My Big Fat Greek Trailer To Open Eatery in Upcoming Downtown Food Hall

Published

on

The family behind the popular My Big Fat Greek Trailer, will open an authentic Greek eatery in the upcoming food and brew hall, Port of Call. Bapkó Grill House, pronounced var-ko, plans to open this fall.

Owner David Leon will continue to offer the authentic Greek dishes his food truck serves, but with some variation and additional menu items. Among the offerings will be spit-roasted pork and chicken gyros, souvlaki, salads, and more.

“Being an American in a Greek family for just shy of eight years has been an eye opener to Hellenic (Greek) culture, which is known to be one of the oldest on Earth,” said owner David Leon. “Much of the authentic, Hellenic heritage has been lost or diluted outside of Greece, but the Greeks’ love for food has remained. With the opening of Bapkó Grill House, we will revitalize that aspect of Greek culture in Charleston. My father-in-law and patriarch of the family, Chef Konstantinos Kakaziotis, will be joining us at Bapkó as well. If one Greek word could summarize the food we are bringing to Charleston, it would be αυθεντικός (afthentikós) or in English – authentic.”

Bapkó Grill House will be one of four eateries at the new Port of Call food and brew hall on South Market Street. The space formerly occupied by Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. has been completely transformed on both the interior and exterior, and will now feature three bars and a beer garden alongside four Charleston food vendors.

The eatery plans to begin serving customers this October.
