While the salad at Milto's is your standard Greek -- feta, black olives, yada yada -- the housemade salad dressing here has achieved something of cult-like status, compelling folks to buy whole bottles of it just in case the apocalypse really does come one day, and they're relegated to a bleak future of dry lettuce leaves. Tangy, oily, and oregano-y, it's been emulsified into true bliss.
Not as good as it used to be – I used to like this place, but lately it has gone downhill. The service is poor and a lot of the recipes for the food have changed.
Not recommended – Long wait. Bad service. Mediocre food. Not going back. Don't recommend it. They do have a small parking lot, which is a plus for places on the drag.
A very bad experience – I would suggest staying away from this place. I waited 45 minutes for a slice of pizza during a slow lunch day. The slice was obviously sitting out all day and so I have no idea why it took so long. That's actually not true, it took so long because the staff here are lazy, unfriendly, and incompetent. I would avoid this place like the black plague.
good food bad service – The food is great. You can never go wrong with their gyros and pizza. I gave it 3 stars because I usually have to deal with rude staff when I am there.
Not good for groups, rude owner – This is my fourth year at UT and I have yet to try Miltos. About 10 of use made tried to make reservations, but were told it wasn't necessary. When we got there, the place had other campus organizations meeting for the start of the semester. We waited about 20 minutes because the staff didn't want to put a few tables together for us despite there being plenty of empty tables and chairs. The food also took forever. We basically had no service. The actual food was ok, nothing great. The T sauce was good in the Gyro, but the rest of the meal seemed bland.
Nothing special – Miltos serves a variety of Greek and Italian food. The place looks a little run down and the service was, as others suggest, rather poor to non-existent. The food was ok, but nothing special. I had the house salad which seemed to have some old veggies. Next, I had a Gyro that was anything but spectacular. The sauce was the normal with some feta and greens. A little pricey for what I got.
Dry food, old food makes for a poor combination – Went because some of the reviews suggest this might be a decent place. Don't believe these reviews. First, the salad I had was mostly old leaves and little feta and olives on the a Greek salad. The stoned, lazy, and unfriendly girl at the counter would not add more. I basically had to serve myself for everything during my visit. The Stromboli was very dry because there wasn't any sauce. My fork and glass were crusty with old food on them and it was a big big hassle for the employees to exchange them. I 'll go to Mandoloas or Niki's before I ever try this place again.
Terrible, Terrible, Service brings down a mediocre Greek/Italian Joint – I am an expert in Greek food. And for those of you seeking delicious Greek or Italian food I would advise you to spend your money elsewhere. There is a good selection of items and this seems like a nice mom and pop establishment. That said, the customer service here is terrible. From the girl working behind the counter taking your order to the cook that doesn't care for consistency in food preparation, Miltos is hands down one of the worst dining experiences I have ever had. Several of our dishes did not have adequate sauces, toppings were barely visible (evidence of skimping), and we had to basically serve ourselves each time we wanted a drink refill, silverware, or a side item. The lady who claims to be the manager did nothing to take care of any of the problems we had with our food and even argued with us about how WE have had the same dishes prepared on previous visits. I won't return and neither will anybody else from my dinner party.
Do not give them your business – Miltos is well-known to discriminate against African Americans and has poor customer service. They serve Greek and Italian food, but are not consistent in making it with the same ingredients. They will argue with customers rather than try to solve their problems. The last time I was in there I saw a dead raoch on the pizza cutting counter. The kitchen is dirty and I've seen staff not wash their hands after using the restroom. You basically have to serve yourself when you dine it. The food is overpriced and the atmosphere is bland.
New Owners – Miltos is a good restaurant but the new owners need to stick to the same recipes and produce from before. The olives in the salad tasted like they came from the bottom of a jar. The tomatoes were probably on the verge of being thrown out. The food had a lot more salt than it used to. I used to order the kids spaghetti and a side salad for $6.50 which filled you up and was a great deal, the new owners however are enforcing the age limit for ordering the kids portion. So now you get a LOT of pasta but it comes at a hefty price (im a poor student) around $6.50, not including a salad (side is $3 and some change). If you go here id probably stick to ordering pizza which is really good.
