I had a gyro and I couldn't even eat the whole sandwich. Tons of meat. The people were extremely nice and helpful. I would go there again.

After reading the other reviews, I am baffled by how horrible our experience was. We visited the place around 4 PM, so perhaps we just were served the dried out, oily leftovers by a pushy man trying to make a sale before closing shop. If...More

Been coming to M.E.C. for over 10 years now. I always get a "sampler plate" because everything looks so good. My son and I would meet down here once a month and eat lunch. His favorite: Spannokopitas. You have to get there early for these...More

This is a food booth in the market area. The service is very friendly and the food offers a good value for what you get. It is tasty and on nice days, you can eat outside on benches.

Good mild flavors, fair-sized servings, and interesting recipes for babaganoush, hummus, and other dishes make this a nice variation from all the fried food establishments nearby.
