The Great Greek Mediterranean Grill is now serving its authentic Mediterranean cuisine at 9961 Glades Rd. in West Boca Raton’s Shadowood Square. General Manager Carlos Perez, an experienced dining professional with family roots in the restaurant business, manages the restaurant. It boasts an award-winning menu that presents a contemporary take on Mediterranean classics and serves them in an upscale, fast-casual setting. Customers can indulge in traditional dishes such as the Great Greek Gyro, in addition to Lamb, Steak, and Chicken Souvlaki Plates, which are accompanied by Greek salads and four exclusive house-made dips like Hummus, Tzatziki, Melitzanosalata (eggplant dip), and Tirokafteri (spicy roasted red pepper).
“Food brings people together, and I’m excited to welcome the community to share good times while enjoying our awesome Mediterranean cuisine,” Perez says. “We take our guests on a culinary journey to Greece and the Mediterranean region, where every bite is a celebration of taste and tradition.” He recommends ordering the Great Greek Gyro with Lemon Potatoes, calling the Gyro “the perfect sandwich.”
Perez’s family has roots in Spain and Cuba and owned restaurants in New Jersey during his childhood. After working as a General Manager for a few different restaurant chains, he was drawn to The Great Greek Mediterranean Grill because it presented an opportunity to serve dishes made with simple ingredients and deliver friendly hospitality to customers.
