Spankopita?

Sam and I decided to go Greek this weekend. We visited one of our favorite hotspots, Nick's. Nick's is not a place you go to for atmosphere, a romantic date, or for a fine dining experience. It is however, hands down the best Greek food I've ever had. The menu has a wide variety from bar food to traditional greek, but they're known for their gyros, potatoes, and Nick's secret sauce! Sam threatens to steal the bottle of sauce perfection everytime we go. My personal favorite is the Fallafel Wrap, it's diced tomatoes, onions, and sprouts atop delicious fallafel inside the softest pita you could ask for and drenched in Nick's sauce, add the potatoes and you won't be sorry! Your best bet is to go on a pretty day and sit outside. Inside is smoky and sort of depressing. I fantasize about redecorating everytime I'm there. Nick's is located on Whitlock Avenue in a little house which is connected to the Back Porch, one of Marietta's favorite dives.

Nick's at the Back Porch: 645 Whitlock Ave SW, Marietta 30064

I thought Nicks was just a smoky seedy dive bar. I had no idea they made rocking Greek food too. I am so on this. Thanks!
