I went here for dinner with my boyfriend tonight looking to try something new. The restaurant has a cozy family diner feel. The prices here are very cheap.

From the Big Breakfast to something simple, this traditional Greek family restaurant does not disappoint. The service is usually very decent and the food is always fresh and hot. I could do without the frozen fish fry but everything else has been very good.

The waitress was professional and charming. It was about 9am on Friday morning. The place was virtually empty - maybe we missed the morning crowd, but then again, this is Buffalo. Our food came without much of a wait. One of us ordered an omelet and 2 of us ordered the kickin' chicken skillet. The skillet dish was so big,... More

The food was prepared fast and was presented in a pleasurable way. The food was tasty and serving size was good. Restaurant is clean and staff is pleasant. The prices were a tad bit higher than most other Greek style restaurants but can be overlooked as it is quiet and clean....

I went there for breakfast; I ordered eggs, pancakes and bacon. The food was good, tasty and cooked well, e.g. the pancakes were firm but not dry. The service is quite good, and the staff is very attentive. The prices are what you would expect. Overall, for a quick breakfast that is a good value in a location that is... More
