Never been to Maria’s Taverna but a buddy’s been a few times and likes their lamb shoulder. They’ve been around since 1987 and you’ll find them next door to Raisu.
Hours. Open everyday till 10:00pm.
We dropped in on a Thursday (around 1:00pm). It wasn’t busy so we were able to grab a table right out front to people watch. Service was friendly and our waitress dropped off a jug of water for the table.
The menu consists of soups, salads, cold/hot appetizers, entrees, souvlakia, seafood, platters for two, pizza and pasta.
To whet our appetites, they brought out a complimentary basket of bread.
Lamb shoulder with Greek salad, rice, roasted potatoes and tzatziki. Lamb shoulder came off the bone but wasn’t the tenderest. Roasted potatoes had a nice acidity from the lemon. Tzatziki sauce and rice were solid. Only thing I didn’t enjoy on the plate was the Greek salad.
Paithakia skaras ($28.99)
Four lamb chops with Greek salad, rice and roasted potatoes. Lamb chops were excellently cooked. Well seasoned with a great bite. For the price, wish they gave a little more rice and potatoes on the plate.
Decent Greek eats at MT.
