My family and I love to eat here when we want something other than a burger. They offer a traditional greek menu as well as some unique dishes. Food is always fresh and the service is excellent.

This is a return visit for the 4 of us. We were here last year and loved it so much we came back. 3 of us had the Gyro with the greek salad and 1 had the steak pita. We had a calamari appetizer also. We all loved the food. The only problem was our server, Mallorie, didnt pick up... More

Not as Greek as some might like but it does have a Greek flavor and the Avgolemono is excellent. The Greek style potatoes are to die for. Decent wine selection as well.

Sugar and salt. It wasn't all bad but I wish I didn't have to suck down so much salt! I had the dolmades which were quite good. The bread was soft and warm and yummy. The service was friendly. The hamburger was delicious but my kid had to drink a vat of water to quench his salt thirst! Not bad... More

Stopped in for lunch and ordered a gyro. I was disappointed with the meat, didn't have that greek gyro taste. Tomatoes looked like they were cut yesterday, kinda dried out. Didn't like that I had to get fries with the gyro, I was just looking for a quick lunch, left the fries on the plate. Very nice restaurant though. Clean... More

Years ago, the Big Fat Greek restaurants used to be a happy place. Waiters danced, and shouted OPA every time a flaming plate was lit. Now the place is much quieter and the service, while OK, is not enthusiastic. We had a pork chop and a rack of lamb. The lamb was good, but the pork chop was dry and... More

Large portions and the food is full of flavor. I've been here a number of times and have been happy with what I've ordered.

MBFGR is one of my absolute favorites! I've been coming here since it opened and it is one of the only restaurants I crave! The staff is always friendly, the food is always fresh, and the atmosphere is refreshing and fun! I've never had a bad meal from here! I suggest any of the pizzas! They are to die for!
