Excellent food!

Food is excellent. The daily lunch specials are worth the trip! It's hands down one of the best places to go for Greek food in the area.

Lunched here with a colleague. Chose the chicken kabob with three sides (chose stuffed grape leaves, hummus, small greek salad). All the food was well prepared and very tasty. Service was speedy and the staff very friendly. Plan on returning with my wife.

Charlie is a truly wonderful person who enjoys what he does and loves his customers. He makes you feel like you are a guest that is a friend you haven't seen in awhile and actually takes care of you! He even took care of my 16 month old son to make sure he had something he liked!
