We shared the sample platter appetizer and the beef and chicken salad. The hummus was amazing, as was the salad. The salad dressing had flavors I had never tasted before - it was phenomenal. The place is a little run down, but there are beautiful...More

Loves the gyros. Wife and kids didn't care for their food. I on the other hand enjoyed it. Great little spot cheap parking on the street.

This is one of the best Gyros I have eaten. The sauce was not overpowering and the spices just right. The chicken, beef, and lamb were delicious. The pita was just right. I would have like a larger gyro, but this one sure was tasty.

We enjoyed the food. Where we live has a lack of true mediterranean and middle eastern cuisine. I found this quite enjoyable. Even my wife ate off of my plate. The Tzatziki sauce is very good and the hummus is definitely worth it. I had...More

I’d like Middle Eastern food in the restaurant had good reviews, so I thought I would try it. Nothing matched the reviews. My sandwich was dry, I waited a long time before they even spoke to me, and had to order water twice. But the...More

Hi We don't provide a parking since we are on the Main Street It's $1 per hour on the main road or you can use the public parking lots which usually cheaper if you plan on staying longer in town.
