“Affordable and very tasty!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

I got multiple veggie dishes such as the falafel and it was very flavorful and the portion size was good as well. All very affordable too!

“Good Food, Period!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

Rolled into ABQ. around lunch and was starving, found this place driving down Central. Good home style Greek cooking.
DO NOT PARK in back, McDonald's is the evil parking lot overlord and will have a boot put on your tire... removal: $60.
Had the chicken rice with lemon soup with a gyro, perfect.
Not for the nosebleed crowd, perfect for everyday folks who appreciate good food.
I loved it!

Great food, well priced, part of old UNM area! This fun place to eat and people watch has been around for many years and is still doing it right! The food is fresh and authentic. Service is friendly and helpful, the atmosphere is old world fun!

Kind of expensive and they charge for extra sauce....not big on atmosphere but the food is good. Parking is terrible and if you park at McDonald's thinking you wont get caught... you will and be towed lol but food is good and probably better then most places for greek

“Still one of the best stops in town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

Very good Greek food, good prices, self service local spot with a long history of consistency. Across from University. Metered street parking that is free after 6 PM. I always order a filling Greek Combo.
