We really enjoy Greek food and were excited to find a local place. Unfortunate that the food tasted old and flavorless. The meat on the gyro was so dry you had trouble chewing it. The okra soup was like tomato soup with soggy okra.

Good food, good price. Staff is efficient but not particularly friendly. Could be a cultural thing? Or maybe just a fluke. It won't prevent us from returning. I really enjoyed the music they played, it added to the experience.
