I've driven by this place for over 3 years. It's adjacent to a motel, so I always assumed they attracted most of their business from there since no one I know had eaten there. Well, it was about time to make that happen. I went to Micheal's Kitchen because they tout themselves as Greek & American Food. I enjoy Mediterranean food, so off I go for lunch.
Yes, there is a bird or bird(s) in a cage as you enter and you can hear the banter as you eat (a little different). At noon I saw some people eating breakfast, which is good to know because many people inlcuding myself enjoy "breakfast served all day." The overall atmosphere--tables, chairs, eating counter, decor, etc., was not overwhelming or impressive. Serving staff was friendly enough. I went with one of the samplers which included a tossed lettuce salad, feta, black olives, tomatoes, onions and a pretty good balsamic vinegarette with a gyro sandwich and a side of hummus.
The salad was fresh and dressing tasty. The gyro and accompanying yogurt sauce was also solid. The hummus, for some reason, had a spicy red either sauce or powder on top of it which took over the flavor and made what appeared to be decent hummus come off less than I had hoped. They do not serve pita bread separately for dipping in the hummus (not sure how you would eat it otherwise), so I asked for some and I got a nice little serving of pita but it did show up as a 0.50 charge on my final bill.
I may give this place another shot. Prices might be a touch high. For lunch, the Greek sampler ($7.99) and Diet Coke, plus my extra pita was $11.47 plus tip.
