Really enjoyed my pizza. We got a medium pizza which was really tasty. Expect to pay a little more than at the main chains, and the ordering situation is a little confusing, (order at the register or at the table) but the staff was very helpful. Very local crowd in there for lunch on a Saturday, which usually indicates that... More

I lived in Southport four years and finally tried this restaurant. A very pleasant surprise. Really a local dinner kind of place. Very clean and staff is good. Order at counter and they bring dishes to your table. Tried the Gyros platter and it was excellent. Friends tried a Greek salad, steak and peppers sub and veggie sub. We all... More

The crust on my pizza was slightly thick with a crispy crust. The ingredients were fresh and very flavorful. We eat a lot of pizza and were quite pleased with Famous'.

The pizza was awesome. Trying to get someone to wait on you outside the window, not so much. The food is worth the wait though. As long as your not looking at service and just something quick to eat, this place has it. I love their pizza!

I have eat there many times over the years for their manicotti. But today was horrible. The waitresses were apparently fighting and I find that unacceptable. No hellos, no smiles and poor service. I left a tip and wish I had not. The manicotti was not good this time. Too much peppery taste and dry. I sure hope management reads... More

We were pleasantly surprised. Don't expect table cloths and dim lighting. It's bright, noisy (fun happy noisy) and no frills - but the pizza is excellent. Nice crisp crust. The garden or house salad - can't remember what they called it was just lettuce, cukes, tomato and onion - so nothing to brag about but it was fresh. The service... More

Consistently some of the best gyros we've had, and we've eaten them all over the world. Only thing I've ever eaten at this restaurant and I will probably never eat anything else there--I can't pass up the gyros, they are just that good. (Just request they leave off the lettuce!!) Friendly service, quick and attentive.

Have a calzone to go. Was surprisingly good even after cooling down before I got to eat it. Wait was short on order of ten minutes or so. Waitress and staff seemed very friendly. Appears to be good family atmosphere and did not see alcohol advertised which was surprising.

This Greek family serves up chicken,piszza, sandwiches, pitas, Greek salads, and cheap beer. nothing fancy, but a good place for dinner. If you are not looking for fine dinning, you'll be happy!
