We have been eating here for almost 20 years. The lamb chops is great. Best shaved gyros in Baltimore by a mile. Excellent loukaniko. Great Greek soups and deserts too!

This small but cozy restaurant has a lot to offer. The Greek food that they prepare is so authentic. You can dine in or take out. We really like their famous Samos house dressing that they use for their Greek salads. What is so nice...More
