Not bad at all

Good service plus reasonable price and a large menu equals a very good family restaurant. The parking lot is a little difficult but it is well worth the effort.

Since I teach at the nearby community college I go here for breakfast and sometimes dinner prior to evening classes I am partial to their breakfasts, their pancakes are wonderful reminding me of my mom's, and the wait staff are efficient, friendly and you always get a coffee refill. This is a wonderful place for families, friends, or just by... More

There's something to be said for someone who takes great pride in his profession. Dino, the owner, personally oversees the menu in this delightful family style restaurant. His homemade Greek Salad Dressing is simply the best I've ever had! Portions are enormous and the staff is friendly and quick. Can be quite crowded on weekend mornings however, but you'll be...

If you want a great casual dining place, this is the place to go. Staff is always friendly. Food is almost always home made there. Awesome Greek salads and spinach pie.

Food is good and inexpensive and the menu is all about home cooking. The service is friendly and efficient and they are organized to get people seated as quickly as possible. Sunday mornings are packed!

This is a great diner located just off Woodward. If you're craving some standard breakfast food or a quick sandwich then this is the place to go. I recently stopped in Nellos for dinner and was thoroughly surprised by their options, great menu. I decided on the spaghetti and it was great. Tons of flavor in their simple meat sauce.

Senior meals includes soup or salad, and desert. The food was good. The service was good and friendly. The restaurant was clean, and there... More
