We don’t get to dine in very often but we have carry out orders at least every other week. Everything is absolutely delicious and we would recommend this restaurant to anyone who is looking for a delicious meal!

So don't let the location or front entrance by the quick mart scare you off. This was one of the best food experiences we had on our Chicago trip. Truly a family run business that takes pride in what they serve and their customer service....More

The food is terrific here! Service is friendly and quick. My friend from Lebanon told me it tasted like home to her. I am a MIdwestern gal but love this food and this humble spot. Eat there and order more to take home. Worth it!

Prices are very reasonable any where from 5 to about 9 per meal. They serve Mediterranean, think: shiskabobs, falafel, gyros, rice. But they also serve up french fries, burgers, dogs, sandwiches. Pretty good food.
