All small mostly take out place. Some seating available. Very good ribs, roasted chicken, steak sandwiches and soups. My favorite salad is their cole slaw. Enough to choose from so that you can satisfy everyone's wants.

The steak sandwich here is superb. Served on Gonella bread, it is tasty and reasonably priced. Add the fact that they have many other tasty dishes, including an absolutely excellent gyros sandwich, and you have a real winner here!!
