Great fresh food, friendly and quick service! This is my 3rd time and it was delicious as usual! What a gem! They have a few non Greek food choices and a kids menu. But why go to a Greek joint and not order the amazing...food?More

Ate lunch with a friend, and had a chicken greek salad which was DELICIOUS and had a very generous portion of chicken. (I enjoyed it for lunch and dinner that day, as well as lunch the next day!) It's a little loud inside, so maybe...sit outside. We were seated and got out food in record time, and out waiter was super nice. Absolutely recommend!More

Broke a tooth eating a Greek Salad that had Kalamata Olives in it, unpitted!!! Bit straight down on a unpitted olive and cracked a molar in half! Not cool! A salad is suppose to be fork to mouth, not unpit every freaking olive! Very upsetting!...Was suppose to get a call back from a manager, but nothing yet!!More

First, if you've ever had a lamb gyro, this place will severely disappoint. It's not the shaved lamb everyone is accustomed to, but rather a mixture of lamb and meat in a cube shape. Tasteless and horrible. Second, the chicken gyro meat looked and tasted...like something from canned chicken, much like tunafish. No visual attempts of actually cooking it, just straight out of can. Horrible and tasteless. Third, if you dare confront the manager about the horrible tasteless food, you will not get any compensation or apology, you will get thrown out of the place! The managers response to our complaint: This is America, this is how we make gyros. Unacceptable. I will admit my husband has a loud voice, but his issue was with the FOOD, not the waitress or the manager. It doesn't matter if we aren't allowed back because there are other, more authentic Greek restaurants in this area we will be spending our money on, and wouldn't be coming back here even if we were "allowed" back in. I wonder if the owner knows this is how the manager treats the customers?More

Don't get me wrong - the food is fresh, delicious, authentic with an interesting, varied menu. Dine In. Though the website shows that you can order online, the secondary is door dash. No problem Sign up with door dash, place your order complete payment, get...a confirmation, No problem 5 minutes later you will get a cancellation as they cannot process the order. If you don't check your email, you don't know this. Problem Call the restaurant and order. Set a pick up time "Sorry. We don't have the 'technology' to process an order for a later pick up. Call an hour before you plan to pick up The technology?? OK. Roll with it. I need a 6:00 pick up and call at 5:09. "Sorry. We can't process your order for more than 30 minutes before pick up" (must be the advanced technology) OK - I'm in the midst of preparing for multiple guests and now I have to trust that they will have "the technology" to have the food ready 30 minutes before pick up. Unacceptable in a time with every restaurant with curbside in the age of COVID has "the technology" to process an order for late pick up. As good as the food is, won't do it again.More

To be honest, we weren't expecting much from a restaurant that calls itself the "best Mediterranean food in Northern Colorado." We found it to be very good, especially fresh tasting, and it was served in generous portions. Don't miss the galaktoboureko-type dessert! Yummy!

My husband and I weren't super hungry so we decided to split the sampler platter. It was a great way to sample their items. The falafels, spanakopita, and gyros were amazing. Everything was so flavorful! The hummus was a large portion and came with pita...chips. It was really good and we had so much we ended up taking some home. We ordered baklava ala mode for dessert. The flavor was perfect but it was quite stale and almost hard in some places. Service was good and food was delivered quickly. Overall, I'm very pleased and will definitely return.More

Was out with hubby and daughter today. Stopped in for first time. Great food! The lamb was amazing, and the produce was very fresh. Good portion sizes and friendly service! Highly recommend! Will be coming back!
