“Good sandwich!”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

My local friend recommended this place, so we stopped by for lunch late one afternoon... Turns out they were just closing but were very nice and said we could take an order to go. I had a chicken salad sandwich on sub roll. It was delicious! The fries were fresh (watched the cook throw out the old fries and make fresh ones) and very tasty.

For a quick bite for lunch, this is a great stop! I highly recommend it if you're in downtown!

“Good Falafel for Vegetarians!”
Reviewed May 24, 2013

Good Falafel and fresh batter onion rings. The atmosphere is outdated but the food is great! Their fries are good too, and the food is freshly made so you have to wait few mintues but its worth the wait.

“simple grilled cheese”
Reviewed July 19, 2012

Discovered the $3 grilled cheese on the menu recently. Quick, simple, delicious. Greasy...but that's par for the course with grilled cheese! A lunch-only spot, Ankar's is a good choice for a quick meal - greek selections and more. The locals eat here - it's not haute cuisine, it's an everyday work lunch.

“Surprisingly good”
Reviewed July 1, 2012

I say "surprisingly" because it looks like a less-than-impressive fast food joint, but the food is really quite good. My mom loves the falafel, and having tasted it I can see why, and I think the chicken suvalaki is outstanding. My dad got a sub and was less impressed -- I'd suggest sticking to the more Mediterranean/middle east food on your first visit. Because of the modest decor I wouldn't go here to impress a first date, but I can easily see it becoming a favorite local spot.
