Acropolis Cuisine in New Orleans, LA

Acropolis Cuisine
3841 Veterans Memorial Blvd
Metairie, LA

This Greek restaurant kinda sticks out among the fast food chains that neighbor it, so a friend and I thought we’d stop by and check out the food. When we talked to the woman behind the cash register, we were pretty sure we were going to get some delicious authentic Greek food (even with some of the questionable items on the menu, such as lasagna and garlic bread? isn’t that Italian??)

We decided to eat here for lunch when we realized almost all the selections were the same at dinner time except almost half the price at lunch.
My friend had the moussaka; thin layers of eggplant, zucchini, and Idaho potatoes sautéed in extra virgin olive oil, ground veal simmered in herbs and spices and baked to perfection. It was delicious and you couldn’t tell there was ground veal in it. I loved how the eggplant flavor was really enhanced by the herbs, spices and olive oil. This was definitely winner of the meal!

i had the gyro wrap with seasoned beef and lamb, thin sliced and dressed with lettuce, onions and tzatziki sauce. I’m a sucker for tzatziki sauce. The lamb meat was nice and tender and delicious with the tzatziki sauce. The french fries were seasoned with a similar spice as the moussaka (aka awesome!)
