nice food, not so nice as a restaurant

Ok - first things first. This is a pretty basic road-side diner - it's right off a main road but that means it's easy to get to and easy to park. The main business for this place seems to be takeout, and whilst I was there plenty of people were ordering and collecting so they are obviously doing... read more

I swear this place should be a sit town the food-to-go is that good! This place is the best Greek in tasted so far in the mid-west! I got the gyro lunch w rice. Hubs got the same with fries. Can't go wrong with either side. The lamb is full of flavor! Wonderful!

My family went to Nupa for a quick meal on a Friday night after a recommendation from a friend. Great choice. It is a take-out and counter service Greek restaurant specializing in gyros, kabobs, falafel, etc. We ate in the restaurant, and from ordering to receiving our food was only about 10 minutes. The food was great, although a little... More

I dined at the location on Crossroads Drive on the south side of Rochester (1 of 2 in town), location is in a busy strip mall with good parking. The resturant has high ceilings and is a little noisy when busy. Order at the counter (they do have menus that you can take and sit down with and study if... More

Terrific food at reasonable prices. Service is fast, pleasant and willing to help you make choices. The falafel platter included a Greek salad and rice and was absolutely fabulous!! Very convenient location, but definitely worth going out of your way. A haven from all the chain restaurants .

WOW! This place is amazing. Super clean, fresh and excellent customer service, not to mention the food is delicious. I had the pita platter and my daughter had grilled chicken and gluten-free pizza. The servers there went above and beyond normal customer service. My daughter was on a special, strict "diet" for 24 hours before a certain test she was... More

Small with plenty of seating. Best Greek Food in town. We stop here every time we hit Rochester. Great food and great service. We stop at the Original on Civic Center Drive. They are so friendly it's hard to try the other location. Gyro Pita with extra tzatziki sauce. The Avgolemeno soup is as good as anywhere. Prices are very... More

I don't make it down to Rochestor very often but when I do this is where I dine. I love how fast you get your food and it's of quality. This time I brought my fiancé here with his parents and they were exceptionally pleased with the amount of food and it's flavor. Glad they enjoyed their first visit. I'll... More
