I don't know who Nick is, but I fell in love with his chicken. Rice was excellent as well. Others ordered gyros with fries and nearly had to be carried out because they were so full (and happy).

The service was not very attentive due to too many tables on a Saturday night. The lamb dishes were unimaginative and tasted like they had been stood back in the kitchen for days. The salad came without lettuce I couldn't believe it.

I came on Open Street Day and went inside for lunch. I had the Greek salad with salmon. The mixed greens were fresh and the salmon and grilled vegetables were great with the olives, peppers and feta cheese. Service was good. Exactly what I imagined!

The atmosphere and staff are wonderful. Just a great place to sit enjoy family. The food is always well presented and excellent. Gyro platter and a Greek salad is always my choice out of habit.
