In the span of three days, I’ve twice found myself at Trolley Square’s newest restaurant, Opa! Opa! The Small Big Greek Place— once for lunch with friends and again because I was low on groceries and wanted something delicious and quick.
I’m embarrassed to say I haven’t been one for variety: Both times I couldn’t pass up Opa’s grilled chicken Greek salad. It’s incredibly fresh. The tomatoes are sliced in ripened perfection and the chicken is full of flavor. The salad also comes with cucumbers, kalamata olives, bell peppers, red onion and rectangular hunks of feta cut right off the block. (If salads aren’t your thing, a friend who got the lamb and beef gyro gave it two thumbs up.)
The restaurant offers all the Greek classics you would expect, from souvlaki to baklava, and they all look delish.
Like most restaurants in the Trolley Square shopping center, Opa! Opa! is a simple set-up. You place your order at the cash register and can watch your meal be prepared at the counter (or a server can bring it to you). Drinks aren’t fancy, but they’re all you need to go with your meal—choose from bottled water (for a dollar) or other bottled soft drinks in a refrigerated case next to the counter. There’s room for three tables inside and a few tables outside, and the interior is decorated in, of course, the crisp Greek colors of blue and white, complete with inviting images of Greek landscapes on the wall and an HD television set on a channel showcasing Greek landmarks.
I’ll definitely be returning— and certainly look forward to diversifying my order next time!
Opa! Opa! (302-654-4500) is open Monday through Saturday 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m., and on Sundays from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
