As the reviews all state, this place serves fresh, delicious Greek food. The staff is friendly. The dining room is loud. It is a wonderful place . . . and it's even better if you know what you're getting into.
First, look for a street parking spot instead of banking on one in the small parking lot. The street is so close that it's almost faster than squeezing into a spot in the lot.
Second, read the specials on the chalkboard as you come in the door. They're not posted around the corner. Also note that the person taking your order will scratch off numbers on a piece of paper if you do order a special since they have limited quantities. This isn't Cracker Barrel.
Third, be prepared to recite your order. Feel free to ask questions, but also be aware that there might be 20 people behind you waiting in line. Don't forget to order dessert since you don't want to get back in line later. Also, they'll give you cups for tap water, so don't feel pressured to buy the bottled water.
Fourth, take the pager and head for a table. Grab silverware rolled in napkins across from the cash register. If you need more chairs, ask adjacent tables for extras. When the pager goes off, look for a staff member who will be looking for you. Wave them over, hand them the pager, and then they'll start bringing out your food as it is ready.
Fifth, clean up your table when you're finished. Put paper in the garbage slot and everything else in the bussing bins. They'll clean up if you leave everything, but it's common courtesy to clear your own table.
I'd like to hear what others think about whether a tip should be added with the credit card payment or left at the table. It's great service and food, but it's counter service. I'm assuming a tip is unnecessary, but I'd like to hear what other people do.
