After much waiting and months of anticipation, new Greek restaurant Fat Fork is finally open in Mississauga.

The restaurant opened in February at 2200 Dundas St East, completely renovating the space formerly occupied by Muddy Duck.

It’s a family-owned joint run by brothers Nick and Gus Danicas and their father Peter Danicas. The three worked at another popular Greek restaurant in Mississauga for about 20 years, but their passion for good food eventually led them to branch out into their very own restaurant concept.

The Danicas family is a beloved part of the community – it’s not uncommon to see old friends and regular customers stop by just to see them – and they’re excited to continue bringing smiles to people’s faces at Fat Fork.

Fat Fork is best known for their delicious and filling souvlaki dinners: Your choice of their famous pork or chicken, served with rice, roast potatoes, Greek salad, bread rolls and their original tzatziki.

They also serve mouthwatering steaks made with AAA Angus Beef, and a variety of charbroiled burgers including the original hamburger, cheeseburger, bacon burger, and their famous Fat Burger, which is stacked high with two beef patties, cheese and bacon. All of their burgers are made with tender and juicy beef patties that are kept fresh, never frozen.

Other classic items on the menu include sandwiches (like their chicken souvlaki on a bun), fish and chips, salads, fries, and poutine.

Two things are original to Fat Fork: Their extremely flavourful tzatziki recipe which was developed by Peter some 35 years ago, and their Greek salad dressing, which is also a family recipe.

Fat Fork also boasts an espresso bar that’s ready to serve up some of the best coffee around, among other refreshing drinks.

The restaurant is a prime location for meals with friends and family, with its comfortable interior giving it the atmosphere of a modern diner. The large windows allow tons of sunlight into the spacious and open-concept dining area, making the restaurant feel warm and inviting.

However, the restaurant itself isn’t the only place to enjoy their food – Fat Fork also offers catering, and is ready to bring their delicious menu to your next event.

There was much excitement and anticipation in the months leading up to the restaurant’s opening, with Nick and Gus regularly posting updates on their social media pages under the hashtag “Project Souvlaki”.

“We know you’ve all been waiting and we’re so excited to show you, eat with you, and laugh with you,” they wrote on Instagram. “Our family has put our heart and soul into this restaurant. Thank you to everyone who has helped us get here.”
