Olympos Crow-Bar Restaurant-Closing Day

Big Crow Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato It was a sad day in Toronto on March ‎18, ‎2016. It was the closing day of the Olympos Crow-Bar Restaurant. It was published in 24 Hours, The Toronto Sun and other newspapers.

It's an authentic diner located on Princess Street. Apparently, movies were filmed here.

That's Jimmy in the white hat in the photo. They hired an excellent line chef who is in the grey hat in the background. We did not get his name. We had no idea where Mikey went.

Their clientele base were mainly workers within the area. Particularly construction workers and men. I remember my first time Danny took me here, Mikey and Jimmy were chatting up construction workers. Mikey said to them, "So did you meet any pretty ladies lately?" It went something like that. 

The new line chef preparing our food lightening fast.
I originally wanted to order a Greek Chicken Dinner with the Chicken on a stick, rice, greek salad and potatoes but they ran out.

My cheeseburger combo (I eventually asked for gravy like Alex's combo. Alex recommended the gravy). 

Danny's Bacon Cheeseburger Combo

I thought it was so pretty at this angle! 

My plate again with the gravy. It was gooey, chunky and good with the fries. My burger was not greasy and a decent size. My stomach had shrunk so I was struggling to finish this meal. 

Brian ordered the Gyro (pronounced as Yeeroh) Sandwich. 

I regret not coming here often. Mikey and Jimmy did ask Danny to bring me. You don't know what you have until it's gone.These were the last moments of the Greasy Greek Diner (a nickname Danny made up). This place is definitely a 3.5/5.0. It's clean, real diner food. If you are a regular, they will give you generous portions of food. I am unsure where I am going to go within the St. Lawrence/Distillery Area for Greek food. There is none.
