Editorial Review

In the strip malls that line Vienna's Maple Avenue, you might miss Skorpios Maggio's Family Restaurant. Don't. The family-owned Greek diner has customers standing in line and filling the tables at lunch, and the gyro seems to be the most popular item. It might be the best gyro I have ever eaten -- with a knife and fork, because it's way too large to be eaten by hand. The strips of lamb and beef are nicely browned and juicy. The homemade cucumber sauce is the perfect complement. Even in the middle of winter, the tomatoes are tasty. The menu includes Greek favorites, such as moussaka and pastitsio, along with a large selection of salads.
