Although the place doesn’t look nice from the outside, their food and service are great!! I love being outside when there’s nice weather.

My husband and I stumbled upon this hidden gem one Sunday afternoon when we could not decide what to have for lunch. All he knew he wanted was steak, but we didn't wanna pay an arm and a leg for a steak dinner. This restaurant...More

We stopped here after reading reviews and I would not go back. The place was not the cleanest and the food was just okay. I love Mediterranean cuisine because it is normally so clean and healthy, but the salad was pooled in oil and the...More

I entered the place and it was pretty dirty and nothing special. You can barely see the guy at the cash register. I heard the Gyro plate was good. I ordered it with double meat for only an extra $2.95, which is a bargain. The...More

The food is absolutely wonderful! They have some of the best wings in town. I recommend the gyros or if you want a little bit of everything try the sampler plate!

Insomnia Café is not swanky. No valet parking or wine lists. What it is, is GOOD. Freshly-brewed tea with mint. Marinated, tender pieces of chicken in the gyros, house-recipe sauces that are delicious, steak tips that put a steakhouse to shame and you can even...More

This place may look a little off the wall with the hookahs, but the food is hot, fresh, and generous portions. Hummus is outstanding, gyros are big and filling.

Sketchy is my thang! But this place looks super-sketch. The food, though. Hot, fresh, tasty. You might see weird-ish stuff happening and think it's some kind of shady deal, but it is not. That'd be a guy ordering a hookah. Hookah-smoking takes place outside, and...More
