Gyro with chicken, beef, lamb mix excellent. Sage tea refreshing. Dolmas served hot top notch. Hummus has garlic aftertaste- which I like, served with hot dipping bread. Almond baklava best ever. Great value too.

We went based on the reviews. The gyros, hummus, and baklava were all good. The gyro is definitely enough to share. The prices are kind of high for a combo meal. I didn't care for the pistachio dessert.

Hi We don't provide a parking since we are on the Main Street It's $1 per hour on the main road or you can use the public parking lots which usually cheaper if you plan on staying longer in town.
