Post image for Parthenon

by Lafayette Eats on February 17, 2014

After eating at the Parthenon yet again, it has come to my attention that this review was really in need of a revamp. I haven’t revisited it since the Parthenon moved from Chauncey Mall, and as it’s become one of my favorite places, I figured it deserved another look. The new location is way out west on Sagamore Parkway, in a strip mall near the Wings Etc and Snap Fitness. Plenty of parking and it’s really a nice area.

The inside is big. It’s one big room and when you walk in, there’s a corridor to walk down to the counter. You order at the counter and they bring the food to your table.

The menu has a lot of options, and it occurs to me that I really need to branch out in my choices here because all I ever get are gyros. I haven’t even tried the Saganaki and I really do love Saganaki. I have a standard order of gyros and Greek fries. If you haven’t tried the Greek fries, then you simply must. Seasoned fries with feta on top. Mmmmm.

I’m definitely a fan of the Parthenon in this new location. The gyros are very good. However, I will have to say that I think Captain Gyros has a better tzatziki sauce. But parking is difficult at times by Captain Gyros and it has limited seating, so on the whole I tend to go to Parthenon more often.

Kid friendly: Yes. My kids love it. They have a kid’s menu with junior gyros, or for the less adventurous, chicken fingers

Methods of payment: Cash or credit.

Sushi Don Asian Fusion opened in December 2013 in the former location of Maza II, at the northwest corner of US 52 and Main Street in Lafayette. Similar to Maza, Sushi Don specializes in Korean and Japanese fare. I was not aware that Maza II had closed, and when a friend asked me to have […]

There have been a variety of restaurants at the corner of 4th and South streets. You had Blue Fin Bistro, then Lushan (both by same owners), and before that Lafayette City Grill. The newest restaurant to grace this presence in 2013 is Ichiban Sichuan. I got a chance to try it out the other day, […]

Recently I’ve seen a lot of check-ins at a place called “Professor Joe’s” in downtown Lafayette. I hadn’t heard of it, so I went looking for more information. I found their Facebook page, which describes them as an “Upscale Sports Pub.” I found this interesting. I’m not sure how you make a sports pub upscale. […]

I had an opportunity to go to Maza last night for dinner, and I’m glad I did. I get to update my review to reflect my current experience. It’s still in the old Pizza King/Sorrentos location on Sagamore Parkway, so the location for much of our area isn’t ideal, but it’s great for me since […]

Let’s not dance around the elephant in the room. This location seems cursed. In conjunction with announcing the opening of the new Lenehan’s Pub, Hayleigh Colombo, writing for the Lafayette Journal & Courier had a story listing previous efforts recently at this location. Lenehan’s is at the location previously occupied by the Cajun Connection (2003), […]

Have you heard about this new place called Serendipity? It’s located at the corner of 8th and Main, right where PRE Lounge was, if you ever went there. This tends to be a popular area for restaurants to die. I certainly hope that doesn’t happen to Serendipity. I dined at Pre a few times when […]
