It’s Greek, it’s Southern, it’s all mouthwatering
A shopping marathon at Hamilton Place can leave you tired of chain stores and franchise fast food—so visiting The Acropolis after is like a breath of fresh air.
The food is Mediterranean in its stylings, yet there is something uniquely Chattanoogan about it. Maybe it’s the fact that The Acropolis has been locally owned and operated here for 20 years.
Maybe it’s because they get so many of their ingredients from local sources. Maybe it’s their traditions of famous Greek (and Southern) hospitality and giving back to the community.
Whatever it is, that Chattanooga soul is what makes this restaurant perfect for treating family or guests visiting for the holidays. A diverse menu is sure to please even picky eaters, and the mix of offerings from home and from far away are just the right combo, including comfort foods like lamb shank or braised short ribs with grits and greens.
These slow-cooked, rustic flavors are coming out just in time for the cold weather. Grilling is great for the summer, but a braised dish has the kind of hearty, rich flavor that will warm you from the inside out. Their meats cook for as long as four hours before coming out hot and tender to your table.
If you can’t make it to sit down dinner at the Acropolis, then you can get it to go or even have it catered. The Acropolis caters offices luncheons and meetings, home parties, and any event you need. Busy this holiday season? You can get a whole cake or dessert to go for your family table with more than twenty choices from their bakery.
The Acropolis opens at 11 a.m. every day and stays open until 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and until 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday. They’re located at 2213 Hamilton Place Blvd., and you can call (423) 899-5341 or visit acropolisgrill.com for catering and menu information.
