We shared Kostas Cafe for the first time back in 2019, and quickly learned how beloved the spot is, with comments like "the real deal," "the staff is fantastic," and "coming from a Greek neighborhood (Astoria, NY), Kostas is one of the few that hits the spot for me." And we’re bringing this gem for authentic Greek cuisine back to your feeds, to remind you to support the storied spot!

Three brothers brought their favorite recipes from Kratero, Greece to Dallas and opened Kostas Cafe in 1984. Thirty-seven years later, and the brothers work daily at their two locations in Greenville and East Plano!


We've dined at the OG Greenville spot, that draws you in with its tiny blue facade (find it past Mockingbird) and charming house setting. Sit down at one of the white-table cloth tables and find a lively, welcoming atmosphere inside. The interior is charming in its own way…it’s old school but the Greek motifs and paintings make the ambience romantic and fun.


Open for lunch and dinner, you'll find reasonably priced, flavorful meals on the menu! The menu offers soups, salads, sandwiches, desserts, and a variety of traditional appetizers and entrees! We highly recommend the greek salad or gyro for lunch -- both easy to takeout. 

For dinner, go with whatever Greek wine your waiter believes you'll like and start with the "Opa" greek fried cheese. Everyone chimes in "Opa!" after the cheese is lit on fire right at your table! We sampled the Greek combo platter with dolmas, spanakopita, souvlaki, broiled scampi & mousaka…everything was on point and the lamp chops were fabulous too! 

You really can't go wrong, don’t forget to end the meal with baklava!


There are two locations, with the OG on Greenville and a newer location in East Plano (on West Park Blvd). You can make a reservation directly through their website or by calling!
