George Fronimakis is from Crete, and he has brought part of his beautiful home, the largest Greek island, to Tucson at his restaurant. It is a Minoan palace, with art and the famous bull from Crete. Specialties here are moussaka and pastitsio, but there are many choices, including the American-Greek staples: gyros and souvlaki, plus Greek or regular hamburgers and falafel. Open for lunch and dinner seven days a week, with apologies to Melina Mercouri. Service is fast--order at the counter, and food is delivered to your table--and the food is extremely affordable. Greek and Cypriot beer and an expanded Greek wine list are offered, with baklava and kataifeh for dessert.
