Chef Zorba's Greek Restaurant

2626 E. 12th Ave. Denver, CO 80206 | Central Denver | 303-321-0091

Location Description:

Greek restaurants pepper the stretch of Colfax known as Greek Town, but Chef Zorba's resides just off Denver's favorite street on a calm and tree-shaded block of Congress Park. Neighbors have been strolling to Chef Zorba's since 1978. An ownership change about fifteen years ago brought an expanded and remodeled dining room, but the traditional dishes stayed. Among pages of American diner items -- omelettes, burgers, green chile cheese fries -- there's a solid mass of recognizable standards, along with a few surprises. Loukaniko sausage and a variety of souvlakis top the menu, but there are plenty of Greek favorites to choose from.
