The Family Restaurant has hearty food at a good price and delicious deserts - especially the milk pudding. The chicken kabob sandwich is one of my all time favorites. Served on homemade bread and generously portioned, it's a winner every time, as are the hot...More

Ate here today on a recommendation. I walked in and had a bad feeling. The place was busy so I gave it a shot. Chicken kebab was ok. The grape leaves were inedible. Rice was ok. The price was reasonable. They have a buffet but...More

Came here on President's day with some friends for breakfast. The restaurant was empty except for one other table. Upon entering the restaurant, the lady at the front, who was very frumpy faced, did not greet us or even acknowledge our presence. When we asked...More

This is the best for genuine Turkish food. If you want a great dinner for under $100.00 for 2 people , try hummous, grilled fish with rice, and spinach pie. Turkish food is not only delicious, but it is also healthy. The wine is hearty...More
