I love this place and so does everyone else so make a reservation! It is always busy but they are quick to get you in if they can make room. Dinners are much more expensive but the quality is excellent. Go for lunch at half the price but same goodness in the kitchen!

Despite the terrible name of this restaurant I very much enjoy dining here. The food is consistently good and the service is typically quick. I don't think I have ever had a bad meal here and I come here fairly often. The restaurant can get loud so if you want privacy I recommend you get a booth. They do take... More

My sister recommended this place as a very convenient place with good food, plenty of parking and it is a BYOB. We were a group of 7, the food was very good, my husband had the lamb chops, three of us had the clay pot with shrimp, scallops and orzo, a friend had the whole fish, another had the grilled...

We stopped by after heading back from shopping. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming! Very clean and great service! They staff was very kind and made sure we had everything we needed! The food was fantastic!! I ordered the braised lamb and it is absolutely one of the best things I've eaten! I would recommend this place in a heartbeat!!!

This is a great value restaurant. We ordered fried calamari, grilled octopus and shrimp in tomato sauce to start. All three dishes were excellent and the fried calamari melts in your mouth. I had the mussels on spaghetti entree. Unfortunately not my favorite. There were so many mussels but I had one that was undercooked and spent the night wondering... More

My wife decided on giving the food a try, after seeing this place while driving. We ordered the gyro & chicken platter, as well as the Greek fries. The chicken was quite tasty as well as the lemon potatoes, but the Greek fries were a little to soggy. My wife wasn't impressed with the lamb but for something different from... More

The food and service was excellent. The shrimp dishes were fabulous; the branzino was excellent. The four dip appetizer was delicious. Everything was fresh and prepared beautifully. It's very crowded and loud; but we loved it. Would definitely return.

I love this place! Have been here MANY times and never disappointed! The two brothers from Greece who own it are always there, so they keep up the quality and service with a sharp eye! The grilled calamari as an appetizer can be a lunch in itself, served with good bread and Greek Olive oil of a high quality. The... More

We went to Greek City for lunch on a Sunday and were very disappointed.I ordered the spanakopita which came as three triangle pieces that were mostly dough and almost no filling. My husband had a gyro platter. The meat was very dry. I requested one of my pieces be packed to take home. Even though my husband was still eating... More
