Food was really good. We had a table of 20 and they did an absolute amazing job with all the craziness.

We arrived after breakfast and lunch and before dinner. Half the restaurant was closed so they could wash the floors. Service was slow in the beginning but was fine after we got our drinks. One ordered one of the wraps, one order the chicken salad on marbled bread (it was huge), one ordered patty melt, and one order the Greek... More

We were there for lunch. The waitress seated us and provided menus. She brought our beverage soon afterword and took our order. I ordered chopped steak with two sides (mashed potatoes with gravy and a side salad) The meal was beyond average and i would definitely recommend eating there. Be aware though that this place sometimes is full at lunch... More

As others have disclosed, this place is a dump and could use cleaning and restoration. However, the Greek dishes are as good as you'll find anywhere. The service is attentive and the prices are VERY reasonable. The only faults I found were the dressing for the Greek salad (not good) and the kalamata olives in the Greek salad (not pitted).

The portions are extremely large. The chicken salad PITA pocket was amazing. If you stop in here you better be hungry.

Went here previously for a wonderful dinner. This time, not so great but they did correct the wrong. Had the flaming cheese, olives and feta, pita bread, Greek salad and the Lemmon pepper sole. All were great but the Lemmon pepper sole. It was so salty it was inedible. They did take it back and replaced with a nicely done... More

This is a nice diner that doesnt seem to get as much traffic as it deserves. The server and owner were very nice and willing to provide excellent service. The Gyros are really good.
