We stopped here before hitting the arcade. It's a no frills Greek diner, complete with plastic cups and plates. The food is good and the location can't be beat.

We stopped in here for lunch and were disappointed. We both had the Lamb Sandwich (Gyro). The lamb was clunky and a little tough. I wish I had something different.

This is one of the best Gyros I have eaten. The sauce was not overpowering and the spices just right. The chicken, beef, and lamb were delicious. The pita was just right. I would have like a larger gyro, but this one sure was tasty.

Hi We don't provide a parking since we are on the Main Street It's $1 per hour on the main road or you can use the public parking lots which usually cheaper if you plan on staying longer in town.
