Nice atmosphere! Really great guy at counter when we were ordering! He had very good recommendations! Good tzatziki sauce - big chunks of cucumbers! We will go again!

Mooney's is divine. My favorite thing on the menu is the Jezebel, a spicy chicken pita dish that makes me swoon with happiness. I am not vegetarian, but my friends who are rave it's the best veggie food in town (particularly the schwarma). Mooney is a great guy and runs a tight ship. The service is excellent and the sidewalk seating ideal for people-watching in summer.

Came to WS for a comedy show a few weeks ago, and saw Mooney's on TA, and decided to check it out. Service was excellent, and the food was served fast as well. I had the jezebell and it was awesome as others stated. My wife got the sampler, and was very pleased. The mousaka here is different since this is Lebonease, and not Greek, but she really enjoyed it. The grape leaves are made fresh here, and you can taste the difference.

Love, Love, Love this place. I crave it and can't wait to come back for a visit. The staff is awesome and the food is outstanding but in a very reasonable casual environment. The Greek Salad is one of my fav's but everything is so tasty and fresh. You've gotta go if you visit Winston-Salem!

I must have been to this restaurant at least once in every month for about 1.5 years before moving to Chicago. I always order the mixed appetizer plate with baba ganoush, but not hummus, since it usually comes with a main dish. My favorite dish is the chicken over rice. Their baklava ice cream is delicious, too.

After moving to Chicago, I tried a few middle Eastern restaurants searching for their baba ganoush, but have always been disappointed (at least so far). I miss them so much.
