What a great restaurant. This is my second time there and you will not be disappointed. Had the lamb chops, salad and the calamari. Simply amazing. Reminder that they only take cash.

I've been to this place more than I'm willing to admit. I believe they have been around before JC. Do not let the little house fool you, it's one of the best Greek cuisine you'll ever have. The lineups can be ridiculous because they do...More
