Round Rock Restaurant Review - Zorba Greek Restaurant
Yesterday, while my mom was still in town, we decided to go do a bit of shopping with the whole family. We were headed to Lakeline Mall, and we originally considered going to that area to eat. On the way there, I decided that would be ill-advised, considering it was the day after Christmas and it was exactly "lunchtime" (i.e. around noon). Instead, we opted to go to Zorba, which is a Greek restaurant located near Dell in Round Rock, just in front of the Wal-Mart.
Although the food was superb, the communication skills of the employees who were placed in charge of taking our order were VERY poor. It was laborious trying to explain what we wanted to eat, and it took several tries to finally get everything squared away at the counter. Additionally, the menu was not helpful, as I picked something rather quickly, only to find out that we MUST order from the lunch menu, which the menu did not specify. All things considered, it worked out well, as they actually gave me more food for about two dollars less.
Our kids enjoyed their cuisine as well, which is really the primary determining factor for our family as to whether or not we will return. My son had a plain chicken gyro (pita wrap) and he liked it a lot, proclaiming it "spicy and tasty". Our daughters (one age six and one toddler) both enjoyed the meatballs with rice, although the Zorba crew was unable to provide the meatballs without the somewhat spicy sauce (we rubbed it off with a napkin).
My wife and I both had the chicken plate with tzatziki sauce, with sides of hummus, rice pilaf, and tabouli. My mom had a salad with chicken that looked and tasted great. The meals come with one piece of pita bread, and they only charge 50 cents for each additional piece. We were frankly too stuffed to have dessert, and we brought home some of the leftovers.
Overall, I would recommend Zorba, as long as you have some patience when it comes to getting your order correct. Since you order at the counter and the food is pretty much ready to go, the service is fast. Drinks are self-service. The total for our meal (three adults, three kids) was only $41 and change, so it is pretty affordable.
