El Greco Grill

5420 Lawndale St. Houston, TX 77023 | East End | 832-582-7918

Location Description:

This hybrid Greek restaurant/panaderia offers a cuisine not often found in Houston's heavily Hispanic East End. One side of the giant strip center that houses El Greco is a nicer-than-normal panaderia with cafe tables and chairs, while the other side offers homemade Greek food from owner Anestis Papadopoulos, who once owned an auto parts shop down the street. His pita bread is as good as his pastries, and his pastichio comes topped with a thick, fluffy mantle of nutmeg-warmed béchamel sauce. Gyro meat can occasionally be tough, but El Greco's strong Greek coffee will help overcome one of the rare poor meals here.
