Christina's is a great hidden little restaurant. The owner is always there, you can tell she cares about her food and her customers. The greek chicken and the Saganaki are both amazing, but the real star of this restaurant is the Baklava, absolutely the best I've ever eaten.
There are always good value specials, you won't be disappointed.

We went on the recommendation of an old friend who lives in S. Florida. Everything was delicious! Even my picky teen passed on his usual Chicken Parm to try the Greek meatballs, and loved them! Amazing falafel, tsatziki, pita...all of it. 4-course early bird for $15.99.

This is great Greek Food. The owners are the nicest people. Went out of their way to help out, constantly checking to make sure everything was as you wanted. The Spinach Pie was TO DIE for! Gyros for lunch, spinach pie, greek salad, fries etc. Have lunch lunch and dinner specials. Wines everywhere.

The food was mediocre at best. Except the Greek soup, which tasted like it was from a Campbells can. One star for semi-edible pita bread.

The place is overpriced to begin with, but occasionally has some good specials. But don't expect the owner, Christina, to honor the specials she advertises. Everything has fine print, be sure to double check.

The waiters are pretty good, but I cannot justify giving Christina's even one star in the "service" category due to how rude Christina herself was to us. She refused to honor a restaurants.com coupon that we had purchased, despite it stating clearly at the bottom "voucher does not expire", and went as far as to lock us inside her restaurant when we tried to leave, leaving the proper amount of money on the table, yelling at us, "Next time just go to McDonalds."

As my mother walked out of the restaurant to avoid confrontation and I stayed to square away the overcharged check, Christina told me "You are a young and beautiful girl-- just don't grow up to be like your mother."

Bottom line: Do not go to Christina's unless you have a very high tolerance for horribly offensive service.

I've eaten at Greek restaurants from Athens to Chicago. Christina's is authentic and good. Christina meets you at the door and pays attention to every patron. It is small and good.
