I have only had the gyro on all of my visits. The being very tasty, thesize of the sandwich is very generous. I've never tried the spicy gyro. The servers are always pleasant, welcoming and prices for lunch are reasonable.

It was a nice place and the food is good but really expensive for dinner menu. Greek salad has only one olive. Really?

This has to be one of the strangest Greek/Mediterranean restaurants I have ever been too. From the moment the misguided waitress ushered us in it went downhill from there. I'm sure the food would have been better if not served by such a bitter and...More
