The restaurant started doing business with a Mexican food buffet and an a la carte menu of Greek food, even though the large part of their clientele were Mexican people. Six months after opening however, the Greek dishes were selling more and more, so Chef Koutzimbis decided to open a magnificent buffet of the best, most popular, and most typical Greek foods for all their clients to enjoy.

Pashalis Koutzimbis

Chef and founder of Zorbas
Mr. Koutzimbis puts his heart into each dish. For him, it’s not a job, it’s a passion! He came to the United States in November of 1983 and decided to open the doors of his wonderful restaurant in March 1989. There is art embodied in the ingredients, whether it be oregano, mint, or garlic, and within each individual flavor mixture comes a succulent feast for those who are fortunate enough to taste his wonderful creations.

It should be noted that both clients and food critics point out that nobody has done a better or more accurate portrayal of authentic Greek cuisine as has Mr. Pashalis. Many say that they feel like they are sitting on the terrace of a restaurant located in the beautiful Greek islands, complete with a fabulous view, and a romantic feast served with a glass of Anis, (the most popular drink in Greece.) Come and live the experience and enjoy the flavors of this exquisite place with your whole family!


Authentic Greek Cuisine, Culture, And Entertainment.
The name is inspired by the movie “Zorba the Greek.” With that theme in mind, in 1995 the restaurant came up with the idea of offering an entertaining show to their guests, to educate them a bit about Greek music, traditions, dances, and most importantly, the taste of Greek food!

Loved it! Went here with 2 friends for one of their dinner parties. The food selection was excellent and the food tasted amazing. We didn't try any desserts. Service was amazing. Restaurant was clean. There were also belly dancers and tons of entertainment.

This place is amazing.
Tried it for the first time yesterday and was not at all disappointed.

All the food tasted AND looked fresh.
I could not get over how well it was presented and looked, considering it's a "buffet".
