Greko Greek Street Food is in the process of putting on the finishing touches before its official public opening this Friday. And based on the opening menus, it’s giving Nashville the Greek restaurant it has been needing for quite some time.

Cousins and owners Bill and Tony Darsinos have enlisted longtime local chef Sal Avila to help bring their vision to life. The menu is deceptively simple, offering souvlaki (skewered meats and vegetables grilled over an open flame), a variety of pita including lamb and grilled vegetables, soups and salads. Two brews on tap and four Greek wines, along with a few non-alcoholic options, round things out. And the price point? Most items range from $6 to $10, with the Korinthian lamb topping out at $15.

Hours for opening weekend will be abbreviated, with dinner service only on Friday and Saturday from 4 to 11 p.m. and lunch service only on Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Regular service hours of 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday will begin on Monday, June 26.
