This was the first time I ever got my chopped steak cooked to absolute perfection. It was truly chopped steak. The mushroom gravy had whole mushrooms. All 4 of us had different dishes that were exactly as "advertised". Service was excellent as well.

Where else are you going to get Liver and Onions? OK, an acquired taste - but what a full menu! Quintessential NJ Greek diner with every combination of meats, vegetables, salads, Greek specialties and desserts. Whatever you want, home cooked feel, friendly family service, and above average diner atmosphere. Just go. Now I'm hungry.

Coming back home from Maine. Rain pouring down for the past three hours and we were stressed. I had a turkey wrap that was excellent but the cole slaw was tasteless. Husband had a turkey burger and fries. The good news was that the rain stopped. and we had a safe drive back home
