Samos Restaurant in Baltimore's Greek Town

On our way to see a Japanese band named Envy in Baltimore, my boyfriend and I stopped by a Greek place recommended by a friend.  We both love Mediterranean flavors, so we had to try out Samos after my friend raved about the food.
I didn't even know that Baltimore had a Greek Town, but judging by the lines of people waiting for a table at 6 pm on a Saturday, this is a popular spot.  It is cash-only, but there is an ATM near the restrooms.

Trio of Homemade Greek Spreads $9.75
Olive tapenade, roasted red pepper hummus, Melitzanosalata (roasted eggplant with garlic, lemon and olive oil).  My favorite was the eggplant but my better half loved the hummus. 
 Hot pita wedges.  So good with all of the spreads.
 Small Greek Salad $6.50.  (There's a large size, but this was perfect to share.)
The famous salad dressing comes on the side in a bottle.
Spanikopita $5.75
The flaky phyllo dough encased a nice mixture of spinach and feta cheese. 
Gyro Pita Wrap with everything $5.50.
Samos is closed Sundays, has carryout and is BYOB.  They do not take reservations, and they do become busy, but the Greek food is worth the wait.
