It's telling that among Stanton's many fenced-in, barren plazas, mom-and-pop restaurants such as the Mad Greek are withstanding hard economic times. Since 1981, this local staple has reliably cranked out greasy Greek goods. Order a gyro combo plate, and you'll get a sandwich stuffed with thinly shaved beef and lamb slivers. There are also hefty plates of kofta kebab or chicken souvlaki. And who doesn't appreciate fried zucchini, onion rings and mushrooms being dubbed a “veggie combo”? Enjoy the old-school menu while it lasts: The owner was overheard saying a revamp has been long overdue. Maybe the decadent new baklava shake is a good sign of things to come.
