Niko Niko’s owner Dimitri Fetokakis recalls driving around town with his parents as a kid, imagining future locations for their family restaurant. It was then that he first fell in love with Memorial City. In 2009, he finally nestled into a home in the area.
For decades, Niko Niko’s has been a legendary staple in Montrose. It is a regular stop for locals and a pilgrimage for many out-of-towners. Over the past few years, the restaurant has expanded to include two smaller locations in Market Square and Pearland. Now, Fetokakis has opened a Niko Niko’s close to home.
The newest location at the corner of Katy Freeway and the Sam Houston Tollway is an 8,000 square-foot, standalone restaurant. A larger kitchen and dedicated bakery allow for an expanded menu. An outdoor area for customers to enjoy on sunny days includes green space for kids and a comfortable patio where parents can supervise while savoring gyros, loukoumades – delicious golden honey balls – and fresh coffee.
Fetokakis aims to make the I-10 location as integral to the area as the Montrose restaurant. He envisions whole families becoming regulars, students coming in after classes and members of the Spring Branch-Memorial Sports Association stopping by after games. Ever true to their Greek heritage, the new Niko Niko’s location is a warm, welcoming place for family and friends to gather and fill up on their renowned Greek dishes.
