Akropolis Meat Market has been a part of the Astoria community for 40 years. The company began with an immigrants dream far away in Greece, with Gus ďPopĒ Gatzonis. He was a butcher in Athens, Greece and came to the United States in 1954 with dreams of owning his own business, the American Dream. Naturally, Astoria was his location of choice with its thriving Greek Community. The tradition continued when John, Popís son, joined his fatherís business and continued the tradition, planting deeper roots in the community and continuing to provide customers with the same delicious products- prime steaks, choice chops, juicy cage-free chickens, and choice free-range lamb and much, much more!
  
John and Pop worked together for twenty years. Today, Akropolis is still run by father and son, John and Popís grandson, Gus, with three generations of Gatzonisí serving you as community butchers. We invite you to experience the highest quality meat products at competitive prices coupled with old world service and flavor that will have you coming back for more!
