Best Greek food in Apex/Cary area.
XIOS is exactly what I have been looking for in a Greek restaurant for a long time. It is hard to come by a place that has great decor, great staff, and great food without the prices being outrageous. What is even better is that you don't even have to go all the way into downtown Raleigh to find a decent place like this.
Nestled in a shopping center on the corner of Hwy 55 and Apex Peakway, right down the strip from Rudinos, next to a dry cleaner, and surrounded by several grocery stores, it is incredibly convenient for anyone who lives in the Morrisville/Apex/Cary/Holly Springs area. It's so easy to pick up the dry cleaning, eat dinner, and grab groceries on the way home. It's also just down the road from the Brier Creek shopping center in Apex.
Every time we have been there, the food has been excellent and the wait staff very courteous. One of my favorites is their house Greek salad with gyro lamb meat on it - it's the perfect portion size and definitely filling. I've tried most of their appetizers - there is something for everyone. They even have several "platters" that give you a little bit of everything on them. Don't forget about dessert, because they have some of the best around. My favorite is the XIOS Baklava Sundae - words can't describe it.
Even if you don't live in Apex, it's worth the trip!
Best Greek Food Ever!.
This is my new favorite restaurant! There are so many great choice on the menu to please everyone in my family: me (the adventurous eater), my husband (meat eater), and my daughter (she's 7, enough said). There were lighter choices than I have seen on some Greek menus, which I appreciated.
The service was excellent. The pace of the meal was relaxed and homey.
We live in Apex, but if you don't, it is worth the trip!
Thanks so much for your feedback !! and for taking the time to post!
Best Greek Food in the area. This is a wonderful, friendly place. The food is excellent . We have tried other Greek restaurants, but this is by far the best.
Thank you for your feedback .. which dishes did you like best?
Inconsistent. When I first moved to Apex 4 years ago I frequented this restaurant during my pregnancy. I returned 2 years ago after I moved to Fuquay-Varina and noted that the food quality had gone down as well as the portion size. The service was spotty as well. I left a review but I can't find it. I see other older reviews but mine is gone. Odd. I stand on the opinion that Nikos is a much more authentic restaurant as I have dined there with true Greeks. I think if XIOS would mend its consistency problems (I see others have complained as well) then it would be a 5 star restaurant.
Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback. I could use your help... I am not exactly sure when you came in .. your post indicates "i returned 2 years ago" but your post is dated last week :>) Assuming you posed right after you came in last week, we have launched a new menu ( which we were in fact serving on the 28th) and you are correct in that some things have changed though feedback to date has been extremely positive. You can see the new menus here - http://www.xioscafe.com/menus.html - Can you please give me more details on what you ordered so I can better understand the specific quality issues and portion size?
Did not meet expectations.
It was cold in there. I felt they were trying to save money by keeping heat down.
I got gyro, she got sampler. I didn't like the gyro that much, not the soup or potatoes either. She thought grape leaves were not bad and two of the three items from the sampler. She didn't like the Greek lasagne.
Service was slow, left restaurant with an empty cup sitting there for like 10 minutes.
Waiter was nice, dressed appropriately. Lighting was okay and overall room was not bad.
I would not recommend this to anyone. If you want gyro, go to Nur Delhi at Mission Valley near NCSU.
I am sorry if you were cold.. did you by chance tell anyone and have the issue addressed? If you did and my staff didn't take care of it for you I would definitely like to know so I can address it immediately. I can assure you it was not turned down for the sake of saving money .. comfortable customers are far more important in our book.
Also .. can you give me some more information on the issue with the food.. what in particular did you not like? On the service, a little more information there would also be helpful.. we work hard with the staff on providing the best service and if there is an issue I by all means want to address it immediately.
Thank you for taking the time to provide your further feedback and i look forward to your response. Feel free also to contact me directly at email@example.com.
We love the restaurant!. My husband and I were at this restaurant the week it opened. The food is consistent every time we are there, great service, and surprisingly kid friendly! A fantastic wine list and great bar as well. Don't turn down dessert if you can help it...the baklava and rice pudding are some of the best I've ever had!
Thanks for your feedback and your support!!

Excellent food and Atmosphere.
My husband and I found a jewel one day a couple of years ago at the work food court. A restaurant by the name of XIOS was serving Greek food for lunch and it was a nice change from the normal food served in the cafeteria. I approached them afterwards and inquired where in the area they were located. I was shocked to find out, not only was I speaking to the owner, but that they were located less than a mile from our house! Apparently I had been driving right by them for over 2 years.
Since then, we try to frequent the restaurant often. My husband and I really like to dine at locally owned and operated restaurants as we feel putting our money directly back into the local economy ultimately benefits us in the long run. Every time we dine at XIOS, we are personally greeted and always feel welcome. We get top class service and the food is scrumptious. I am a sucker for their Spanakopita and they have, hands down the best house salad dressing ever!
It's so nice to have a Greek restaurant in the neighborhood and I hope they are here for years to come. We appreciate the interest they have in the local economy and it is so refreshing to have a non-corporate, family-owned, one of a kind European Restaurant.
And if you are looking for a romantic atmosphere for Valentine's Day, look no further. They've had a great special date night every year and I sincerely hope they will do it again on 2-14-10. They belly dancer was a nice added touch as well. :)
Best Gyros in Town.
`I would say this place has the best gyros I have ever had. I’m from Boston and have had good gyros but by far this is the best… Fresh great flavor and lots of meat..If I was closer I would eat their every day..
Keep up the good work…
