It's a family run business. The food is great and the service is personal and friendly. I have never had a bad meal and have tried most of the menu

What a great little place, personal service by the owner and always excellent food. I regularly have the gyro Greek salad but everything that my friends order also gets great reviews.

Great Greek well prepared. The ambiance is minimal, but the food is great. Take out is an option. We always enjoy our visits.

Many choices and GREAT food. Small and fast food feel inside, but still comfortable. Very reasonable prices. You don't even have to like Greek food to get a great meal.

We come here regularly. Great food, great service. Jad is the friendly owner. The Gyros platter is great. The pork and chicken souvlaki platters are also amazing. Greek salad is tangy and right on. Everything is awesome A lot of take out also. Greek wines and beers are nice. We recommend this place.

This place has Reader awards galore hanging by the front door and for good reason. For a hole in the wall the food is exceptional. This is no fancy place but the same guys have been there for a very long time and they have their business down to a science you can tell. It's pretty darn hot in there... More

I love going to JK's. Low overhead, simple atmosphere and great food. The owner is so nice and genuinely wants to ensure his customers are happy. He remembers everyone who comes back. Anyone should check them out!!!

J K's Greek cafe is an unassuming, small restaurant that prepares traditional Greek cuisine very well. The portions are quite adequate and the quality is excellent. We have had the owner cater a party with several of his specialties. One of the best deals is purchase a whole Greek chicken to take home for only $7.95. You can't get that... More
