Opa! Greek Taverna is a little bit of Greece in Rowlett, TX. Situated near the intersection of Lakeview Parkway (66) and Rowlett Rd., Opa provides authentic Greek cuisine and a full bar seven days a week. Take-out and catering are also available.
Frequently on the weekends, Opa! Greek Taverna has live belly dancers entertaining their guests, and Greek music playing every day. Beautiful Greek decor and pictures of Greece, taken on location by our owner Kostas, transports diners to Mediterranean bliss. Shouts of “Opa!” can be heard as flames ascend from our cheesy Saganaki appetizer. Juicy Gyro meat, creamy Tzatziki spread, and Yia Yia’s Lentil Soup will leave your belly happy and satisfied. The Mythos beer and Baklava Cheesecake are definitely dishes you don’t want to miss!
Opening day for Opa! Greek Taverna was May 20, 2013. Our owner, Kostas Lazanas, worked as a server and manager at local Greek restaurants. He saved up for several years to fulfill his dream of opening his very own Greek restaurant, and was excited for the day that dream came true. Kostas’ father grew up in Derveni, Greece, a coastal town overlooking the beautiful blue waters of the Gulf of Corinth.
Many of the dishes at Opa! Greek Taverna are inspired by the culinary creations of Kostas’ Yia Yia (grandmother). Just inside the doors of Opa, you can find a picture of her cooking in her traditional Greek kitchen.
A member of the Rowlett Chamber of Commerce, Opa! Greek Taverna is a happy addition to the diversity of Rowlett dining. We hope that you will come dine with us often, and that you’ll have a wonderful experience every time! Opa!
