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!

We were in the area for a show and stopped in for dinner. We were very impressed with the food and the owners could not be nicer. Thanks also for the Baklava treat after our meal.

What an amazing family and veterans owned small business. The owners treated us, as first time customers, as if we'd been eating there for years. They have an easy and comfortable rapport with regulars without sacrificing warm hospitality toward newcomers. Even with all that, the...More

Great food, the people there are so very nice. The Lady at the front called at least 10+ people by name as they came in the door. She was so very nice. This place gets busy but 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.
