ menu, too. Finish with a plate of loukoumades, tasty little Greek honey balls, and a cup of extra-strong Greek coffee. Weekend brunch (10 a.m. to 3 p.m.) features such “Greekfest” items as baklava french toast.
