Have now been several times. Initially thinking it a FF store to pick up gyros. Not so. Their Babaganoush is terrific, the lamb sausage is great. Don't go just for gyros, try everything on the menu, they will cook it up for you.

We visited Cedar Grill for lunch during the week. The place was busy but the meal came out very quickly and there were plenty of tables. The chicken shawarma with rice was great.

The food is great! The portions were of a good size. It is quite reasonable too. The only problem was the rice tasted too much like tumeric, in the chicken kabob platter
