Greeks Pizzeria moved into the East Side of Evansville over one year ago, but I still don’t think to eat there very often. Not because the food is bad or the service rude and certainly not because of the location, but it’s just not at the top of my eat-out choices. Monday night I met with some friends and I realized why.
First of all there is no atmosphere, where other Greeks Pizzeria locations seem to have flavor, a buzz, a reason to want to be there. Every time I go into the Evansville Greeks I half way expect to see batteries on the wall, thanks to the previous tenant.
Next, it took forever to get our food. This becomes less of a problem when there is atmosphere to enjoy, but with a lack of entertainment and general frivolity I was left staring at my watch. It took 1 hour to get our food after ordering. This is waaaaaaay too long, especially without an explanation.
Once I did receive my food it was hot, tasty, and sat just fine on top of the adult beverages I had consumed while waiting. In my opinion Greeks is good, not great, so it seems to live in a restaurant-choosing purgatory. Greeks Pizzeria’s are independently owned, but is there a reason Evansville is still not listed on the official website?
