Taki’s Serves Souvlaki With a Side of Fun

February 28, 2017

NEW YORK – Greek diners are a dime a dozen in Western New York, but Taki’s serves its souvlaki with a side of witty repartee, Buffalo News reports.

The two-level dining room is adorned with posters like this one signed by Pandora: “I adore getting Taki’s Takeout – They always put my food in a box.” Then there’s the confession from Poseidon: “Don’t tell anybody, but I absolutely love Takis’ fish fry.” As for Achilles, he’s got a weakness for the gyro and feta omelette. The food is standard, but if you’re looking for lunch in downtown Buffalo, it’s a great choice.

Taki’s downtown eatery is located on Court street between Franklin & Pearl. Dine in or take out. Breakfast and lunch served all day.

Everything on Taki’s menu is under $9, so it’s an affordable weekday stop. The kitchen opens 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday, and its location on Court Street makes it popular with the lunch crowd. It serves its sizable breakfast menu all day for those hankerin’ for an omelette at noon.

Taki’s is famous for the Chicken Souvlaki. Homemade soups are served daily with a variety of specials. “Try our Chicken finger melt:, Taki’s webpage recommends.
