Without doubt one of the best, if not the best, restaurant. deli and take out for Greek cuisine. No pretense or wannabees among the customers here, and no tourists on parade. Just honest hardworking folk who know and appreciate value when they see it. Try the lamb gyro sandwich for $8.99. It's gotta be the best in L.A.

This spot has 2 major key attributes. Parking & seating. We came during lunch hour and easily ordered and got our food quickly. I got the chicken kabob pizza. It was super good. Lots of flavor. This was my first time visiting. I think that'd be a good one for a first timer. Also got the Papa Cristo root beer.... More

If you want to eat the best authentic Greek food in Southern California, this is the place to go. Prices are low, quantities are huge, and the atmosphere is real. There is also a great selection of Greek meats, cheeses, frozen dinners, oil, wine, and other deli items. You order at the counter, and the food is brought to your... More

We knew we were in for a treat when we saw the large Greek Orthodox Church and school complex. Papa Christos is across the street. Ordering is via the deli takeaway counter but the dining room is very spacious, comfortable and welcoming. The menu is wonderful and servings are generous. We had the chicken kebabs which came with a Greek... More

The meats had been marinated well and were very tender and succulent. The potatoes, oh the potatoes! Those were out of this... More

Very casual setting with excellent food- you can never go wrong with some great olive filled salads with lettuce/tomato/cheese viniagrette, lamb chops, kebobs, gyros, and pita breads. Everything that we've ordered at Papa Cristo's always met or exceeded expectations and enormous! The service was always warm, welcoming, and fast! It is true, you must come to appreciate the bounty.

This wonderful Greek deli and restaurant is as authentic as it could be!! The food is traditional Greek, think moussaka, lamb, hummus, etc. It's fresh and delicious. The prices are very reasonable. It's a casual atmosphere with order in or order out choices. Lots of parking in the back.

Went here based on the reviews we read. Well...very disappointed. Can't believe people think this is great Greek food. We are from Chicago, and Papa Cristos can't compare to our great Greek restaurants in Chicago. The menu was more of a "fast food" kind. We had the "greens" and it was cold like a salad. We asked someone to heat... More

I did not eat in the restaurant but had the food as take-out. Delicious! The lamb chops were wonderfully seasoned and tender. The gyros were some of the best ever. Loved the lemon potatoes. Falafel was a bit dry and hummus runny. Baba ganouch was excellent.The warm pita was very good. Definitely would get food from there again.
