I have eaten in many Greek Restaurants in the Lower Mainland and this little gem has the best chicken souvlaki that I have ever eaten. It is always perfectly grilled and tender. The roast potates and greek salad that come with it are always fresh. The Sagnaki is also excellent there and perfectly fried and served with fresh lemon.
Been here so many times that I know the owners by name. The lamb is to die for, as is the calamari. Very large servings and always made fresh and hot. Greek salad is wonderful as they make their own dressing for it. Nikos and Vicki make their own tzatziki which is enough to come back for alone. My favorite is calamari with extra tzatziki, Greek salad and no potato (the rice is heavenly). If you want a major feed at a moderate price (calamari dinner is $13.95) this is the spot to go. There are other Greek establishments in Mission, but they can't hold a candle to this one.
I have eaten at Eleni's many times and it is definitely and old school Greek diner sort of place. The decor is pretty bad. Fake plants, worn carpets, fluorescent lighting. The service is just OK. Prices are just OK. But, the food is actually pretty good and the burgers are excellent. The fries are excellent too and are fresh, not frozen. Caesar salad is very good because the dressing is very tasty and made in house.
