“Can't just go once!”
Reviewed July 7, 2014 via mobile

My daughter and I absolutely love this place. The owners cook from the heart and are always very warm and accommodating. It is rustic and authentic. Everyone needs to go atleast once but you'll go back. I promise!

“Inexpensive, Tasty Food”
Reviewed July 6, 2014

This east-European/middle eastern food is very tasty and excellent value. The owner, originally from Iraq, is very friendly and speaks several languages. The outdoor seating is limited. A lot of his business is "food to go". Recommendable.

“Mmmmm Excellent!!”
Reviewed July 2, 2014

After hearing about this little place from a friend...and reading all of the awesome reviews...well, I just had to try it!!

I had the Hawaii pizza...very light thin crust, delicious sauce...very very good pizza!!

I really want to go back to try the chicken shawarma...I've heard a lot of great things about it. Can't wait!!

The owner was the nicest guy too! It was HIS birthday and he was cooking for me...LOL..

Great great food....nice friendly people and service...FABULOUS!!

“Disappointed”
Reviewed July 1, 2014 via mobile

I had chicken shwarma and the chicken was quite overdone and overpowered with seasoning. My fiance ordered kebab and it was ground meat that was also overpowered with seasoning. The dolmades tasted store bought. To top it all off we waited almost 45 minutes for everything and it wasn't even that busy. Not impressed and I hardly feel its worth a first place spot on this app.

“Good, casual meal”
Reviewed June 26, 2014

Pretty generous lunch plate for under $10 per person. The food was tasty. The beef kabob was formed ground meat but very good, the chicken swarma was tasty but the amount of chicken was pretty light. There are a few tables under some shady trees on the sidewalk and maybe a dozen in the casual yet atmospheric inside. The chef/owner was pleasant and pleased we enjoyed the food. Order at the counter then take a seat.
