An Unforgettable Greek Lunch at Yeero Village Was Like Visiting Santorini in Roswell


Driving by Yeero Village in Northeast Cobb County on the way to an early afternoon appointment, we stopped in for lunch at Yeero Village, a family-owned restaurant which is part of the Marietta Family Restaurants group owned by local entrepreneur Gus Tselios.

For us, this was an unusual decision as Greek food isn't in our regular restaurant rotation. Yes, we had tried Greek food before, including on a cruise with a three island trip in Greece that included Santorini. But there just aren't lots of Greek options nearby.

Yeero Village was the perfect place to break our cycle of neglect of Greek cuisine. The fast casual dining concept had a large and detailed menu. The friendly staff happily answered our questions and sharing their favorite items. And the wide variety of menu options allowed us to sample multiple dishes that were suggested by the staff.

When our platters arrived, we knew immediately we had ordered too much. But that was perfect for our tasting adventure . As to what we enjoyed while visions of Santorini danced in our heads, here's the summary:

  • Pita and hummus, a perfect appetizer, sized for sharing, with a chickpea-based and sesame dip.
  • Greek salads, heaping helpings with lettuce, tomatoes, red onions and olives, plus a tasty homemade dressing with a wonderful hint of lemon.
  • Beef and lamb gyros, meats perfectly roasted on a rotating spit, wrapped in fully grilled pita, and surrounded by tomatoes, onions tzatziki sauce,
  • Chicken souvlaki, bite-sized morsels of chicken grilled on a skewer, and moistly basted in a seasoning sauce.
  • Greek potatoes, or as I now refer to them, perfect potatoes from heaven. So good that words fail to describe them, so just get some yourself!

The plentiful leftovers made for easy carryout -- as it turned out, enough for two-plus additional take home meals.

You'll find Yeero Village at 4751 Sandy Springs Rd in Roswell.
