First bites: The Fat Greek

My Big Fat Greek Dinner only consisted of a salad, but oh, what a salad it was!

I ordered a falafel salad, which consisted of greens, thin-sliced cucumber, onion, tomato, Kalamata olives, feta cheese, oregano and, of course, sliced falafel. It came with a delicious, but not overpowering, lemony Greek dressing and lemon slices. It was also accompanied by a pepperocini and some warm pita bread slices.

It was the most flavorful salad I’ve had in a very long time.

My dining companion had a pastrami sandwich that was big enough for two meals, and we split an order of house-made onion rings.

Everything was delicious, and the customer service was fantastic.

Even though it was our first time there, Nick and company made us feel like we were longtime customers.

Of course, Dine 909 has company in enjoying the food at the Fat Greek. Sometimes it takes us a while to get with the program, though.

Unfortunately, we were too full to try one of the delicious-looking desserts. Perhaps next time, which I’m sure will be very soon.

The Fat Greek is at 33265 Yucaipa Blvd. in Yucaipa. Their website contains a wealth of information, including a full menu (exactly the same as in the restaurant), coupons and a mouth-watering photo gallery.
