Have had lunch there on many occasions. Very generous portions of tasty gyros. I prefer the spicy version, but both are good. The tzatziki cucumber sauce could use a little more garlic and a little less cucumber. I have tried the buffet at lunch -- not much variety, but pretty good . Sometimes it isn't kept very hot. Only issue... More

It was a nice place and the food is good but really expensive for dinner menu. Greek salad has only one olive. Really?

We were on the north side and this restaurant was nearly next door to where we were so we gave it a try. The service was good. Our server even brought us a few small pieces of the spicy lamb meat to see how spicy it was. I ordered a 1/2 spicy Gyro while my wife ordered the non-spicy. The... More

This has to be one of the strangest Greek/Mediterranean restaurants I have ever been too. From the moment the misguided waitress ushered us in it went downhill from there. I'm sure the food would have been better if not served by such a bitter and unhappy person. I had the mixed grill was flavorful but they must have put a... More

What a pleasant place. We love the food, and sat outside this evening with our dog to keep us company. The service is quick and our waiter is extremely attentive and polite. The food is plentiful and oh so good.

My wife visited here last week for lunch and raved about the chicken salad she ate. We decided to eat there on a Friday night for dinner. The place was not crowded but the folks that were there lingered and stayed there the entire time we had our meal. Very comfortable and relaxed setting. When we first arrived the music... More

Smaller store-front restaurant with very pleasant customer service. The food was delicious, but the appetizers were on the tinier size. The prices were reasonable and the atmosphere agreeable.
