The exterior of the restaurant threw us off a bit but don't let this discourage you. We were immediately greeted when walking in and promptly served. Very comfortable, friendly atmosphere. We ordered the lamb gyros, fries, and the kids chicken tenders. Everything was made fresh, and was delicious. My only reason for giving this 4 stars instead of 5 was... More

My husband and I went there for lunch today. We are not locals. I had a vegetarian platter: spanakopita, greek salad, and hummus. My husband chicken kabobs with rice, tossed salad, and hummus. The food was excellent. We also had enough for a filling lunch and are getting ready to eat the rest for dinner as well as some pistachio... More

The outside of Goodies is nothing exceptional - if you weren't told about it, you might drive by it. Inside is not much better - it is a diner style restaurant with oddly matched tables and chairs and eclectic decor. But the food is really good and plenty of it! We all had the chicken kebob- served with hummus on... More

We drove from Quebec City to Syracuse. Tired and hungry we went to this restaurant for a take out. The order was simple and we were told it shouldn't take much time. The young girl helping us was friendly but the owner didn't greet or acknowledge us. We waited for more than 35 minutes for hummus, baba ganoush and salad... More

If you like Greek food you MUST patronize this intimate restaurant. It may be a bit out of your way, it BUT it is worth a trip to your GPS to find it! (It was actually only 5 minutes from our hotel!) We ate several entrees and could find no fault with anything. The prices were low end but the... More

This is as unprepossessing a place as you're likely to eat at, at least in North America. The location is convenient, but the parking lot is rough and the building looks like it's 100 years old (not in a good way). Inside, the place is small (seats 24 +/-) and the ambience evokes the Middle East, mostly Lebanon. My wife... More

This is a small restaurant with really good Mediterranean food. First the owners were very friendly. The homemade hummas was delicious as were the lamb and chicken shish kabobs. I'd recommend this restaurant to anyone!

This is a small family owned and operated restaurant. Very charming owner that visits with you. Wonderful waitress Mariah! Excellent food. Very clean. They do not have any alcohol in the restaurant but they allow you to bring in your own bottle of wine which is a great money saver! Very reasonable prices. I live right down the street and... More
