Worth the wait for a seat! Just love it! You could close your eyes and just point to any item and never be disappointed. Tiny place so be sure to look on West side if the street !

The gyro was excellent, and the potatoes were okay, but Arde's wife said they could not cook something special for my friend who has food allergies except for a salad. When we complained to Arde, he yelled at me right there in the restaurant. The...More
