By a fluke my husband and I went for lunch. The food was fresh and perfectly prepared. I got a lamb kebab with well seasoned, tender large chunks of lamb. It was a large portion since it comes with a delicious side salad. The gyro...More

This restaurant has been here for years and serves a varied, changing menu of always tasty food. It is pleasant for lunch or dinner, the restaurant is small but the tables are well spaced. I have always had a good meal.
