Opa! for Greek Food

Tucson, AZ

Opa! is a popular Greek restaurant in Tucson with a curious name. Because they’re located on Campbell amidst other popular restaurants and bars, I thought perhaps they drafted off the popularity of their neighbors or they featured water slides and pinball games to fulfill the Fun quotient.

I didn’t see a single water slide so I’m still unsure about the Fun part; however, I’m pleased to say that Opa!’s food is great.

This plate of pita and dipping sauces arrived when we sat down

the Greek version of the basket of tortilla chips, I think. The sauces are yogurt/cucumber tzatziki and a bean dip that wasn’t almost hummus but less smooth and more liquid.

They offer Greek beers, mostly light lagers. I got Alfa on the server’s recommendation and liked it.

It reminded me a little of Grolsch with an almost honey like aftertaste.

We ordered two wraps and split them, the falafel and the roasted eggplant

They each came with greek salad and rice.

I LOVED the eggplant, all smoky and chargrilled but was less impressed with the falafel which was dry and crumbly.

Jules and I stayed for hours talking our faces off and the servers didn’t make a single motion to evacuate us and instead just kept refilling our water glasses. I appreciate restaurant staff that don’t get antsy when my dinner stretches out an impossibly long time.

I like Opa! It’s a cool casual place for really decent Greek food and I’d eat dinner there anytime.

I recommend you do the same!
