I had the chicken gyro with fries. The flavor of the gyro was very good. My only issue is that the chicken was a little too dry. The service was decent too.

This is a family-friendly neighborhood restaurant. The service is great, and the food is delicious. Their gyros and pizzas are both must-tries! We're going back to try some of their other offerings.

It was delicious. The gyro and the tzaziki sauce were homemade and close to the European taste. Check it out.

Three of us were craving Greek food and based on TripAdvisor reviews, this establishment was selected. As we were seated, the waitress appeared very cold and not to friendly. We were not read the daily specials as 2 other tables beside were. We ordered a Greek salad, cheese steak and a calzone. All three were very good although I expected... More

The service, food, and authentic is all incredible at Papa’s. It is a little pricey but worth it. The Greek atmosphere helps me taste what it is like in Greece. The Greek music and the chiefs singing like no one is there. It is beautiful. It is a small “hole in the wall” based on location but worth it. The... More

In search of a Mediterranean restaurant for lunch, we located this place on TripAdvisor. It is somewhat difficult to find and is not a place to go for atmosphere. However, if you crave truly outstanding Greek fare, it is worth the search. My wife and I shared hummus and spanikopita appetizers, she a gyro and me a Greek salad with... More

Stopped in here recently with some friends who just moved to the neighborhood. Luckily for them, this place is great. Run by a Greek-American family, this strip mall joint is more than meets the eye. Everything we ordered was delicious. The pizza was surprisingly good as I did not honestly expect anything mildly decent. Sorry I have a pizza bias.... More

Fresh ingredients and tender chicken makes for best Greek salad ever. Husband had gyros and loved it as well. Doesn't look fancy but the food is great and device is friendly.
