While in Olathe, we were looking for a place to grab dinner. It’s tough being a blogger sometimes because it seems like everybody expects me to make the decision on where to eat. This time, I put it on everyone else and they chose Nick The Greek. I’ve never heard of the restaurant until my visit to Olathe. It’s a chain that was started in California by three cousins named Nick. There’s one location in Olathe and another opening in Leawood.
I’m always up to try something new, so agreed to drive on over to make a carryout pickup for everyone.

The order I was given to place included two chicken gyros, a beef pita combo with fries, hummus, pita chips and bread. That didn’t include my order. After perusing through the menu, the pork souvlaki sounded delicious. It was basically meat grilled on a skewer. There was a soup I’ve never heard of called avgolemono soup so I ordered that too. One of the employees there suggested Nick’s Fries which was feta, garlic, spicy yogurt and any gyro meat loaded on fries. Since I ordered a meal and soup, I figured why not go YOLO and add in more food that will fill me up. So, the Nick’s Fries were added to my order.
A $100 later, here are some pics of what we received.
Nick The Greek was new to half of us, but everyone thoroughly enjoyed the food.
I’m not sure what was my favorite. The avgolemono soup was something completely new to me. It was a Greek lemon soup with okra, pasta, eggs, and chicken. It was rich, fragrant, and vibrant and flavors. Furthermore, it was certainly very lemony, which wasn’t for everyone, but was for me. I’m going to have to find this in Wichita somewhere. I also liked the pork souvlaki; the meat was tender and grilled just right.
Nick’s Fries were a gigantic hit at the table. Imagine smothered cheese fries but done with a Greek touch (and no cheese). OK, so, they are nothing like smothered cheese fries, but who doesn’t love smothered fries in general?
As for the gyro, I managed a bite or two and loved the mix of tzatziki sauce with the fries, meat, and vegetables. Although, I probably would have ordered the lamb just to see what it was like.
All in all, it was a delicious dinner outing and finally a time I didn’t have to make the decision.
Here’s their menu.
