Zorba's Cafe

Zorba's Cafe ($$) is a casual Greek restaurant in Dupont Circle. Located right on the circle, Zorba's has a fun atmosphere with a comfortable outside patio. While Zorba's may not have the best Greek food in town, it's inexpensive and pretty decent. The service is fast paced, as customers order at a counter and pick up the food. It is great for large parties and late night bites.

After visiting an art gallery in Dupont, a few friends and I were wandering around looking for a quick place to eat and we stumbled upon Zorbas. I ordered a Greek salad and rice pudding, Kelsey ordered the Spanakopita, and Nikesh ordered the Souvlaki plate with pork skewers. While my salad was not the best I'd ever had, Nikesh's skewers were delicious. The marinated pork tenderloin was perfectly seasoned, and all of the juices from the skewers soaked into the pita bread they sat on top of. For 12 dollars, he got the skewers, pita, a side salad, and fries--a great deal! The rice pudding was not the best, and my greek salad was nothing great. I wouldn't order either again.
