The Best Greek Restaurants in Chicago

There is no shortage of fun to be had in The Windy City. It's a cosmopolitan place with a small-town feel - where else can you enjoy a day at the beach, a hike on the 606 urban hiking trail, live comedy and world-class art, all without breaking your budget? The city is also known for its culinary treasures. It gets a lot of hype for hot dogs, deep dish pizza and Italian beef sandwiches, but Chicago also has plenty of amazing Greek food spots if you know where to go. We've asked the savviest foodies in the nation where they are going these days, and we put together this list of the best Greek restaurants in Chicago. Grab a table and enjoy!
