D'Nicio's Parlour, Kalamazoo, MI

D'Nicio's Parlour in Kalamazoo represents one of Kalamazoo's best Greek restaurants, which is quite a feat in a town that's got several such entities. D'Nicio's starts with some of the best in American fare—burgers, ice cream and koney dogs—but steps it up to the ever-popular gyro and other Greek specialties like mousaka, pastitsio, and even soganaki. So whether you're looking for something new, familiar, or even familiar done a whole new way, D'Nicio's is waiting for you.

Pegasus Tavernas, Detroit and St. Clair Shores, MI

Pegasus Tavernas has a unique claim to fame: it was there back when “Greektown” used to be called “Trapper's Alley.” It's been in place for nearly a quarter of a century, delivering some of the best Greek food around. Saganaki, scordalia, taramosalata, dolmathes, and more line the menu here, and there's plenty more besides featuring chicken, beef, lamb, veal and more. Even the desserts are heavily Greek-influenced, like rizogalo, loukoumades, and even pagoto, which is basically just ice cream.

Estia, Troy and Warren, MI

Estia—with locations in Troy and Warren—features “Greek street food,” offering up pitas and bowls for those who want Greek food fast. A lot of this is actually build-your-own style, where you pick how it's presented, what the meat is, and any extras you'd like. Throw in some soups and sides, a little dessert, and you're ready to go. Best of all, there's a GrubHub connection so you can even get it delivered when you don't want to go out.

KouZina Greek Street Food, Ann Arbor and Royal Oak, MI

KouZina, with locations in Ann Arbor and Royal Oak, delivers its own particular brand of Greek street food. Greek salad, gyros in both bowl and pita, and even some bougatsa for dessert, the end result is a fast, friendly Greek experience that should leave everyone happy.

Greek Pantheon Restaurant, Clinton Township and Sterling Heights, MI

With locations in Sterling Heights and Clinton Township, Greek Pantheon Restaurant has been around since 2004. A truly family-style affair—it promises dishes “made to eat, not admire”—it even promises the best chicken lemon rice soup around. With a new menu in place, including lamb shank, gyros, stuffed grape leaves, mousakka and plenty more, it's going to give you a taste of authentic Greek fare served with plenty of Greek flair.

Theo & Stacy's, Kalamazoo and Portage, MI

The best family restaurant in the area, Theo & Stacy's is the other major Greek restaurant Kalamazoo can offer. In the mood for stuffed grape leaves? How about baked lamb shank? Mousaka? Kabob? Pastitsio? That's just some of the Greek food on hand here, and that's only where Theo & Stacy's starts. Oh, and they're also widely known for their gyros, topped with homemade Tzatziki sauce.

The Auburn Café, Ecorse, MI

Ecorse's The Auburn Cafe offers up a comparatively unique entry for us to consider: Greek tavern-style food. If the thought of eating bar food leaves you a little cold, then wait until you see what's available on the Featuring several familiar dishes like saganaki, gyros, and the avgolemono—lemon rice soup—you'll find plenty to eat here as well. With dine-in, pick-up and delivery options all on hand, you'll even be able to have that Greek tavern food just the way you like it.

Zorba's Greek Cuisine, Saginaw, MI

Zorba's Greek Cuisine will be a big surprise largely due to its location. You'll find this little surprise in, of all places, Saginaw. Several have already suggested that this place be featured in Food Network staple “Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives” for its looks, but there's a lot more here than meets the eye. Home to gyros, Grecian potatoes, souvlaki, baklava and several other options, you'll hardly believe that you've found Greek food in Saginaw. But there it is.

Spargo's Coney Island, Auburn Hills, MI

The phrase “Greek diner” may sound like a bit of a contradiction, or perhaps just a big non sequitur, but Auburn Hills' Spargo's will deliver on that unusual premise with a will. When even breakfast gets a little Greek—like the gyro omelette and the Greek equivalent—you know you're in for something unusual. But toss it up a bit with kabobs, gyros, spanakopita and several other options, and you've got the potential for Greek fare morning, noon and night.
