A long-time mainstay in south Evanston. Nothing fancy for sure but reliably good, simply-prepared food. Sandwich/salad place for the lunch crowd. Big helpings are typical.

This place has been around for over 15 years and the gyros, burgers, chicken and especially the greek fries served "wet" in a secret lemony herb sauce are one of a kind. Cash only, keeps the prices really low. Wait staff very friendly.

Not a large place and the menu is not real expansive but the food is good and the service is as well. Always crowded with many of the local area residents. Have never eaten there but always a crowd there. Good to call ahead if you know what you want. Gyros are awesome and the Greek fries are as well.... More

The food was very good as was the service at lunchtime. Plan to try their takeout and to come back for dinner. "Maria" fries are a special side. Looks like it might be one of our standards. Food was plentiful and tasty.

The gyros always sizzles, have it on a Greek salad with wonderful lemony Greek fries, or on pita bread and it is simply marvelous. This place is a local treasure, their chicken is tender, and seasoned well, the service attentive. It is a small place, always full with those dining in and carrying out food. Over the years the quality... More

Always happy to eat here with their SUPERB greek fries in lemon !! Great salads, souvlaki, gyros, even good burgers. Somewhat sparse interior, but consistently good food. Street parking with meters.

The Greek chicken is outstanding. Other Greek dishes are equally good. They do not take reservations so arrive early. Cash only.

Nothing fancy, but great Greek chicken & fries. This place in an Evanston staple; a real must go. Perfect spot to grab dinner for the family - either take out, or for a casual dine in.

Not only do they have some nice greek flavors here, the hamburgers are good also. I love the greek potatoes here with a touch of lemon. This is not a large restaurant and on occasion you may have to wait for a table. They only take cash - cards here.

We really liked the secret sauce on greek fries; it's lemon based and gives fires a new dimension. If you are interested in trying gyros, soyvlaki etc this is one of the very good places for that. The restaurant itself is similar to a greek taverna inside.
