Taziki's Mediterrian Cafe

It's finally open and although Mediterranean style food wasn't one of my favorites I did want to give it a try and I'm glad I did.  I still don't care too much for Hummus but the grilled Chicken and the Grilled Shrimp was spectacularly good and tasty coming on a bed of balsamic rice.  I plan on going back and trying the wraps and the gyros but Taziki's is a great addition to the area and provides a source of Greek flavored food to go along with the ample selections of Mexican and Italian selections in the area.

For those not familiar with Taziki's I'll post a URL link to their menu.

Lamb is one meat that I've never ate.   Other than the standard patented, or trademarked, line "it taste like Chicken" which I'm sure it doesn't taste anything like it, what does Lamb taste like?   Does it have a strong game type taste?

May as well make my first post on here in the food forum.  Ate at Taziki's yesterday mid afternoon.  Had the lamb gyro with pasta salad and roasted potatoes. The lamb didn't seem strong tasting to me.  It was all very good for $9.95+ an arm and a leg for a drink. $14 and change total. Kinda high for one person. The other food I saw others eating looked equally good.

The downside (to me).  Bistro style place with deli style ordering at the counter. No table service. The place had a "downtown" and a college student vibe. Most of the clientele were snowflake types.  Maybe Cox Creek Blvd is not the best location for an eatery such as this. This ol country boy never really felt comfortable.  I will go back because of the good food, but will use the drive-up window.

Brief introduction: Over sixty, white male, native Southerner, small business owner, Mason and a member of the SCV. In other words, part of the most hated demographic in the country. And I couldn't be happier.

Well I returned and ordered the Grilled Chicken but I'm thinking that the Grilled shrimp is a better choice.   One thing seems constant though and that is that the number of people trying it is remaining constant as they remain quite busy and it's tough finding a parking place.  I'm glad though, I like seeing a new place doing well.

You need to add NRA.

Looks like your first, and so far last, post was an unpaid ad for a restaurant. Owner maybe?

Actually, that's where the GBRK comes from GBRK  Me+Her even though I'm the only one that post on the forum.  Actually, she's a great cook when we ever eat at home, which isn't that often now that the kids are gone.  

And yes, NRA and concealed carry. - KThom
