The annual Greek Food Festival of Dallas kicks off September 25 on Hillcrest Road. Head to Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church at noon and order one of Gus Kostas’ famous gyros — he sells thousands of them at the event each year. Kostas, who owns Greek Isles at Preston and Royal, is obviously one of the festival’s most popular vendors, but he’s by no means the only attraction. Attendees can also sample baklava, attend cooking demonstrations, enjoy live dance and music performances and shop an array of Greek-imports. The festival runs through September 27. General admission is $6. Click here for details.
