01/21/2016Taziki’s Mediterranean Cafe
If McDonald's did it like this, I might be a chain restaurant fan. I was a little reluctant the first time I encountered a Taziki's. Chain Mediterranean food? My only prior experience was with the horrible chain Greek place in the Chicago airport where I immediate food poisoning.Anyway, back to the relevant facts. Taziki's is DELICIOUS. Fresh, relatively healthy, well-priced, and with plenty of gluten-free options. Back in my younger, care-free gluten-eating days, I was a giant fan of the chicken gyro; now that I am older and digestively weaker, I tend to lean towards their grilled chicken, which is always well-seasoned and tender. I am also a huge fan of their rice, which is slightly, but not overly, lemon-seasoned. It's not traditional, incredible Greek food, but it is a fast and cheap way to get fresh and nutritionally sound food. There is a patio, there is fast service, and there is baklava; what more could a person want?
