Extra friendly staff! We had bacon and fried egg sandwich and a Mediterranean gyro. Both were very good and a fair price. Wish they were open for dinner.

A very classic diner-style restaurant serving Greek Gyro's and Baklava, plus the typical American dishes of hamburger, the rotating 'daily specials' along with excellent salads. Very much a local patronage diner! The food is very, very good. It is a local, no frills diner that has been around for years, and when the family generation currently running establishment retires, the... More

I couldn't tell you all of the amazing things about this little restaurant. Located in Sharonville since the 1970's - always family owned - it is a quaint and delicious place to grab a gyro and fries, burger, sandwich or the daily special. I highly recommend the gyro with greek fries - sweet tea - baklava. Best Lunch you will... More

The beef and bacon double decker is the best! This is a great place for the whole family. They make you feel right at home. We've been coming here for years.

I ordered the classic gyro combo for 8.50. The gryo was pretty meh, pre-packaged (or at least pre-formed) gyro meat, with a decent sauce. Fries are pretty clearly dropped from a package into a fryer, but I never expect handmade fries anyways. All and all it was filling and not the worst I have had, not the best, and it... More

Have gone past this place a million times and finally stopped in. Great turkey and bacon double decker with Swiss, lettuce tomato and mayo - tasted very fresh. Maria was a fun and efficient server! Lots of regulars. I will go back!

This place is a staple of Sharonville. If you took it away, it would begin to unravel. Pay no mind to the fact it shares a parking lot with a funeral home. It's only a measure to keep yuppies and hipsters out. It's clean as a pin. And the fact the restrooms only have outside access it another oddity to... More
