Yanni's Greek Restaurant

5425 Landmark Place Englewood, CO 80111 | Southeast Denver Suburbs | 303-692-0404

Location Description:

When the wind is right, when owner Yanni Stavropoulos has the outdoor rotisserie grill fired up, the odor of roasting meat and garlic and wine will draw you from a mile away. Outside Yanni's, you'll see Stavropoulos standing over that grill like some kind of minor laughing spirit from an expurgated chapter of the Iliad -- the Lamb God, bringer of barbecue -- and you'll understand at a very basic, gut level why Greek food is so good. Yanni's offers all the standards -- dolmades, gyros, tzatziki, souvlaki -- and while the lunch menu is decent, the lamb dishes at dinner are the best.
