Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

My Big Fat Greek Cafe, a joint where gyros and green chile -- and gyros smothered with green chile -- shared space on the menu with big, fat Greek burgers, Greek salads and a strip steak for the bargain price of $6.99, has closed on South Broadway after its owner returned to his land of inspiration: Greece.

The space, which is currently under construction, will become the Recipe Box, a "fresh prepared foods market for the gourmet on the go," according to the new signage. I wish them luck, but isn't the "We prep, you cook" concept so ten years ago?

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
