We found this restaurant on yelp while exploring the area of DC by the National Cathedral. We had totally missed lunchtime and we were hungry! We decided to hike over to Connecticut Ave bc it was a hot day and Greek food sounded perfect.
At first glance the place itself appears a bit rundown - the menu board and outdoor tables have seen better days- but then I saw the chef preparing fresh ground meatballs for the kebabs and I was certain that nothing would be frozen, and everything would be ok. I was right!
We tried to order two half chickens but they were sold for the afternoon. We later saw how busy this place is all day- several regulars walked in asking “what do you have for me today?” While we sat enjoying our lunch.
We had two grilled chicken platters- I substituted a Greek salad for rice. The dressing is homemade and was a highlight of the meal. The food was excellent. Super flavorful. Nice portion. So fresh! JUICY tomatoes even.
We will absolutely return time and time again.
Highly recommended

We ate here for lunch after a morning at the zoo. We had the Byblos special plate with gyro meat, the falafel plate, a gyro pita, and a turkey sandwich. Everything was delicious, even the cold leftovers the next day, and the prices are good for what you get. The falafel was soo good, and the gyro meat was moist and flavorful. We also got some of the baklava, made on site, to go, and it was amazing. Wish we lived closer so we could go back often.

The freshness and superb rich flavor of the food here makes for a luscious meal. The babaghanoush is the best I have had. The chicken swarma is full flavored. It is clear that Marc and his staff take great pride in serving high quality fare.

Ordered the following:

Gyros-Beef and lamb from the skewer served on pita w/lettuce,tomatoes,onions and Tzatziki.

The beef was dry and tasted old.

Spinach Pie Platter-Fillo dough stuffed w/ spinach, onions,Feta cheese & dill. Served w/greek salad.

Fillo was nasty! Watched it being microwaved and placed in carry case, and then when eating was dry out and spinach was over cooked.

Byblos Special-Choice of Grilled chicken,Kafta or Gyros meat served with rice,Hummos,Tzaziki sauce & pita.

Again beef was overcooked and dry out.

Greek Style Chicken-Roasted 1/2 chicken w/ garlic, lemon juice, olive oil & oregano. Served w/Greek salad, rice &pita.

Chicken was terribly dry.

Okay, all the Greek salads were fresh, veggies were put together in front of us.

Tzaziki sauce has heavy yogurt taste, not typical sauce I’ve had in the past.

Interior floors, cooking space and tables dirty and soiled.

It appears everything was dry, maybe they had a off evening cooking? It was Wednesday night at 6pm, who knows, will not be going back.
