... with very good moussaka and gyros plates. Service was good, and quantities were generous. The place is larger than it looks from the outside, and there is a sister cafe at the same location. So, don't be intimidated by what may appear to be a very full parking lot near the building.

We went with a group of 7 to Demetri's. It was suggested by one couples.A short 45 minutes from our houses. We made a reservation because it was a Saturday evening. Service was very good despite they were very busy. Everyone ordered something different for the main entree and was very pleased.

Something went wrong for dinner, I ate lunch there a while back and had the best gyros sandwich I ever had. Everything was perfect, the meat was cooked just right, the tzatziki sauce was the best and the fries where good.

I when for dinner and it was a totally different thing. The meat dry like jerky, seamed like it was left over from lunch and was sitting under a heat lamp all afternoon. And no fries with the dinner.

I payed 2 dollars more for dinner, got a little extra meat it seems, a salad and no fries. How can a gyros be severed w/o fries on the dinner menu.

Chicago and its surrounding area offers an extensive choice of Greek culinary choices, however, Demetris in Deerfield stands out with their exceptional quality.
We dined there for an early dinner the other day and were thrilled to be able to sit outside [on a lovely day] on their terrace. Our waiter and his colleagues were very accommodating, present, but - not omnipresent.
Among our dishes were an appetizer of grilled-squid, which was perfectly prepared, if large enough to have been an entree [but, I'm not complaining]. The Saganaki was flamed to perfection. The Avgolemono, a traditional Greek soup made with fresh lemon, egg, rice & chicken, was also perfectly presented and a splendid palette-cleansing between courses; it was mild, but - gently flavorful. The appetizer of Garides Scharas, marinated and grilled jumbo shrimp, was also excellent. It's safe to say that the Moussaka was certainly among the best I've ever tasted and the Dolmades were right on the mark. That which came from their kitchen can't be faulted, nor could be the service, and there's no room for improvement on the hospitality - from the moment we entered inclusive of our leaving. Oh yes, and the Ouzo was served splendidly cold.
If there were any imperfections with the meal, I'd offer that the bread's [complimentary] center was rather a bit on the hard-side and the Greek-coffee - a touch too sweet [though I'd ordered it 'medium' and not 'sweet']. With the substantial amount of food consumed none of us had any inclination toward a desert course, but, we will attempt to allow for some next time.
Parking is adjacent, free and ample.
