"I'm gluten-free." I told the owner/server, right up front. She then served me WHEAT FLOUR-encrusted flaming cheese! Her defense? "I don't know what gluten is. YOU [the customer] should have ..."

First time there for seven of us and we all loved this place! We ordered the flaming cheese, grape leaves, meatball sandwich, gyros and much more. We all ordered something different to share. Service was great and will go back.

I wish I could be as effusive about the food, but the lamb shank was tough - given its size, may have been from an older sheep. And the pork was dry - overcooked. But the ouzo was smooth, and their signature flaming cheese served...More

Came here tonight looking for some good ethnic food. I found it! Eating here takes me right back to Greece. The ambiance of the place could be somewhere in Greece, or in Colorado. The service was prompt, friendly and attentive. Everyone was very pleasant. I...More
