“Friendly service, tasty Greek food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

Very enjoyable break from working at Archives 2 in College Park (and much, much better than the Archives 2 cafeteria!). Old style diner with comfortable booth and very efficient and friendly waitress. Lots of choices on the menu both American and Greek food. Generous portions, although a bit pricier than I expected from a diner. Enjoyed the Greek salad and chocolate cake with chocolate mousse mouse!

“Worth a try!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

This is a very understated, non-glitzy diner. The food is not superb but is very satisfying and filling. We've enjoyed it for breakfast and found it ok for dinner but not so good that we've rushed to go back. The atmosphere is relaxed and would be nice for a family of for a low-key lunch with a friend

“Typical diner”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

We arrived for a late dinner (after 10pm). Service was a little slow but the food was good. Being a college town, the prices were a little on the high side. I would return again.

“Great Diner!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

Extensive menu, great greek food, delicious desserts, and kid friendly. I have been here a few times and have never had anything I didn't like. Prepare to leave with left overs and desserts to go because there is so much food.

“Below Average Food, Silly PricesFraudulent website”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012 via mobile

Not worth the visit. Bad dinner food at high prices. Staff is rude. This isn't authentic anything, Greek or otherwise. Too many quality choices nearby to put up with this. Yuck!
