This place is not far from the tourist district. I eat here very regularly. If you like homestyle cooking in large portions, you'll love this place. They have two daily specials which include homemade soup/juice, meal, coffee/tea and ice cream cup, often for less than $12. Saturdays they have an awesome prime rib dinner. Go early for the best selection of cuts. They serve breakfast everyday, all-day, and again the portions are large. I love their homefries (HALF order!) with my breakfast. The only one drawback at this place is the fact they use lots of butter and oil in their cooking, so if you want a 'low-fat' meal or vegetarian meal, you may want to try somewhere else. They do have an amazing Greek salad (the restaurant is owned by a very nice Greek family), it is not on the menu, but just ask. Hope you like feta cheese, you will get a half-pound of it on your salad. Yummy!
