I visited this restaurant while in Houston for a conference. This restaurant was close to my hotel and had excellent reviews. My experience was no exception -- so fresh and absolutely delicious!!!!! I might have to come back before I head home.

Warm, friendly, welcome. We were a party of 7 and there was no problem once tables had been rearranged to accommodate us. Varied menu to suit most tastes. Food was well presented and served in a timely fashion. Good choice of wines, beers and cocktails. Great atmosphere. Worth making a reservation, we were lucky that they were able to accommodate...

We just landed in Houston, checked in at Royal Sonesta and then took a walk down the street to enjoy a delicious meal at Yia Yia Mary's Greek Kitchen. Good food, large portions and at a reasonable price. Would recommend this for anyone.

I ate here my my family of four. My wife could not eat the salmon as it was filled with butter and salt. My sons found the chicken very bland and over salted. I had the lamb and beef dish. The lamb was tasteless but I can saw that the rotisserie beef was good. Not really Greek food and definitely... More

We have been eating at Pappas family restaurants for decades.normally the service and food is top quality. This restaurant fell way short of that. The waiter did not know the menu and his demeanor was similar to a wet rag. The sandwich had cubed beef that was un chewable. I sent pieces to the manager but he never came,probably bc... More

We were in an awe. Everything we ordered tingled our taste buds although was a bit heavy but it didn't matter because the taste was beyond amazing. We ordered the lamb chops, the vine leaves with lemon rice, mossaka, and the seafood yivountis then had the baklava for dessert. All of them were perfect! A bit pricey but soooo worth... More

Great for airport food, but not cheap at $16. Samantha gave me service with a smile, which made it better. They had run low on sides, but what I got was good. The pita bread was flat and dry though
