I have been visiting this Greek family restaurant for many years. I've had Greek food in different restaurants in many different locations - this is the best! Fresh, flavorful - I've never tried something I don't love. Try it!

This place is in a strip center in the corner. Gets crowded on weekends for dinner. It's kind of small, but that's good because it doesn't get load when full. Prices are reasonable. Has real Greek dishes.

The hummus is the best anywhere I can't pronounce the names of the foods, but everything is freshly prepared and served right away...since everything is made to ordr there is a little bit of a wait for your food but it is worth it....If you know Greek food I am quite sure you will really like it...if you don't know...
