All previous comments made all the good comments about he food. Yes it’s small, but clearly it’s run by a family and that in itself should be a reason to visit. Even as a vegetarian I was able to have a full meal.

The people are warm and inviting. The food was amazing. They only make so much food. So when they are out, they’re out. I had the beef stew with spaghetti. It was very delightful.

We were in search of some good food as we were tired of gyros and other fast food. The food was excellent and tasted as if we were at home eating food made by our Yiayia. Perfect. Would visit again if we ever have the...More

Delicious home cooked food by a wonderful family. The Goat stew and dolmades were both amazing. The menu changes daily so you won't know what meals to expect. They only cook a certain amount each day so be sure to go early to not miss...More
