Had dinner and watched the world cup game...the food was good and the nice thing the bar wasn't full of drunks screaming. Looks like we found a new place to go for game days

Lunch is large portions and reasonable. Good food quality. Slow to terrible service. I perfer to sit outside due to the "dark & dingy" feel inside. Happy hour has half priced app's and hookahs.

"dogs get bigger bones for less" and I will tell you why in a minute, but first, first things first. Last month,I visited this place as first time and ordered a hookah with double-apple flavor. the flavor was so weak that I think it was half apple and not double. My waiter from New york who spoke Spanish told me... More

This is the worst greek restaurant I have been too. Tzaki sauce...no flavor. Mousaka...cold and runny. Kabobs...tough and chewy. Wait staff was very poor. After we were seated we were told our waitress would be right with us. Five minutes later we were told she was in the bathroom (why would you say that?). Another apology came a few minutes... More

The only reason why I rate this as Poor and not Awful is because Ryan, the waiter, was very good. This is not just bad Greek food, it is bad food, period. Your palate would need to be dead to like the food here.

Had the Gyros entree for $15, large portion, came with a huge Greek Salad, also a baked potato, 2 could share this selection. The napkin toss is clowning, seriously the staff and friends threw maybe 2000 cocktail napkins in the air while a fog machine and laser light were kicking. Greek music blasting, auto grat added to our party we... More

I was a regular at this Restaurant we celebrated birthdays and usually made reservations for over 30 people, and all of this people eat and drink. Now is awful because your guests have to order a Main dish or they will charge their tab a 15.00 fee per person. Which I think is illegal. As long as you are consuming... More
