Friendly, quiet, good food, large portions, no frills. We came for an early dinner on a Saturday, it was quiet and service was fast and friendly. The food was simple, well prepared, and tasty.

Tried my first shawarma, it was excellent. Family had gyros and the fries were very good. The man who ran the place was friendly. We'll be going back. Hours are limited, be on time, it's worth it.

The best gyros. The meat was succulent and delicious. The sauce was spot on. We also enjoyed the dolmas. For a town known for Buddy Holly and BBQ, this restaurant was a very nice diversion. Thanks for reading. The Bike Chaplain
