Not to quibble but I consider Greek and Middle-eastern to be two different cuisines. Greek food has more in common with the cuisine of Istanbul then it does with Arab and Israeli food. In both Istanbul and Greece you find stuffed peppers, stuffed eggplant, moussaka. Greece also has pastry entrees stuffed with feta cheese and spinach. Arab/Israeli food has (among other things) falafel, hummous, tahini sauce, tabouli. Both have the sliced meats served in pita bread although in Greece the gyros are served with yogurt sauce while in the middle-east the (similar) shwarma sandwiches are served with tahini sauce.

By DU, you've got good Jewish food. In Pueblo, you got the slopper and the grinder.

In Colorado Springs, I think you got Zorbadillos (Greek) and Mataam Fez (Moroccan).

So the good answer to the OP is, "No.".

Good point, but right now I'll take what I can get. So far Ive had some great Pizza (Paul's), breakfast burrito's (Betty's), and surprisingly good fish tacos from Taco Star. That place looks like a fast food joint but they've got real food Thanks for the tips, keep 'em coming

I am glad you are enjoying them. One more for now. Mozart is in downtown off Main Street. It was first opened in the 1970's and just reopened. I went there for lunch today and it was great. I would recommend it for lunch or dinner. There is a new Italian restaurant in Pueblo West and I hear it is good.

CJ yes... pretty good fish tacos but I want to tell them to stoo using lettuce and start using cabbage.

Joss, not a fancy place yet, but the owner is cool and the food was good. I had some kind of Alfredo thing with strips of steak on it and it were good.

Default Mr Tandoori Indian Cuisine

Just tried this place for lunch yesterday. I ordered the lamb korma about medium spicy and it was so good. A bit pricey for lunch, but worth the price imo for something different than the normal Pueblo cuisine. I ordered takeout. They have a lunch buffet from 11-2 and I'd like to try that some time too.

The number is 719-544-3002 at 310 S Victoria right there by the Depot between D and C streets.

Tried Mr. Tandoori and it was AWESOME! Did the lunch buffett and it was great, better than most Indian restaurants in Denver. The owner served us, he was really nice and seemed to show a real appreciation for our business. The dinner prices look a little scary but I'm hoping my wife and I might be able to share. Hope to get back there soon, thanks for the tip!
