This is the only Purple Onion location we frequent. We've tried the others, but they just don't live up to the standard of this location. We always get the same menu item here (chicken kabob plate), but it's consistently good. We sincerely wish the falafel...More

We grabbed a couple of wraps which were delicious. The atmosphere of the place was so so but we were getting to go so didn't matter. Most things on the menu were $10 and up if you want entree style orders.

I love the Purple Onion. Great Greek food and it is not very expensive. I would suggest anyone go visit.

I had the gyro plate. I wondered if it would be enough food for me and actually it was more than I could eat. It wasn't great tasting but pretty good. Well worth the $14. The building looks like a run down fast food joint....More
