My family and I drive to this place on a regular basis to have the gyro plate and salad. The service is awesome and the atmosphere is inviting. Great family restaurant.

I have visited Greece several times, and I can attest that this food tastes very authentic. Yes, the decor isn't great, but go to Greece, it is similar. The pita was really good and the Greek salad was superb. I loved the Greek beer. The service was fast and the food came out promptly. The price was reasonable.

I thoroughly enjoyed my lamb gyro. My lunch companion had a souvlaki plate that was enough for 2 meals. Looking forward to eating there again.

The restaurant is nothing fancy, but sometimes those are the best kind. The lamb gyro was authentic tasting and delicious. I tried egg custard for the first time for desert and it was simple yet amazingly good. It was hard to pick what desert to get out of the case up front at the register. They all looked so good....

We had read the reviews and were really looking forward to a great meal in this restaurant. The first thing we noticed inside the restaurant was how dirty the floor was. We did sit down and looked at the limited menu. We wanted some soup and no soup is served. We do not eat rice or potatoes and asked for... More

The restaurant itself is not very fancy in terms of interiors and Furnitures. The service is great and prompt. The pita bread here stands out, very tasty and is served hot. We had ordered baba ganoush and this combined with the pita bread was really good. After this the salads came over which were nice. The entree we ordered had... More

I came to get a salad for dinner and boy was I surprised. The salad was so good and really hit the spot. I am definitely going back so that I can taste some other Greek dishes.

It's not just that the service is good, and the food fantastic, the environment is also wonderfully Greek. We sat on the patio next to the garden where this restaurant GROWS THEIR OWN VEGETABLES! The fresh Village salad with tomatoes and cucumbers? Those tomatoes were on the vine half an hour ago. Does it get any better than this?

This hidden Gem is wonderful. We all tried different items on menu and were stuffed. Reasonably priced, family owned and very good food.
