visited yesterday (Sunday) with a friend for lunch. Service was extremely poor, i.e., slow from ordering and super slow from receiving the food and then and my bowl of soup was served lukewarm at best.More

Overpriced, crowded, bland, extremely pretentious for a simple fast food joint. Think Moe's Mexican grill but for tasteless soccer moms

Fresh ingredients. Fruit was fresh. Prices are reasonably. Won't go away hunger. Worth the stop. Great hand made chocolate cake.

I come here often, for a chain its pretty good. Food is Greek Mediterranean. I often order just a Greek salad with chicken, but steak kabobs are good too.

I like to get the chicken salad; sometimes I doctor it with pecans, or apple, or extra celery. I liked the pimento cheese until I got a pint that had so much hot sauce in it, you could not taste the cheese. When I called...More

My new favorite selection is the protein plate. It's A tender piece of marinated Mediterranean seasoned cooked chicken breast served on the fabulous homemade slaw. Love the feta cheese in the slaw!
