Growing up in a large, Greek family of restaurateurs, Nick Anthony spent much of his youth handpicking fresh, wholesome produce and other goods from farmers' markets with his mom and dad for the family restaurants. At at even earlier age, he was cooking in the kitchen with his Grandmother, Yia Yia Katina and watching his Grandfather, Papouli Tom, wash dishes in his Manhattan Café in downtown San Antonio. Today, Nick carries on a legacy of traditional cooking and warm hospitality with the highest quality standards in his own restaurant, Papouli's Greek Grill.
Papouli's offers authentic, Pan-Mediterranean cuisine with the original flavors of Greece and other Mediterranean countries in a fast-casual setting. Award-winning menu items range from timeless family recipes to contemporary, vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free dishes. Nationally-recognized healthy children's options, complete with fruit and whole grains meet the needs of today’s parents.
The Greek culture embraces family, friends and time spent together. Come grab a table and enjoy life (and delicious food) to the fullest while creating memories with loved ones. We welcome you and your family… cheers!
Our mission is to make sure each guest feels at home in our restaurants. We strive for excellence in everything we do, from our carefully selected, heart-healthy and delicious Mediterranean menu options to our family-friendly atmosphere and unmatched customer service. When you dine at Papouli’s, you are part of the Anthony family, and we want you to feel welcome.
We currently have four locations throughout San Antonio, Texas. Our vision is to share our heart-healthy Mediterranean dining concept with more communities in San Antonio and beyond, and to continue developing leaders and partners in the communities we serve.
CONNECTING TO THE COMMUNITY
There is much more to doing business than providing a good or service. Our objective is to look inside our people, staff and guests, and find the connection that is more than just the promised product. We want our guests and staff to experience an emotional, physical, and even psychological connection with Papouli’s.
Papouli’s has developed three initiatives to engage our patrons, staff and the community:
• The Race to Remember
An annual 5k walk/run from which all proceeds benefit The Alzheimer’s Association. Learn more >>
• Eat Fit to Live
A program that provides consumers with nutritional data on the Papouli’s menu, the Mediterranean Diet, and a general healthy lifestyle guidance via our Eat Fit to Live blog.
• The Grandfather Project
Through this initiative, our consumers share their family traditions and recipes, tying directly in to how Papouli’s Greek Grill was developed. We love to hear about our guests’ papoulis and fond family memories. – more details coming soon!
