This was a great place to relax and enjoy the atmosphere on the patio. The gyro was delicious. The pita was soft and warm. I'd definitely come back if I return to DC.

The falafel was excellent. Extraordinarily good and a superior value for the $5.99 lunch special. As good as I've had and I've had a lot. The Greek salad with chicken, despite a recent review, below, was very meh. Not particularly fresh or inventive. Maybe they...More
