Is there a Greek population, Greek church, Greek/meditteranean food stores in the Ballantyne area?

YES...there is a Greek population in Charlotte....they probably own or run 1/2 the restaurants...and that is a VERY good thing!

Charlotte has 2 Greek Orthodox Churches.

Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Cathedral -- Main Greek Church (Intown)
600 East Blvd

&

St Nektarios Greek Orthodox Church -- South Charlotte
5108 Kuykendall Rd

Not sure about food stores in Ballantyne area!

There is even a Greek public charter school, Socrates Academy, fairly close by in Matthews. The website is Socrates Academy - Home Page

Many of my old buddies years ago were Greek (2nd generation). That was back in the 60s. Anyway, I remember when part of 7th Street was called Greek Street before it became a depressed area. Strangely, the Greeks cook better southern food than southerners (or almost as good).

Yes, my Greek coworker's parents own a Southern diner somewhere north of Charlotte. Her uncle also owns Greek Isles.

I tried the Acropolis in Cornelius a few weeks ago. I was pleasantly surprised at the authenic food. Huge portions as well. I believe that Cook House in Cornelius which is a southern restaurant is Greek or at least the workers sound Greek.

I don't think there are any Greek restaurants IN Ballantyne, but there are some near it. Akropolis in the Arboretum (which is near Ballantyne) is pretty good. If you do a search for Greek restaurants in Charlotte I am sure you will find plenty.

I believe the Cook House is the one they own.

The Akropolis is not owned by a Greek I do believe.
