There are no other Greek eateries in La Grande, and probably not for almost 200 miles in either direction, which makes this place extra special. Even though there is no indoor seating, if you are prepared to just eat outside on a nice day, eat in your car, or take the food home or to a park, you shouldn't be... More

Good food, tiny place. Only outside seating or take out. But worth the stop. Look for tiny blue building across from Safeway.

(The place has had an update from the only picture on here) Amazing gyro and baklava. We were considering taking our friends to a sit down restaurant to visit but ended up here. We took It to a nearby park and it was perfect. Food is wonderful and very friendly customer service!

Never disappoints, friendly fun service. I always get the Spanakopita or the similar dish made with sweet potatoes.

We took a quick stop off the interstate for lunch. It is an easy on off. It is off the main road in a bright blue building just east of the Safeway. The restaurant does not have inside seating but does have a small clean outside area and a drive through. That is the only reason to not give four... More

With the previous owners the food wasn't that good. But with the new owners all that has changed. Very friendly atmosphere, and the Gyro and fries were very good. I will definitely be going here on a weekly basis now. The gyro platter is also fantastic. Glad to have this place back!

Random to find such good Greek food in a tiny eastern Oregon town! The gyro is delicious, with soft pita and flavorful meat. I also enjoyed the Greek salad. Baklava is worth getting, more moist than most I've tried. There isn't a lot of seating, so your best bet is to drive through and eat your food elsewhere.

We were totally delighted with this little spot. We didn't even mind dining in the car as this is a drive through. I'm going meatless for a bit and the Falafel Pita with the Greek salad on the side totally delivered. Great guys running the place as well.

We were on a road trip and stayed in La Grande for one night. We knew we would be tired and hungry and did some research ahead of time. Read somegood reviews about this little authentic Greek place Yia Yia Nikki's. The owner was delightful and we thoroughly enjoyed our take-out dinner and dessert! (The baklava was still warm out...
