wonderful food and service

Had Greek salad and added gyro meat. Lots of ingredients including feta. Dressing is the best in the area. (No pink looking dressing here). Menu is very large and covers a wide palate. Nice inside.

We were immediately delighted at the ambience and friendly staff. The food was terrific, our waitress (Jennifer) made excellent recommendations, and we had an outstanding experience. Our only regret was not having time to sample their phenominal dessert offerings !

The food and service never disappoints! I always order the chicken quesadilla which is thick, made with rice, green peppers, tomatoes, and huge white meat chicken chunks on a fried pita. (See the picture.). I will keep going back.

This family restaurant has huge portions and reasonable prices. My son and I enjoyed some great pasta, soup and salad, and a fairly good $5 glass of Merlot. I highly recommend the baked spaghetti. It was a gigantic portion and I was only able to finish half - it's easily enough for two!

My wife and I stopped here to avoid the traffic congestion as it was right at 5:00 pm, and found it a pleasant surprise to our liking. The food was good, service staff very friendly and helpful, and prices excellent for the portion size. They do Greek food well! It appears to be a family owned restaurant, and it shows.

Have been a frequent diner and have always had a great meal, breakfast, lunch or dinner entrée always more than enough to eat and always fresh and good. Fair prices for great home cooked food.

Amazing omelettes and French toast!!! The food was fast and the service was great. Even the girls at the register were friendly. Try the Grecian omelette for a little Mediterranean flair with the feta. Great stop.

First time here and being unfamiliar with Greek food I ordered the Hera breakfast: 2 eggs, grits or home fries with toast or a biscuit. I also ordered a side of fruit salad. My first impression when I tasted the fruit salad is that it was too sweet, almost overpowering. They add cinnamon and sugar to it which is unnecessary... More
