Best Lunch Worth Waiting For

Santorini Greek Grill

Come December, Santorini Greek Grill owner Stavros Iannou will close shop and fly to Greece for two months to visit family and escape the cold. You'd think customers would find a new favorite lunch spot during his absence, but the moment Iannou returns, they come running back. Santorini Greek Grill is an absolute delight, a tiny cash-only eatery that serves gyros, souvlaki, and baklava made from family recipes. When in business, the street corner it's based on instantly becomes livelier, bustling with Greek folk music and Iannou's booming voice calling out orders. His customers stay put because they love the food, the service, and his playful sense of humor. Case in point: The sign next to the cash register reads "Forget Viagra, have a gyro!" —Erika Hobart 106 Central Way, Kirkland, 425-822-0555
