I'll gladly wait for a fresh meal any day if the week. It probably tool about 15 or 20 minutes but it was worth it. Ordered the gyro and couldn't even think about finishing it! Cute little place with great food!!

Interesting place. You order at the front counter and there is a glass display case featuring most of the cold sides - tabouli, salad, etc. Once you order, you go an sit in the dining room, which is very nicely decorated and very clean. There...More
