My wife and I have been going here for over ten years when we visit friends in Willow Glen. It is family run and serves a mixture of American and Greek food. Everything we have ever tried has been wonderful and the portions are large. They used to include dessert with all meals, but the economy and competition has forced them to cut back. Although more trendy restaurants further down the street have lowered their patronage, the consistency of service and quality of food should help them survive.

A great place to get a varied menu. All dishes were ample portions. I had a "low cal" steak that was excellent. Wife had a chicken dish that was very big. Food was excellent and staff seemed to have been there forever.

Went here on a Sunday afternoon, around 4pm. Didn't have to wait for an outdoor table and service was fast. The sangria and lemon greek soup were delicious. We also had the chicken gyro and asked to "upgrade" the fries adding garlic and feta cheese. The fetuccini Alfredo was great. Will definitely return.

John's and its staff seem that they are trying to go out of business. This morning 9/12 I went in early for breakfast and sat at a table waiting for the waiter. And waited. And waited. There was only 1 other person in the restaurant. If they don't have enough staff to serve a near-empty restaurant just after they open, either open later, or, add more staff. There are new restaurants opening in Willow Glen and I can only think the staff is trying to put John's out of business, or, the family itself, who owns the restaurant, is unable to compete

Unlike jake3_14, our service was fast and courteous every time I have eaten there. I, too, have had a reuben there but lean towards their lamb items. The lamb is cooked exactly the way I ordered it, on the rare side, and in the Greek traditional manner. Simply delicious and a place to frequent whenever in the Willow Glen area.
