Hillbilly Greek

The sign on the door at Dinos on U.S. 221 north of Willis says "A Hillbilly Greek Restaurant."

It is.

Dinos is Floyd County's newest eatery, a diner-like spot right on the road near Willis Elementary School that offers a mix of old-fashioned American food (hamburgers, cheesburgers, steak sandwiches) with Greek fare (gyros, etc.).

Run by a Greek immigrant who lived in Chicago before moving to the area, Dinos is unpretentious, straightforward and serves good, well-prepared and tasty dishes.

I stopped there with a client Wednesday and my Italian beef sandwich was large, juicy and delicious. Our schedule didn't permit time to talk at length with the owner or take photos but I plan to go back soon, sample more of his fare and learn what brought him to our corner of the world.
