The food here is quick and delicious. I like that it is also ethnic (Lebanese/ Middle Eastern) and offers good value for the price. The shawarma is my favorite meal.

At lunchtime this is a hopping place. The place is crowded but the food is good. The service is fast and seats open as fast as the line moves. Great gyros. Good atmosphere. Good times.

I can't believe it has taken me so long to eat here. I love Mediterranean cuisine and this place delivers. Simple menu, but hard to pick because it all looks so good. And the baklava, oh man, awesome doesn't even begin to describe it.

Food was hot, tasty, and authentic. Service was friendly and hospitable. I didn't want a full serving of hummus because the plates were quite generous so the cashier offered me a small cup for free. I highly recommend stopping in.
