We dropped in for a late lunch; didn't want the fried pub food and burgers everywhere else. Great hummus appetizer. My wife had the special: chicken with Greek cilantro sauce and I had the gyros plate with Greek salad. All of it was excellent. The special was very good and the lamb was tender and beautifully seasoned. The salad was... More

Fair prices and food was ok...bout average. We only had the hamburgers. Other choices might have been better.

My husband and I visited the Mediterranean Chef this evening and I have joined trip advisor to write a review as the food was excellent, great service and unbelievable value for money. The gyros are amazing and the French fries are the best we've had. Jad our server was very nice and attentive. Excellent, fresh, good food at great prices.... More

We tried the falafel appetizer, gyro supreme (chicken, beef, lamb), spanakopita, baklava, tiramisu, and Turkish coffee. With a Dr Pepper also our total was about $40. Everything was delicious, hot, just as expected. I got my fiance to try some of these things for the first time and he was impressed. I had something to compare it to. Far better... More

We have been here a couple of times and I love their gyros. Their Tzatziki sauce is awesome. I have been to other Greek restaurants and the tzatziki was bland with no flavor. Here they have added garlic and cucumber and accompanied by some delicious pita bread. The gyros are large and the meat is flavorful. I have read some... More

I enjoyed my meal but I wish I had paid more attention to the menu, I didn't realize there'd be pickles on my falafel wrap! It was still tasty and the pita is soft and fluffy. The hummus and baklava was also very good! I will definitely be back!

Delicious and fresh. Lived here by entire life and finally decided to try it. We sat outside because it seemed a little dated inside but the sun was going down and it was cool. Service was fast and food was hot and good.

Some of the worst mediterranean food I've ever had. Overcooked freezerburned shrimp, yesterday's crusty potatoes that have been sitting under a heat lamp all day, watery tzatziki with no flavor, etc. Terrible experience all around. Don't eat here.
