Best neighborhood authentic Greek food you can get. Greek salad, spanakopita, gyros, tsatsiki, Greek fries can't be beat.

We came here with some friends on their recommendation. There were 9 of us and they accommodated our large group right away. For the little kids they brought a slice of cheese and some crackers. They also allowed us to share a burger among the kids. The meals were HUGE. Be careful what you order and be ready to take... More

Wow! I have the gyro dinner plate and the Maria fries and I ate the whole thing! Clean plate club once again! Service was wonderful! Please remember it's CASH only!!! That almost was a problem but we were able to pull together the tab -- had to go back and leave a tip for our waitress!!

Simple, yet plentiful menu of classic Greek dishes at very affordable prices. Great for Take-Out or dining in. Community atmosphere and friendly staff add to the positive experience. Great baklava!

Often a place we go to with friends. Very amiable service; usually pretty fast. Greek chicken and fries is amazing. Salads good too. Also the gyro. Limited drink selection, but some decent wines and beers usually available. Good value.

We ate here on a Sat. Afternoon, too early for a normal dinner. We all enjoyed our selections which went from Shrimp, to chicken, soup, salad, sandwich and a drink. Good service, good food and the tab with tip was $40.00 for the four of us.

We had a nice Saturday night dinner here with friends who have been dining here for years. We loved the quality of the food and wine, especially with the prices and quantity. Our waitress was friendly and knowledgeable. Cash only. We will be back and recommend this for those looking for value and quality.

Quite disappointed to find a mediocre restaurant with s slap-happy waitstaff delivering pedestrian food. An ugly dining room. Enough food to full your stomach but rough eating in a rough environment.

A local restaurant with some really outstanding Greek food. Very pleasant inside with so nice servers. Try the gyros, souvlaki, a wonderful very generous Greek salad(with lots of feta) and the very best Greek fries you've ever had. Chunky fries covered in a sauce of white wine, lemon and herbs. If you're in the area the fries are reason enough... More
