Dasks Authentic Greek Food


This is “Authentic” Greek food, as opposed to “Fake” Greek food.  I’m not even sure what that means to be completely honest.  What exactly is real or authentic food any way?  As long as it tastes good, I’m all for it.  I found this place up by the entrance to the Cottonwood Canyons and having my Groupon ready to go, I decided to give it a try.  There was no counterfeit food here, it was all good and delicious.

The Dasks Dining Room

The dining room was nice.  Two flat screen T.V’s tuned into ESPN, as they should be.  There were even some NFL clips that got my buddy and I in the mood for the upcoming fantasy football season.  I even liked the art on the wall of the Greek Coast.  I felt like I was on a field trip with my family to the art museum, but was sneaking in some football viewing on the side.  Way to go Dasks!  Football, Gyro’s, and Art.  What a trio!  Speaking of Gyros, this is what I ordered ….

Lamb Gyro plate with a salad and lime rice

The lady at the counter asked me if I wanted white or red sauce with my gyro.  Come on!  As if there should be any question!  You GOT to go with the white cucumber yogurt sauce.  (I don’t think that is what is officially called, but that’s what I’m calling it.)  The pita was warm and soft, the meal was seasoned right, and the white sauce was some yummy white sauce.  I don’t eat Greek food often, so I’m glad I chose correctly when it actually came to decision time.  The lime rice was very tasty.  It wasn’t dry at all or sticky, but it was moist and juicy.  I finished all my rice and gyro.  As far as the salad goes, well it came with some blue cheese crumbles on top.  I’m only a fan of blue cheese in certain situations.  On this visit, I didn’t love the salad, but didn’t hate it either.  My stomach was already at 30-40% capacity, so I made an executive decision not to get full on salad, and just straight for the 2 big dogs, the gyro and rice.

I liked Dasks.  If you are coming to eat over in this little pocket of restaurants just off Big Cottonwood Drive in Holladay, then you might choose here or Zupas Cafe for some soup.  I don’t think you can go wrong with any option.  The food was good and fresh.  And hey it was authentic, so you can’t go wrong there.  I would go back with another Groupon discount, but would have to try a few other Greek places first before I crown this place as my favorite.

    I’ve been to Dasks once and I liked it. I had the falafel gyro, but falafel is not really Greek. I would go again and try the lamb gyro. And the white sauce is definitely the way to go for a gyro. (It’s called tzatziki by the way).

Feedback appreciated!
