We've been coming here for years and it is always delicious. I went with the lamb kabob and it was cooked to perfection. The salad is great with their lemon flavor. This place also has the best french fries you will ever try. Yummm!

My boyfriend and I tried this place out for the first time and it was so delicious. We had the combination appetizer, pita burger, Greek salad, and topped it off with baklava. Every bite was amazing but there was so much food it barely looked...More
