Theo's Greek Cafe

Restaurant:  Theo's Greek Cafe
Location:  9197 Central Ave, Ste J, Montclair, CA 91763
Like/Don't Like:  Two words:  Greek Salad

I'm just going to give you the heads up right now.  You need to order the greek salad.  It is just iceberg lettuce, a couple tomatoes, a few slivers of bell peppers, cucumbers, loads of feta, and one kalamata olive.  But the dressing is made with one part olive oil and two parts magic.  It's sweet and tangy and I was tempted to slurp up what was left in the bottom of the plate.

Okay, now that I've done that service, on to the rest of the food.  Which was all great.  We split a lamb gyro and a chicken souvlaki.  Both were delicious.  The rice they came with was the only mediocre thing we had.  It was super colorful but it didn't have much flavor.  We also got some fries covered in feta, which is genius. 

The service was great - maybe because we were the only ones in there.  The new owner, Johnny, took care of us, told us about the history of the place and all of his plans.  There's a lot of American food on the menu and he's planning on making it more Greek, which I think it wise.  I'd like to try their sandwiches the next time because they sound pretty good.  As long as there is room after my salad.
