Well, it's about time Mr. Souvlaki, Mykonos, and Mamas were busted for being Filthy-DIRTY, and German roach infested! These 3 restaurants have ALWAYS been filthy, this is why sooo many SMART locals STAY far away from eatting there, I myself know for a fact, they re-serve bread, from table to table to save a buck, WHO KNOWS WHAT ELSE THESE THREE FILTHY GREEK RESTAURANTS "RE-SERVE"????? YUCK, what a thought!!!!!! just look at the source! You CANNOT blame the employees, it IS the owners responsibility to make SURE all is clean,up to code, and ROACH free.......... Can you imagine what their homes must look like????? A story like this is enought to make ANYONE throw up! Maybe all 3 owners can get together and open the famous land mark that used to be PAPAS', and name it OUR BIG FAT ROACH INFESTED GREEK RESTAURANT!.........

I saw it on "Dirty Dining" channel 10 action news....... The board of health went to these restaurants and busted them for critical code violtions.......... in '06 Mr. Souvlakie was SHUT DOWN for being INFESTED with German roaches, the restaurant owner however, had a sign on the door, that they were closed for vacation, yeah right, sounds to me like they were going to a "ROACH MOTEL" !!!!!!!!!!

We just came from there and there was a massive roach on the wall right next to our table. My girlfriend went in the restroom and said it was so smelly.

Yesterday late morning we went to George's Breakfast Station
600 S Pinellas Ave, Tarpon Springs, FL 34689

Corner of MLK and Alternate 19 (S Pinellas Avenue)
We ordered our food and the waitress brought the drinks. We noticed the glass was not that clean and we looked around and the restaurant was far from clean but we figured we would see what the food was like when we got it. The waitress brought the food and we just started eating when we looked down at the floor and noticed a cockroach walking right by our table!! We got up and explained we cannot eat this after seeing that. The owner came out from the back and said he sprays every month. Upon talking to him at the register we could see in the kitchen. It was disgusting the floors were black even though it appeared to be light color tiles back there. There were food on the floor under shelves that appeared to be there a while without being cleaned up. The counters were dirty and old food stuck to it. This place should not be open in this condition. Please investigate this place and bring this to light for people that do not realize what they are eating here.
