“Delicious little restaurant with friendly staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2011

My wife and I were staying in Midland and had found this restaurant through Tripadvisor. It looked like just what we wanted - an inexpensive place with good food that offered take-out - preferably with a selection of salads.

We found it easily enough and, although we had some doubts about finding a gem in a small strip mall, we went in. The menu is on a chalk board and a bit hard to read so the friendly counter person gave us a printed menu. My wife got an Oriental salad and I got the chicken alexander. Both turned out to be excellent and the total bill came to under $20 including tax. There are many other tempting items and we look forward to returning the next time our travels take us to Midland.

“Great unique food option!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2011

Great fast food with a wide variety of international options. The gyros are especially amazing. Atmosphere is only ok, but a great alternative for a quick meal

“Great Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2009

We selected this restaurant based on the 2 reviews it already had. We were not disappointed. I had the Halle Berry salad, which was delicious. My husband, who did not want to be bothered to read the entire menu, asked the counter person to make a good selection for him. She suggested to go half and half with the Greek Isle salad and Basin Street Club. He was very happy with this selection. I definitely recommend this restaurant.

“Best place for lunch/salads in Midland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2008

I go three times a week. Big salads with fresh berries, grilled chicken (real chicken! Not fake weirdo pressed chicken) added for a buck. Great iced tea!

Burgers are terrible, but some of the wraps and sandwiches are good.

For the salads alone, this is almost the best place in town, hands down.
