We heard a lot about this place and we were not disappointed. The Greek salad with chicken kabobs was very tender and had great flavor. The salad was served with the warm homemade pita bread...very tasty. The veggie gyro was delicious. I can't wait to go back!

We have been coming here for years. The people that own the establishment are extremely hardworking and cordial. The food is always consistently good. Moma makes it. Stop in. You are sure to have a satisfying meal and learna little bit about our town.

I had a Hero ( weak spot for me) the meat was tasty, not over spiced and not grainy, nice tomato slices, some onion and... More

Wow. I came in today for the first time, to pick up lunch for my husband and I, and I couldn't be more pleased. I heard good things about this popular lunch spot, but learned today, that they also serve dinner on certain week nights. I ordered a combination Greek salad/spinach pie plate, and a gyro each for my husband... More
