Best gyros in town ... I tried the ribs once and they were pretty good, but with that 1 exception I always get the my gyros fix here. It's one of the perks of having my car worked on at the Chevy dealer, as this...More

The brisket BBQ is huge but has virtually no wood smoke flavor, and the BBQ sauce is cloyingly sweet. My wife's chicken sandwich was just OK. Pretty restaurant. We won't return.More

From the outside it looks like a run of the mill fast food joint. Very well decorated, clean, and friendly. The place was packed and the line was to the door...but they moved you through quick. Ordered the Ribs special and thought it'd be average...More

This has become a mainstay for us for BBQ. The food is fresh and the portions are large. The staff is very friendly. They have plenty of seating but it does get crowded during the week for lunch. I'm addicted to the chicken kabobs. It's...More

Not the right place for a gyro, maybe their BBQ is better. The serving was fairly skimpy. Not a very generous portion of meat. The taste was okay, but nothing to make us return. Probably won't go back for the BBQ.More

Recommend the ribs, Greek potatoes, coleslaw, gyros, chicken fajitas (fyi - more like a Greek chicken), Mediterranean wraps, split pea soup. Basically everything we've tried is excellent. Great service, friendly staff and great food! We go there once a week mainly for dinner. You can't...More

When walking in the door the smell of the food cooking gets your mouth watering. Never had any food that I did not enjoy. Great size portions never have left hungry.
