Zorba's - Plano
1501 Preston Road
Plano, TX 75093
OPA!!!! Just imagine a nice breeze, if you will, as you sit down at Zorba's Greek Cafe and allow yourself to be taken straight to the Greek Isles. Now you're ready for your Mediterranean adventure to begin!
Start with the Saganaki cheese which is flamed right at your table. And if it's your first venture to the ancient lands, a safe and divine choice would one of their combination platters. These dishes include any of the following scrumptious items: tender chicken kabobs, DELICIOUS greek sausage, savory lamb, Moussaka, boiled potatoes, creamy tzatziki sauce, grilled veggies, rice, and Patsitsio. For the seasoned Greek eater (and what tasty seasonings they are!), Zorba's has a selection ranging from traditional down to the simple and always mouth-watering gyro pita. One of the traditional dishes worth trying is the Moussaka or Pastisio, a Greek version of lasagna. However, if you're really wanting a unique taste of Greece, then try the boiled octopus, a ubiquitous and standard menu option direct from the streets of Santorini and the other islands. Athens is calling and if you can't afford to fly by Hermes' wings or convince Poseidon to help you cross the ocean, then head to Zorba's and enjoy the next best thing!
Zorba's is a delectable Greek dining treasure for the Dallas community! This is an authentic homegrown spot that you'd be sorry to miss the boat on. If you get a chance, strike up a conversation with your waiter because many hail from the Mother country. Zorba's slogan is "Tell your best friends only" and it's true, only the best deserve to know about this amazing place! And for the love of Aphrodite, get dessert!
LYD says: If you are experiencing Greek cuisine for the first time ask the waiter to walk you through the menu. Always ask for an explanation and try something new! FYI, Zorba's is BYOB, so grab your favorite bottle of wine (or 3) and bring your best friends only!
Bon Appetit Y'all!
