Opening its first location in El Campo, Texas, in 1985 and offering casual, upscale dining, original owners George and Tom Charkalis have now brought a second Greek Bros. to North Navarro in Victoria. “Chaos and cuisine” has quickly caught on.
“It’s one of our sayings,” George says of the motto shared with his wife Blanche, son Matthew and daughter-in-law Rachel, all with whom he runs the restaurant. “Chaos is what we call our entertainment with our bands. We have fun with them.”
As for the cuisine, Greek Bros. serves more than 50 dining room delights, including salads, seafood, meats, sandwiches and pasta. Among the favorites are the grilled tuna, gulf redfish and char-grilled steaks.
“It’s a quality dining experience in a fun atmosphere,” Charkalis says.
A Restaurant That Rocks
The "chaos" that goes on at Greek Bros. is a comfortable kind. Pictures of famous musicians and framed sports jerseys line the walls, creating an atmosphere that lets diners know they are in for a great time.
The restaurant is a popular hotspot in Victoria, with live music and entertainment every Thursday, Friday and Saturday. For those who feel like getting down after chowing down, an expanded dance floor awaits along with a stage, disc jockey booth, three full-service bars, patio, cantina and private dining room.
From cover bands playing all the hits from years past to homegrown singers who get the party started and keep it going, there’s no shortage of music at Greek Bros. Acts are scheduled months in advance and play until well past midnight. A nominal cover charge applies in most cases.
With the restaurant’s cantina, patrons can feast at the oyster bar or partake of the pool tables and video games. The open-air patio has its own grill and service area and makes for a slam-dunk private party.
Don’t be surprised if you bump into a famous athlete while hanging out. Charkalis says that when professional golf tournaments are held nearby, some of the golfers will make for the restaurant after hitting the links.
“You never can tell who you’ll bump into,” he says.
The toughest choice you’ll face at Greek Bros. is deciding which is better, the bites or the beats. Victoria’s Greek Bros. is open for lunch Tuesdays through Fridays and for dinner only on Mondays and Saturdays.
