You know that kind of architecture where the designer has an idea of what people in the future will think is really cool, but the future for him is 1980 because he's designing the building in the 1960s? Well, that's what you should be keeping your eye out for as you drive around trying to find the Greek Feast. The exterior of this place is weird-looking, yes, but if you aren't put off by the idea of eating in a place that was built to resemble a slab of gyro meat roasting on a spit, this is your spot.
The Feast is Greek food, obviously, and the place is stuck halfway between a fast-food joint where you grab your takeout and head elsewhere and a sit-down restaurant where you order at the counter and have the food brought out to you by someone who isn't quite a waiter but also isn't quite not. The service may be a little tough to pin down here, but luckily for all it doesn't detract from the quality of the food.
The standards we are used to as Chicagoans are here: the marinated greek chicken with a potato and rice pilaf, the Greek salad with strong, aromatic feta, and of course, gyros. Nearly swimming in tzatziki and cucumber, the hulking sandwiches with a side of fries get you full of happy for around $9. If you're a fan of the cheese, spring for the feta fries as well.
Beer and wine are served here, but keep in mind that this is much more an eatery than a bar.
Average cost: <$10
