We drove into Tarpon Springs tonight and ended up at Chloe’s Family Restaurant for dinner. There were quite a few people in the restaurant and we quickly found out why… the food was really good.
I started off with a Greek salad which came with my entree.
It had a nice, tangy dressing on it. Then they brought out fresh bread.
This just oozed awesomeness. Fresh and hot out of the oven covered in a buttery garlic sauce. It was so soft and delicious. I’d go back just for the bread. Loren got the Greek Keftedakia which came with a salad and fries.
The salad didn’t have any lettuce and when we asked about it, our waitress said it was called a village salad. Who knew? But, she was nice enough to bring out a side dish of lettuce for us non-Greeks. The meatballs were flavorful and there was enough for leftovers. I ordered the Greek combo plate since I like to try out lots of things when we go to a new restaurant.
It came with pastitsio, moussaka, gyro, chicken and spinach pie. I really liked the pastitsio. Normally, that’s what I would have ordered and I’d have been happy with a big ol’ plate of it. It was moist with just the right Greek flavors. The moussaka was also really flavorful & tasty. The spinach pie was also pretty good. Flaky with a nice filling. I tried both the gyro & chicken and ended up taking most of it home for leftovers. The gyro was good, but the chicken was dry.
And then as a nice surprise at the end of the meal, the waitress brought out complimentary bowls of ice cream.
A perfect finish to an awesome dinner. Everything was fresh and homemade. Service was really good and everyone was very friendly. Definitely putting on our list to try again. We’ve been having some really good luck with restaurants in Tarpon Springs lately. Total bill with a drink was $32.
