A hidden gem. I love Greek food and stumbled upon this place. So glad I gave it a try. The decor screams Greece and is very bright and inviting. The customer service is excellent and the food ia fresh and tastes authentic.
Ordered takeout to be served at noon the next day. Chris made some suggestions, we agreed and it was great. Everyone enjoyed the food even our main greek guest. Thanks Chris!!
A very impressive, immaculately clean Greek "fast" food restaurant with wonderful ambiance. I can only echo the positive reviews already entered for this restaurant. The young woman who took my order was efficient, friendly and knew what she was doing. Without exception, EVERYTHING I tried was flavorful and fresh. If you're looking for, or want to try, quality Greek food where there's something for everyone on the menu, this is the place. Healthy food can really be delicious! Packed very well to go, the gigantes and sauce were seasoned perfectly, the avgolemono soup was out of this world good, the souvlaki was packed full of chicken and pork (no skimping here), the lemon potatoes are among the best I've ever eaten, fried cheeseballs were very tasty with spicy feta dip, but for me, the star of mthe meal was the strained yogurt with sour cherries and honey. I would come back just for that. I live near a couple of similar restaurants in Fairfield County, but I will make the drive to Hamden for Freskos whenever I'm craving Greek food again because their food is so much better than anywhere else I've tried.
Small salad with chicken was large and very delicious.
We just left this exceptionally delightful restaurant! Authentic Greek food, clean, bright surroundings and friendly, knowledgeable staff- perfect! For those traveling on CT 15 north.... (Hamden) Skip the 'fast food' places! Freskos is just off the highway, very easy parking and they make GREAT food...fast! Oh, and the music is wonderful too!
Amazing quality food, yummy lemon potatoes & flavorful chicken!
Food was delicious, staff gracious & did a little Greek dancing with the owner. Peter…opa!
I am so impressed by the food here! I loved every thing I tried and wouldn't have changed a thing about my meal! I had: Chicken Souvlaki: chicken was tender and marinated to perfection Lemon Potatoes: the best I've ever had! Greek Fries: Shoe thing fries perfectly done and topped with small pieces of feta, that was a plus! Galaktoboureko: a big hit in my house!
Found this adorable eatery thanks to my Yelp Family! Great food, service & aesthetics. Bright, clean & spacious spot. They also have an outdoor patio for dining. My hubby got the Horiatiki Salad with grilled chicken ($14) & Greek yogurt with honey & figs ($5). I got the traditional gyro ($8.99) & we tried the chilled watermelon soup, which we did not care for. I think it had fresh oregano in it, which I didn't like. The rest of the food was delicious & fresh. A bit pricey, but worth the quality & large portions. Their loukomades ($5.99 for 6) were amazing! You have to ask for them they no longer have them on the menu. Best rice pudding! Rich & creamy! Chris was very welcoming & friendly. You g lady at the counter was very nice & answered all my questions happily. We would definitely return next time we're out this way!
Great juicy souvlaki, I always like searching for great Greek food locations and this is a little cute hidden place behind Mickey's, they have a cute outdoor seating with Greek music playing, makes you feel like you really are hanging out in Greece.
This place is totally awesome, I knew it existed in Hamden for a while and I finally took the dive and stopped by today. My goodness my food was so fresh and divine. I got the classic gyro, the meat was well seasoned, the onions, tomatoes and dill were fresh and the pita was so fluffy and delicious. I also got the Greek style fries and they were so good! The lemon seasoning and feta made it so hard to not eat them all on the car ride home. The inside is super cute, nice and clean, and their staff is extremely friendly and helpful. I'm already trying to figure out what I want to get next time I'm there!
I like it! Nice gyros and a very nice Greek salad, I’ll be back
Had the pork souvlaki and it was everything I had hoped it could be — warm, juicy meat and impeccable spices.This sandwich is one of my all-time favorites, and is something I’d been unable to find anywhere in years! Had to bring my dog to Central Hospital nearby, though, and needed a bite to eat before driving back to work in Farmington... and, boy, am I glad I checked Google Maps and saw this place!The souvlaki and the baklava (couldn’t resist) were delicious. Looking forward to trying the avgolemono soup.Now, FRESKOS is part of the itinerary every time my dog & I are nearby again for her vet rechecks every month or so ? (and I booked her next one a little closer to lunchtime) ?
Amazing gyro pita sandwich. Chris, the gentleman behind the counter, was super helpful. Highly recommend Freskos!
Best spot in Hamden! Love their gyros and service is always great. I would highly suggest coming here if you are a Quinnipiac student. They have weekly promotions and everything on the menu is great!
