Enjoy Authenic Greek Cuisine

Food is the main attraction at the Yiasou Festival. Greek cuisine dates back thousands of years and is part of the history and culture of Greece. Mediterranean foods are not only delicious but are known to be part of a healthy lifestyle. Fresh vegetables, olive oil, grains, fish, wine, cheese, and meat – lamb, chicken and pork are commonly used in Greek cooking. Desserts are mostly made of nuts, honey, fruits, and phyllo pastry.

Dining Options

You can get full meals inside the Father C Hall or get a la carte items under our food tents outside. Additionally, you can place a take out order or pick up at our drive thru.

Full Sit Down Meal – Inside the hall, we offer baked chicken, lamb and Pastichio combination plates which include Spanakopita, Dolmada, and a side salad. We also have a large Greek salad plate. Drinks are included with the full plated meals.

A La Carte – Outside in our tents, you can get Gyro or Chicken Pita sandwiches, French Fries, Pizza, Spanakopita, Tiropita, and more. Also available outside are soft drinks, water, beer and wine.

Drive-Thru – Don’t have time to stop in? Drive up for your favorite Greek specialties on the corner of East Worthington and Winthrop avenues. Follow directional signs during the Festival. Combination dinner plates, pita sandwiches and assorted pastry boxes are available. For faster service, print and complete the drive-thru menu and present it to the drive-thru attendant.

Homemade Pastries

The Greek people are known for their amazing pastries. Pastries are available under the dessert tent, at inside dining and at drive-thru. From homemade baklava to galaktoboureko and koulouria, you’ll want to save room for dessert! Here are some of our most popular:

Baklava – A popular, rich, sweet pastry made with layers of phyllo, sweetened and held together with syrup, and filled with chopped nuts.

Baklava Sundaes – Worlds collide as the traditional Greek phyllo, honey and nut concoction is paired with vanilla ice cream. They are famous for a reason!

Loukoumades – These popular Greek doughnuts are served warm, drizzled with honey and sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar. Grab a box and eat like a champion – according to the poet Callimachus, treats very similar to loukoumades were served to the winners of the ancient Greek Olympics.
