No. 97: Samos Restaurant

A cash-only policy, no reservations and a carry-out atmosphere never stop crowds from pouring in. The food is simple, robust and hugely satisfying. Portions are generous, except in cases where they're overly so. Samos' game isn't culinary drama but satisfying diners with good Greek cooking. • Restaurant info.: Samos, 600 Oldham St., Greektown, 410-675-5292, www.samosrestaurant.com
