I quit going to the Atlanta Greek Festival years ago. It's too crowded and I can get all the same stuff at the Cumming Greek festival a few weeks later. http://www.cumminggreekfestival.com

As far as the Greek food goes, what they offer is pretty lame (lame, not lamb).  I mean, gyros and souvlaki?  It's not like they're roasting a whole lamb on a spit or something.

They were a few years ago. I haven't been in a few years. Meh. I won't be able to go this year either.

It has been a couple of years since I/we went too, and back then they did have two spits going roasting whole lambs, but they found that they made their $$ on the drive-thru aspects of boxed semi-Greek food and moved toward that.  It is understandable but sad.

That is too bad. I recall their roast lamb being as good as their bigger brother's, but without all the lines and chaos. Oh well.
