Opa Greek Restaurant, Islip, NY
Rob had one of his favorite dinners, the Loukaniko Dinner, which consists of grilled smoked sausage seasoned with with orange rind and cinnamon and served over a bed of delicious rice pilaf.
Susan had her favorite Gyro Dinner with slices of chopped lamb, beef, herbs and spices which is also served over a bed of rice pilaf.
These entrees are always served with a greek salad, pita bread and tzatziki sauce, which is a seasoned yogurt sauce. You can also try their homemade onion sauce to go with either dinner.
Now the specials are something else again. Different specials are served here every night and include soup, salad, coffee, tea and homemade rice pudding which is simply out of this world.
The restaurant is spacious and inviting. This is the back room of the restaurant where we usually end up. Notice the blue light above which gives you the feeling of eating outdoors under a lovely blue sky.
In fact, the seat with the menus and the silverware is our table.
The picture below is the front room. Each room has a high definition television, with a different show every night and always reflects the day's happenings. Talk about being in your own living room.
So if you're local or if you happen to be hanging around Suffolk County in the Islip area, follow directions which are included in the link at the bottom of this blog. Also check out their extensive menu, which includes pricing. As I said, you won't be disappointed in the service or the amazing dinners and low prices of this great restaurant. Remember the name, it's Opa Greek Restaurant in Islip.
