Demo’s Greek Food

The original Demo’s is, appropriately enough, across the street from the Greek Orthodox church. Mediterranean murals and a pantheon of dishes characterize this long-lived cafe, which is justly famous for its gyros, fries, and hearty Greek salads. Stick to the casual pita-wrapped meats or step up to souvlaki or creamy pastichio, but do leave room for sticky honey-nut baklava. You’ll also find house-made hummus, salty tarama, and crisp-fried falafel with tangy tzatziki. College students, downtown workers, and neighborhood families have been dining at Demo’s since 1979 (before that the family owners cooked at Greek festivals), and everyone gets the same order-at-the-counter question: “Fries with that?” Just say yes. Expect a short wait during busy lunch hours, but, either inside or on the patio, you’ll almost get a whiff of Homer’s wine-dark sea—or at least grilled meat.
