Greek Grill Lake Havasu AZ

UPDATE 3-22-09

I was in Lake Havasu last week and sadly they are out of business.

Erika's friend Kimberly has been telling us about a great Greek restaurant in town so we decided to have lunch there Saturday. Am I ever glad we took her recommendation, I had one of the best lunches I've had in a while. We went to the Greek Grill.

We ordered the Appetizer Sampler for two. It was large enough for the four of us and then some. The items on the sampler are Hummus, Tabbouleh, Baba-Ghannouj, Feta cheese and Dolmades served with warm pita bread.

Kimberly had the Lamb Gyro sandwich. It was, according to the menu "Succulent lamb gyro slices, grilled and served with Tzatziki sauce." Also included on the sandwich plates was some hummus and homemade pickles which is pickled cabbage, what a treat.

Erika ordered the Chicken Gyro which is "Succulent chicken gyro slices grilled and served with tzatziki sauce." She loved the sandwich and we all agreed the pita bread was above average.

I had the Lamb kebab sandwich. It is according to the menu "Brochette of tender, lean New Zealand Lamb, marinated and seasoned with our special recipe" This was to live for delicious. The lamb was tender, and juicy. The flavor was spot on, one of the best lamb dishes I've had. I can't wait to go back and have one of their dinners.

I was going to order a Lebanese red wine Massaya but the waitress Cindy said the chef suggested I have a Vedi Alco pomegranate wine with my meal. It's not really a red but more of a dark rose, and is semi sweet. I really liked this wine with lamb. I'm going to buy this one.

Vicky had the Greek salad, it was made with romaine lettuce, fresh spinach, tomatoes, cucumbers, topped with Mediterranean olives and crumbled feta cheese and served with their signature dressing.

She had it topped with their grilled chicken breast which were nice big pieces of perfectly seasoned cooked to perfection chicken.

We were delighted at the end of the meal with a couple of desserts sent out by the chef. I think we were in the right place at the right time because the owners were sampling some new specials and we lucked out in getting some.

One dessert was not on the menu, when we asked Cindy what the name of the dessert was she said chocolate fudge cake. Well, chocolate fudge cake seemed a pale description of what we ate. The cake is served hot with hot fudge that oozes out of the middle with the first spoonful. We were ooohhhing and awwwing over it and in our silliness decided to name it Choclava.

We were also served the best backlava I've ever had, this of course is on the menu.It's a dessert of flaky filo dough stuffed with chopped spiced nuts and topped with honey and pistachios. I like that the backlava wasn't saturated with honey. All the elements of the dessert can be enjoyed and not be overwhelmed by the honey. Loved the generous sprinkling of pistachios.

They also have a Hookah patio. Here's what the menu says. "Come in and enjoy a hookah with your meal, or with an Armenian Espresso or dessert on our outdoor patio." Some of the flavors are, double apple, cantaloupe, cherry, strawberry cappuccino, mixed fruit, mint. Smokers are 100% tobacco and tar free. Didn't do this.

I'm looking forward to eating here the next time I come back to visit.
