Two Greek Boys is located towards the Glenelg end of Anzac Highway and serves up authentic Greek street food. The eatery is run by two Greek boys, Evan and Peter, who both grew up working in family restaurants, and somewhere along the line, became passionate about hospitality. Their menu offers 12 types of pizza, 6 types of yiros, 7 grill dishes and a range of sides, dips and sweets.
For dinner, I ordered the Lamb Souvlakia; 2 lamb skewers served with village salad, chips, pita bread and homemade tzatziki. The food came out in just over 10 minutes on a wooden pizza board and the serving size was generous. The pita bread was fresh off the grill, and the tzatziki had a lovely thick consistency without being overpowered by garlic. The chips were crunchy with just the right amount of sea salt applied. The village salad was full of fresh vegetables and the small block of feta on top was a nice touch. The star of the show were the lamb skewers. These were well seasoned, however, some morsels were perfectly cooked while others were a tad overcooked.
The staff were friendly and the service was fast and efficient. The pricing was very reasonable with the Lamb Souvlakia setting me back $18. A similar dish inside a nearby Greek restaurant would probably be double the cost. It’s pretty good for a place that serves authentic Greek street food and I can see why many people rave about it.
Two Greek Boys is open Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday from 4pm-10pm, and Friday and Saturday from 4pm till late.
