A bit of a dichotomy between having a “fast food” feel for the food and prices but not so much for the quickness of the preparation and service provided. Family tends to prefer going to and dining at the restaurant, since it takes some time...More

The food is good. Many different specials offered weekly. The only downside is their service. It's slow if you dine inside. Their drive through service is slowest I've ever had to endure. Doesn't matter what time of day. Long wait even if you are only...More

They changed a .69 cent visa charge and the food is high priced. And don't ask for any food that has onions they give you a whole onion bulb. $20 for burger fry and drink.

Have tried this place 3 times now...and I will not again- hot dog- meh, chicken pita-cold and dry, fries- too salty and undercooked.

Yum! Chicken pita was fantastic. Cooked perfectly with Greek spices. Also, always fun to get the little free ice cream cone. Very good!
