“Pretty good Greek food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2013

I had one of the lunch specials (one-quarter chicken, with potatoes and salad) which was very good. I, too, am not enamored of standing in line to order, because you can be standing there for a while if you have an particularly indecisive person (or persons) ahead of you. Other than that, the food was tasty and the servers seemed nice. If you are in that part of town, not a bad place for lunch.

“Certainly acceptable but......................”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2012

If you are looking for a great dining experience, this is not the place. The restaurant serves good Greek food, You stand in line while you look over the menu, order at the counter and then find a seat. Shortly thereafter, they will bring you the drinks you ordered and then a little later, your food. Not a fan of their system. Might be OK for some but I didn't care for it at all.

When the food does arrive, we found it to be perfectly acceptable. It was tasty and seemed fairly priced. I've had better Greek food but I have also had worse.

If they change their approach to the dining experience, we may go back for a second visit. Until that happens, there are too many good Greek spots where service is part of the experience.

“Nice people - Nice Restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

We have been going at least twice a month since they opened. Love everything I have had, especially the lamb shank and the wonderful Greek potatoes.

“Great Food and Wonderful Service”

We really enjoy the Zorba's platter, with an extra side of zatziki and pita. The hummus is very tasty! Always attentive service!

“Wonderful Greek food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2012

This is a casual eating establishment. The food and the service was excellent. One gets great value for the cost of the meal. I have been eating there both lunch and dinner, and were very satisfied with both.
