Fast food restaurant or lunch spot. I had the gyros pita with tomato cumber, grilled onions, and tziktziki sauce stuffed in a pita. I had fries wich are seasoned, very good as well. I’m coming back to try the chicken swarma, which looked delicious.

One of my favorite lunch spots! The Chickpea Quinoa Salad is divine. Lines usually aren't too terribly long and it is also conveniently located. One of my favorite spots for lunch with my daughter.
