Kostas is essentially a dive bar with some pretty good Greek food that tends to be filled with groups of people looking for a place to start their Saturday night bar crawl. So whether it’s the first stop of the night or the last, order some fries and a gyro for the table. It also has a back patio that people usually skip over in favor of the one a few doors down at Frankford Hall, which means more room for you and all your friends.
