It is a Sunday afternoon and we are in Martinez, California watching a play. The play ends and we are hungry. Troy Greek Cuisine is a block away and it sounds inviting. Greek Cuisine will be a new experience for us. Parking karma is not needed today because we are already parked and will brave the full block walk from the theater.

Troy Greek Cuisine is a small chain restaurant with four other locations. It is a warm feeling restaurant with an open kitchen. There is a heated outdoor seating area which was full of families enjoying their meals. We choose indoor seating and are greeted immediately. We started our meal with an appetizer of Spanakopita. These are spinach and feta cheese wrapped in filo dough and deep fried. They are served with a tratziki  yogurt type sauce. They are fine tasting that are not high on the wow factor. They do get our interest and taste buds ready for the main course.

Beef Souvalki sounds like a safe choice for me. Charbroiled rib-eye steak on a skewer served with vegetables, rice or salad and a tratziki sauce is perfectly satisfying. Once again this plate was perfectly fine but just did not excite. There was a couple of house made hot sauces that I did enjoy spicing up this dish. Ms. Goofy had a gyro wrap which is a sort of Greek style burrito. Her dish followed the theme of tonight's dinner. It was fine but nothing to write home about.

Troy Greek Cuisine was a nice place to have dinner. The service was great. The meal was satisfying but to be honest a little boring. Maybe we are just missing something here. There was nothing wrong with our meal but it was just not our cup of tea. It was a nice day to see a play and have a Troy Greek Cuisine dinner.
