Been going here for years!! The food is delicious and I love that I can get the Lebanese fruit drinks I love. Love the owners, they play no games, and DONT dare ask for ketchup. If you forget there are plenty of signs posted.

The food here was alright. The chicken in my dish was lacking in flavor and was very dry. The lamb/beef gyro meat was good. The tahini and tzatziki were average. The service left something to be desired. The location was pretty convenient. Also worth noting,...More
