BEST GYROS in town! These guys are the best in town for hummus, gyros and authentic Med. food. We always head there for a greek gyro salad. Can't be beat.

I am from Israel and when my friend took me to a place she said you have to try I didn't imagine it would be that good. It's a simple place nothing fancy but they got a row of products which you can't find often...More

This place is in my neighborhood and I am glad about that! Delicious Lebanese and Middle Eastern food. Quick and easy to take away, casual to dine in. I highly recommend the falafels in any form.

Very good food, sometimes less than prompt or courteous service, but great food none the less, for locals and visitors alike (this is one of the few places you might see the same amount of customers any time of year). Good chicken, great baba ghannouj,...More

Healthy lunch options with a Mediterranean twist. Quick lunch combos or smaller meal portions, eat-in or to-go. Made on the spot for you, plus refrigerator marketing options to bring home and make yourself. College crowd mixed with the hospital crowd dining together. Cool place.
