Maria’s Greek Restaurant (Coral Gables)
***** Maria’s Greek Restaurant, 2359 Coral Way, Coral Gables, Florida 33145, (305) 856-0938.
Got a really good…casual, reasonably priced, Greek joint for you…Maria’s Greek Restaurant in Coral Gables.
First, let me get a few important things out of the way …delicious-hummus, pita bread, gyro, souvlaki, grilled lamb chops, Greek salad, roast chicken…terrific-friendly “mom & pop” service. The joint seats about 65 people and the folks in the kitchen don’t “over lemon” everything in sight.
You can check menu/prices at www.urbanspoon.com.
Now for the nonsense…the joint’s decor (in a good way)- looks like a seedy version of Rick’s Cafe. All night, I was expecting Humphrey Bogart to come rolling in (yes! I know he’s dead).
Maria’s is a winner. One of the better South Florida Greek joints that I’ve eaten in.
Maria’s is open Monday-Friday 11am-10pm, Saturday 5pm-10pm. The joint is closed on Sunday.
