This is by far my favorite restaurant. Unfortunately, I am two hours away. But I DO make it a stop every time I am in the area. It has been over a year, but I will be there at the end of April 2018 again....More

I stopped in for a quick lunch. The service was good, and the food was tasty. I really enjoyed the lentil soup. The gyro meat was the presliced strips which was not my favorite. It was well seasoned, and was at least lamb meat which...More

The food is delicious. The lunch prices are extremely reasonable. You get more than enough food. The sandwich platters came with a cup of soup, that was homemade yummy. The platter has the " sandwich" and a choice of salad, fries, or pilaf. The salad...More

You know it's an authentic restaurant when you are greeted in Greek. It's a bit of a step back in time style wise when visiting, but the food is worth it. The ambiance has an old world charm. Plus occasional belly dancing shows.
