What an amazing family and veterans owned small business. The owners treated us, as first time customers, as if we'd been eating there for years. They have an easy and comfortable rapport with regulars without sacrificing warm hospitality toward newcomers. Even with all that, the...More

Great food, the people there are so very nice. The Lady at the front called at least 10+ people by name as they came in the door. She was so very nice. This place gets busy but worth it.

Response from artickiss | Reviewed this property |
Prices are very reasonable any where from 5 to about 9 per meal. They serve Mediterranean, think: shiskabobs, falafel, gyros, rice. But they also serve up french fries, burgers, dogs, sandwiches. Pretty good food.
