This tiny unassuming, no frills restaurant is a find. The menu states it was established in 1976--not sure if it has always been at this location but the food represents years of serving guests unique, savory meals. We visited with a Groupon and were immediately...More

Back again -- for the umpteenth time. Whatever you choose, Max will cook it up deliciously. This place is a gem -- but don't tell everyone! Salmon, chicken, hummus. Great Middle-Eastern food. If you haven't tried this cuisine -- try it here!
