The place was packed when we went for lunch but the had us seated in about 15 minutes. The staff was friendly and the food was great. I like Greek food, but if you don't there are plenty of other choices.

Good food, friendly service but filthy. Booth seats need to be repaced. Everything from wait staff aprons to glass panes in door to the kitchen are in dire need of attention.

We stop here once or twice a year as it is the best place to eat midway between Tucson and Phoenix along Hwy. 79. We had fresh-tasting appetizers (dolmades and cheese plate) and then pita and gyros (of course) and one of us had the...More
