I've been here several times. It is very popular. Inside can be very loud. It is more pleasant outside if you can get a table there. There isn't a big difference between lunch and dinner prices; the dinner portions are larger. Overall, the portions are generous. A single entree (for me, grilled calamari) with the included side dish (lemon potatoes, rice or horta, a very tasty green vegetable), bread and unexpected free desert is way too much food to finish so for $16.95 I get two dinners. It is an excellent value but it wouldn't matter if the food weren't good but it is, hence its long-term popularity. I remember going there for lunch many years ago, before they expanded and before it was well-known. My wife wanted to know how they made the lemon potatoes and the chef took the time to show her and give her a bag of seasoning for free. I've never forgotten that small kindness. I've never had a problem with the service.

A family favorite..coming here for years ... Absolutely delicious fresh Greek food can't get better than this! Be prepared to wait ....there is always a line...however, it's definitely worth waiting... Unfortunately, no coffee or tea is served but the galakoboureko is amazing!!!
