I ordered the smoked salmon omelette with feta and it was probably the best omelette I have ever had. Would definitely recommend it!

Good for breakfast/brunch/burgers. Beyond that I don't know. I'd been there before. Good for groups with diverse dining desires.

This is a nice neighborhood restaurant that is open most of the time. Service is always excellent and there are many menu choices - Greek as well as American. I love the souvlaki salad. You can get it plain or with meat additions (even lamb chops - which my husband loves). Portions are a good sixe and coffee refills come... More

Went to dinner with the family and looking forward to some good greek food. The saganaki was gooey goodness! Instead of frying the cheese as is tradition, this was melted in the broiler. My husband and I decided to split the specialty platter in order to get a little taste of everything. The mousaka was good, the beef Souvlaki was... More

My first time ever there what a great experience. Went there for a late breakfast on Sunday Morning/Afternoon. My friend who lives in Buffalo picked the place to eat. We got there around 12 noon and we were greeted by very friendly and upbeat employees. We had to wait about 10 minutes for a table. Once seated a waitress was... More

The open chicken souvlaki is the best around. Fresh mixed greens - not just romaine like most places, the usual onion and tomato, and here's the best part, light "fluffy" feta cheese! Not your typical feta chunks, it's light (both in taste and texture) and fluffy. The greek dressing is very good but you have to really shake it up... More

I had chicken soulvacki for lunch. I was disappointed with the salad it seemed to have been missing a lot of the major ingredients even though i did not request this. The taziki was lacking in flavor.
