I've driven past this small restaurant for several years. Given the location by a liquor store at a major intersection with aged buildings, my expectations were pretty low. But I was hungry and wanted something a little different. The inside of the restaurant is small...More

This is a small, spotlessly clean place next to a liquor store and a gas station. Don't be fooled by looks. The food is wonderful-gyros, kabobs, lamb chops and wonderful rice. Everything is cooked to order, fresh, never oily, and the chefs are always aiming...More

Close to I95. Lamb gyro and chicken kebab salad were excellent. Baklava was just ok . Only has parking for 4 or 5 cars, directly off busy highway.

It's No. 28 on the menu and No. 1 in my book. While waiting I was able to watch the preparation of two other dishes. I'm not sure what they were but I've got to go back and be adventurous, everything looked delicious.

While trying to decide where to stop for dinner, my companion reminded me of this little gem of a restaurant. As always there were a few people eating in and a few others ordering or waiting for take out. The falafels were tasty. The lamb...More

Great rice! Kabobs were very good flavor. Humus was fresh with thick pita bread. People was very nice and polite.

One can walk across the street from the HIE and find a great Gyro and pretty good baklava. Mostly a take out place, but there are a couple small tables. Service is prompt and the gyro was very good. Give them a try.
