There are certainly a lot of people to count, with just under thirty thousand calling Niles home according to the most recent census!

MYKONOS GREEK RESTAURANT
We love Greek food, and Mykonos Greek Restaurant has been serving up consistently tasty and authentic Greek favorites for as long as we can remember. It's nice to start off with a flaming saganaki, and follow that up with some skordalia, taramosalata, and perhaps a nice crema carmele. We make it a point to come to Mykonos whenever we don't have time to travel all the way to Greektown. For a taste of everything, try the combination plate! So good and such an easy choice. Great service too.

Booby's Charcoal Rib is a Niles essential! This place is a Greek-owned barbecue restaurant that has so many great things for you to enjoy on the menu.

Barbecued half chicken anyone? Oh it's to die for. If you haven't tried Booby's yet, it's about time that you do. There's a reason that this place has been in business for so long. Very highly recommended!
