Dives: Greek House

0
86

Scour Campus Corner in Norman, and a wide array of eateries offering everything from chili to pancakes will likely overwhelm hungry diners. But in the 700 block of Jenkins Avenue sits a Greek eatery that has fed hungry students, game day-goers and locals for more than three decades. Greek House was one of the first ethnic eateries in Norman. When it opened its doors in 1979, it was considered exotic, a different taste and ambiance from the standard burger-and-pizza joints. Owners Angelo and Helen Dimas left their native Greece for America in the 1970s and, upon opening Greek House, cemented their place as culinary pioneers in Norman. The Dimas sold the business late in 2012, but the food remains the same. Gyros stuffed with meat, lettuce, tomato and tzatziki served with a generous portion of crispy fries is the popular meal at Greek House, though the limited menu also includes Greek salad and lamb kebabs. Be sure to bring the green, however; Greek House is a cash-only joint. 768 Jenkins Ave., Norman. 405.364.6300
