To say that you get more than you pay for at this Greek joint is an obscene understatement. It’s not just that the portions are huge—it’s that the food is well-spiced and fresh…. it’s a refreshing change from most Greek spots. And refreshing for vegetarians, too, with its veggie versions of rich moussaka and pastitsio.
Cross-Rhodes in Evanston serves reasonable priced, tasty Greek fare. For what you’d pay for appetizers in Greektown, you can have a sizeable entree here. Choose among a roster of salads that you can top with feta, souvlaki, chicken and more for a nice protein punch. Two fisted sandwiches include gyros, pork souvlaki and a Rhodes burger – half pound burger with your choice of cheese and gyros slices on top.
Everyone was smitten with the food.
This Greek-American spot has served specialties like mousaka and spanakopita since 1984 in suburban Evanston. Located inside one of the area’s oldest buildings — a meat packing plant built in 1895 — Cross-Rhodes remains a local favorite even after the passing of founder Jeff Russell in 2012.
The one thing that’s traditional at Cross-Rhodes is the good food and the warm atmosphere.
