We have been going here for years. It is reliable, simple Greek food. Reasonably priced with parking in a free city garage across the street. Friendly servers makes this a nice place to catch a meal.

I used to work in area. We often come here for lunch. My favorites are egg lemon drop soup, Athenian chicken (crispy only) and lamb shank..... they are good! I often go back there for a good meal when in Chicago.
