“Mad Greek Salad and Wine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2011

Love the salads and gyros here. The Greek Fries aren't bad either and you must do the fry sauce. The wine selection is amazing, and they sell bottles for take home. The wine list is extensive and they know their stuff. Make sure and see Nicole in the bar, she's the best!

“Greek Fries!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2010

Oh my the fries with their omega sauce. Lots of American or Greek choices. This family owned cafe has been around forever. The live bands on the weekends are child appropriate and just great fun for the whole family. Kids love the gyros or just a pita with hummas. I love their dolamathes, they are very fresh. Excellent selections of wines. Fun atmosphere with quirky servers.

“OPA!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2009

This place is what a deli is all about! They have live music most every weekend and wine tastings in the summer time. I follow them on Facebook so I always know who is playing and about their giveaways/contests etc…

Props to the "mom and pop" shop. we just don't have enough of these types of places these days. Do you want to eat your food at a processed plant like 'Gyro-Gyro' or 'Daphnes' in a mall or at a place that is actually Greek owned and operated? This palce has tradition and has been in the area with its recipes for a long time passed on from generation to generation. Its hard to survive in the restaurant business and with the way this place does its food its easy to see why they have survived the best and worst of times.

When you go here you will see the same faces and they will remember you. I haven't grown up at this deli but have been going the last 6-7 years. I find myself craving the Greek Fries and their unique texture and flavor. The people that complain about this place need to remember that they are going into a "DELI"... A DELI FOLKS. Relax, slow down and enjoy life for a few minutes, chill out and enjoy the food. If you dont like it leave it to the people that actually enjoy good old fashioned GREEK food and spend your time at Elephants counting your money and starring at your Mercedes. If it seems spendy (which I disagree with) its because it isnt a bunch of crap and its made from scratch.

The best way to sum it up is that its a Deli with a great wine bar in the back with a great wine selection with great Greek food.

Do: try the Mad Chicken and the Greek Fries... (everything else is good but everyone has a favorite)
Do: Make sure to go to the back and check out the walk in beer cooler and the new wine bar.
Do: Introduce yourself to the owner (pondo) who is really nice.
Dont: Call the greek fries Jo-Jo's.
