The Zagat Review
“You’ll be hard-pressed” to top the “superb Greek classics” emerging from the kitchen at this cash-only Greektown BYO, longtime home to “plentiful” portions of “out-of-this-world” (and “underpriced” ) “comfort food” from an “endearing” staff; “crazy crowds” pack the “hole-in-the-wall” space, but it’s “so worth the wait” ; P.S. the “salad dressing is like the nectar of the gods.”

Great authentic Greek food. The salad dressing is excellent and all we use at home. Great old world feel. Bring cash as they do not accept cards or checks. If you forget, there is an ATM. I love their chicken dishes and the eggplant spread appetizer.

This restaurant has been a personal favorite f9r my cousin and I to visit whenever I'm in the Baltimore-DC area. It's a wonderful Greek experience with food that is very common to the culture, yet is comfortable enough for inexperienced American taste buds. To begin, it is a open, but small neighborhood restaurant that has a nice neighborly atmosphere where everybody could know your name. The staff is very friendly and personable, and will always try their best to make you feel warm on a cold day! Moreover, their food is absolutely amazing and I would personally a recommend any of their lamb dishes (which are exceptionally scrumptious). Finally, with their desserts, which is always the most important part of a meal, I would recommend ordering the Galaktoboureko- beautifully flaky dessert with a heavenly custard filling. Overall, if you're ever in Baltimore and want to go to a good local restaurant with a Greek flare, Samos is your diner.

Family owned authentic Greek restaurant in Greek town. Very reasonable prices and big portions. Everything we got was good and the service was good as well. It's BYOB; we were there for lunch but we saw a table of older couples pop open a bottle of wine at lunch and it made us jealous. There's a $2 charge for every adult that drinks as noted on the menu.
