Tazikis Mediterranean Cafe

August 22, 2017

Ever since we got back from Greece, I crave Mediterranean food.  Something about delicious tzatziki sauce and gyros takes me right back to Mykonos and Santorini. Fortunately, I found a place in Plano that offers fresh and flavorful food that satisfies that craving. Taziki’s Mediterranean Cafe has two locations in DFW, Plano and Southlake. The Plano location is just south of 121 and Preston. Plano Magazine and Tazikis Plano partnered together to host a fit foodie night with several Dallas and Plano bloggers.

About Taziki’s

Taziki’s started in Birmingham, Alabama and now has over 40 locations in 11 states. They pride themselves on being the first national franchise to receive a REAL certification. You will not find a microwave, freezer or deep fryer in their kitchen, because all of their food is made with the freshest ingredients. They are a scratch kitchen that offers healthier prep methods too. Not only can you choose from one of many freshly grilled meats, but there are a variety of vegetarian options. Taziki’s is a great place for all plant-based and meat eaters alike.

What to eat

No matter what you order from the menu, know that it will be good, fresh, and flavorful.


Choose from a variety of dips- hummus, taziki, or spicy pimento cheese (my favorite!).

Entrees + sides

The grilled chicken roll up has feta and tomato and served in a griddled tortilla.

Any of the grilled meats make an excellent entree choice, too. Choose from chicken, beef, lamb, or pork loin. All meats are served with Greek salad and your choice of rice or potatoes.

They even have seafood options like salmon, shrimp, or tilapia.

If you are looking for less meaty options, choose from a variety of salads or the grilled veggie plate.

Accompany your entree with one of their fresh sides. I highly recommend the pasta salad or tomato-cucumber salad.


The dark chocolate cake is perfect for the chocolate lover of your group. It’s made from scratch with Richmond icing.

As much as I love chocolate, the baklava is where it’s at. They get their baklava from Hellas bakery, and it is by far the best tasting baklava I have ever had.

Head over to Taziki’s for lunch or dinner the next time you want some REAL delicious food.

Thank you to Plano Magazine and Tazikis Plano for hosting us at this event. All thoughts and opinions remain my own.

    This all looks so fresh and delish. I went to their website to see if there was a location near me but it wasn’t working so I will try again later. (I hope there is one near Chicago!) I did see that they are environmentally responsible and support a charity as well. Great company!

    Love the name “Taziki’s” tells all about what to expect and me being a mediterranean food enthusiast I would love to have a restaurant like this in Orlando. We have many but a good greek restaurant is almost 3 hours away. The food looks amazing and seems you had great fun.

  • Cynthia August 24, 2017 at 1:46 am

    Mediterranean food is the best, I could eat tzatziki all day, every day! Do they also have live music? That would seal the deal for me!

  • sonali jain August 24, 2017 at 6:04 am

    That sounds incredible! I always struggled to find a good Greek restaurant when I was living in the states. In Melbourne, there seems to be an abundance of Greek restaurants. It difficult to find the best!

  • Michael @ Super Millennial August 24, 2017 at 5:52 pm

    Wow this place looks amazing, wish there was one in Arizona!

  • Jill Conyers August 24, 2017 at 7:12 pm

  • Jeannine Dippenaar August 25, 2017 at 2:15 pm

    I love the great variety offered by Mediterranean restaurants, awesome sauces and entrees. I usually start off with a baklava when no one sees me, just love it. . .
