We were craving gyros and stopped in to try them! Best meal we have had in a long time! There was so much meat on the warm bread and the sauce was out of this world! Beers were ice cold. The staff and owner made...More

Vegetable lasagna was more like a plate of tomato sauce with very little cheese/Bechamel sauce,and flavorless. Pita breads were doughy.

It may my imagination, but I think this place has gone downhill. I had the spanikopita, which was OK, but nothing special. The potatoes were roasted to the point of almost begin the texture of french fries, and were served with ketchup(!?). My husband had...More
