I am very fond of lamb, True Blue makes a delicious gyro with lamb, nice red tomatoes, green lettuce, ond their excellent sauce. My fondness for lamb causes me to only order this. I like the ambiance and the service is superior. Another plus, not corporate food, the owner is in the house

Lamb kabobs are to die for along with pita and babaganoush and chicken kabob and kids lamb kabob that my son likes. I think the best compliment any place can have is... More

Of course there are gyros and they are very good. But there are many other Greek selections and they are also very good. Desserts are traditional and are fresh and tasty. The service is good and staff is very friendly. Atmosphere is bright and and very clean. Go there.

I wrote a review a year ago about True Blue's Bethlehem location. That site is no longer with all the focus now spent on the original and by far better location. The food was extremely fresh and the service, considering the restaurant was completely packed, was as expected - I felt like a person, not a number. Try the fried... More

It was my daughter's night to pick where to eat. She picked "True Blue Mediterranean Cage" because all her friends talk about it at school. Now I know why! Six of us went today and all ordered different meals. We all loved our picks. I had a steak Gyro and it was the best I've ever eaten. It's in a... More

The food was absolutely delicious! True Blue catered our business luncheon and did not disappoint! We ordered Basmati Chicken and Steak, Fattoush, Hummus with Pita, Cauliflower with Lemonaize Sauce, and Lady Fingers for dessert. Everyone went back for seconds. Not only was the food fantastic, but the customer service was outstanding. The owner was attentive and wanted to make sure... More

This is a regular take out place for us. Gyros, falafel and all manner of middle eastern and Mediterranean fare. Vegitarian friendly. Have never had a bad meal from here in over 5 years. My favorite is the roast cauliflower - try it!

We had lunch at True Blue and loved it. Fresh ingredients and very tasty. The place is very small and fortunately we were running late for lunch so a table opened up, but I imagine at times you couldn't get a seat. So, I would go at a little "off" time and not right at meal times. The service was... More
