Great food

This place is great but it can be pricey. The food is so fresh, excellent staff. Weekends can be a little crowded, specially on holidays.

I love this restaurant! It is not a one of the best in the world off course, but i love meats and appetizers, great food. Little work on service needed though.

I love the gyros here but I can do without the attitude. Now I just call ahead and take my food to go.

I often frequent this Fort Lee Greek to me, not only because I can walk there but the food is always fresh & served with great service. I find their salads to be generous and fresh, their soups very tasty, & their salmon & rice lunch plate to be a great value.

Many years (10+ years) ago, I really liked this chain in Ridgewood. Sadly, I found this Fort Lee place to be quite mediocre. Some of the lunch special items didn't seem any cheaper than the regular menu, which confused us. The salad portion sizes were surprisingly small, and the ingredients did not look particularly fresh. My brother's wrap looked okay,... More

I love Greek food and I order from this place at least once a month. The food is always good and plenty of it. The prices are a little high but I guess worth it.

If you are looking for a quick, casual meal,in a casual setting, on a main road close to the entrance to the George Washington Bridge, this place fits the bill. Prices are not inexpensive for the main plates, but you could get by with appetizers or a souvlaki pita at a reasonable cost. Mixed reviews about the few dishes our... More

We used to go regularly before the moved to a bigger space a couple of years ago. The food is just okay and it's not a great value, so we only go a few times a year when we can't think of somewhere else to go. Nice environment and friendly staff.

Food is better than average for a local greek restaurant at reasonable prices. One draw back at this location - they will not make whole wheat pita. Their are several "It's Greek to Me" within 5 miles of this location. One in Fairview and another on Englewood. I believe this is a mini chain.

Always come back to its Greek to me for a decent lunch at a decent price. I have had just about everything on the menu and it is all good....especially the stuffed pepper. Make sure that it is hot. I think sometimes they rush and don't make things hot enough, but it is an easy fix. My daughter gets the... More
