When I moved to Birmingham, I was looking for a replacement for my favorite Mediterranian inspired restaurant in Jackson, MS. Although Taziki's is very much Amercian fare it is fresh, consistent and provides a solid Mediterranian option in the fast-casual market. It's my go-to when...More

Used to be local but now they have franchised. Its still great. Lots of healthier options with grilled meats, sandwiches, salads and veggies. Fast casual dining gets you a quality meal and in and out fast.

Get away from the busy pace of your life and the noise of the world. Step through our doors and discover a place where we combine extraordinary food with meaningful connections. Look around and you may notice the pictures on the wall that tell the story of Keith and Amy Richards' 1997 trip to Greece where they encountered big-hearted people around small table cafe's that inspired Taziki's. Our Mediterranean-inspired menu has a bit of a southern accent, which we make from scratch everyday. Watch us prepare your meal through our open kitchens, and enjoy the relaxing music and quiet environment that is designed for conversation and community gatherings. After all, in a world hungry for connection and happiness, relationships are what matter most. Need to get away? Time to escape to Taziki's.
