The 'Greek Freak' has been in Milwaukee nearly six years, and in that time he's found some places that make the 414 seem a little closer to home.

Antetokounmpo says his favorite spot for Greek food in Milwaukee is Omega on 27th St. 

Omega's menu ranges from American breakfast options to Italian dinners, but their Greek-specific dishes include lamb chops, chicken shish kabob, spinach pies and more. 

"Or I wait for my Mom to cook me Greek food," he added. 

So, it seems our beloved Oakland Gyros isn't the number one spot for authentic Greek food according to Giannis.

The Bucks' All-Star also said he's touched by how many Greek-American fans gather to support him at NBA arenas across the United States when the Bucks come to town. 

"I feel really good when I see that," Giannis said. "I'm very, very happy that I can make them proud. It's a great honor to be able to bring Greeks to the stadium and for them to have something that makes them happy, something that they can rally around."
