Ekko's Greek American Grill and Deli
Any restaurant inside a gas station is always going to get our attention. Near the Galleria lies some of the best Greek fast food around. Step in line at Ekko's (5216 Richmond) and order off of the 45-item menu -- there's dolmades, burgers, hot dogs, gyros, kabobs, you name it. We had a hard time choosing between the gyro burger and the New York hot dog, finally deciding on an awesome dog with crispy caramelized onions, sauerkraut and mustard. There was a line out the door.
Really, where else can you get a gyro, a tank of gas and a pack of Benson and Hedges, all at once? When you're in line waiting for your meal, you'll forget you are in a gas station. We dined al fresco with the Beamers and Mercedes.
