Second Place: The Crazy Greek
Third Place: Zorba's Greek and Italian Cuisine
If Richmond has a Greek grandmother, it's Stella Dikos. Her eponymous restaurant wins hearts for its classic menu, community table and excellent Greek wine list. Yes, the lines are long to get in, but once at Stella's table you'll be one of the family. The Crazy Greek's devotees point to the portion sizes and the restaurant's longtime presence here as reasons why it's a favorite. Zorba's, with the motto, "Eat Greek once a week," has been feeding local families long enough to recognize regulars. Its new interior is the only good thing about a recent fire.
