I really enjoy Yummy's. My experience has always been very tasty.
the gyros and other entrees are very good. Authenticity is really subjective. What is authentic Mexican, Asian or Texas cuisine?
If I liked the food maybe I am at fault for not knowing authenic Greek
cuisine which could be urban, rural, streetcart, homestyle etc. Who is the critic here.
Enjoyed the food or not... I have always enjoyed the food and service. Enough said. Anyone ever have a bad day? I am sure you have.
Its good. The staff isn't hispanic though. I know the owner and it is mostly his family who cooks the food. Maybe he hired a hispanic when I wasn't there but I go almost every week and it's usually his Lebanese wife working back there. Several of the foods ARE authentic Greek cuisine, but can also be found in other cultures and countries such as Lebanon. Its probably called greek for marketing purposes. Not many people have heard of Lebanese in Texas.
Good food, but I have news for you -- it is not authentic! You can buy all this stuff (doma, baclava, etc.) at the asian market!! Also, the folks who run the place are not Greek, but Lebanese. Kitchen staff are Hispanic.
I still like it -- food is good. Try to use restroom before you go there though, restroom is in very back, through the kitchen and storage area.
The place does not look great but they have some good food. I have eaten there and to go and always been satisfied. My only problem with the place is the menu, there are no descriptions of the food so unless you know what something is you will have to ask.
My boyfriend brought me here when I first moved to Texas. The food is awesome, service is great. Sure it's slow if you compare it to fast food. Fast food, this is not. Sit in service has always been on par compared to other sit in establishments, take out has always been in a reasonable amount of time.
My personal favorite is the supreme gyro, the baklava is delicious.
Yummy's is one of my favorite places to eat in Denton. I always take new people there and everyone loves it after going once. The hummus and peta is an excellent way to start your meal. For a meal I always get the Gyro as they have the best I have ever eaten. The other dishes are sometimes good one day and not as good on another day but I have never had a bad gyro at this place.
I wonder if some of the others who write glowing reviews for this place have ever eaten Greek food anywhere else... The food is unauthentic, overcooked, overpriced, and poorly seasoned. I've had better falafel from a cart. The spanikopita was horribly greasy and had no other flavor. The only thing that's tasty and worth it there is the baklava and I'll bet they get that somewhere else.
My boyfriend and I decided to try Yummy's since I am a huge fan of Greek food. The entire experience was very disappointing. We walked in, sat down and noticed there was no restroom. We ordered the fried asiago stuffed olives for an appetizer. I was expecting something enticing and delicious. The appetizer was chopped black olives with some sort of cheese, not asiago, mixed in and fried (bar food). I ordered the beef kabobs for my entree, which came with a salad. The salad dressing tasted like Italian dressing with oregano sprinkled on top. The beef kabob came out on a bed of rice seasoned with dill. The meat had a decent flavor, however was overcooked, dry, and tough. I had to stop eating the entree because my jaw became sore due to the toughness of the meat. The rice was dry and tasteless. When we were finished with the meal it took the waiter a very long time to clear away our plates. Then instead of giving us the check, he went and sat down with the manager and watched TV. We had to go over and request the check to pay for the meal. I have had authentic Greek food before and this was disgusting compared to authentic food. I would never recommend this restaurant to anyone. The service is slow, the food could be compared to the McDonalds of Greek food except with average prices of $10-$18, and the ambiance is nonexistent.
