Small restaurant with a few tables on inside and out but good food is why people come. We ate in but watched many carry outs go out the door. We had gyro sandwiches which were some of the best we have eaten. I also had a bowl of lemony chicken/rice soup which I liked very much, my husband's taste was... More

Great gyros and greek salads. I think the owner if this small restaurant is always there and you can tell that he really cares about the preparation of the food. Always fresh and tasty. Always!!

I am a great fan of Greek food. After a recent golf game nearby this restaurant, we were hungry, and went for the local cuisine rather than travelling to eat a "sure bet". My fiancé and I were surprived to be served a very good Greek salad and pitas at the Hungry Greek. I said "with exception" above, because they... More

When you have a hankering for Greek food and don't want to dive a distance, this place is great. Food is always good and service is always friendly. Their Gyro combos are wonderful and don't forget desert!

This is the only greek place i know where they cook everything on a wood fired grill. Any of the grilled chicken dishes are incredible. I usually get the Chicken pita or the chicken caesar pita. But the gyro is great too. I also like the salmon pita which is no longer on the menu but they will make it... More

We had a group of five people including two kids. As we all know, kids can be picky so we weren't sure if they'd be cool with Greek food. They loved it as much as we did. I'm Armenian and the food is so similar to Greek food that it reminds me of when I was a kid. However, it... More

A good 'go to' for quick and delicious. Ordering take away was only 10 minutes. Try the gyro and soup. The spinach pie is delicious. I would recommend it.

Stopped by here today for a quick lunch and it's definitely a step up from fast food, little more expensive but for a quick meal not to bad.

Our "go to" for arriving home late from work, wanting dinner at home and something healthier than fast food. The staff is very friendly, the prices good and the portions are large. We visit at least once a month and found out recently, so do our daughter and son-in-law with our two young grandchildren.
