This looks like an older Mexican restaurant that is in real need of painting and repairs. There are water marks all over the ceiling, and it just didn't seem really clean. The food was okay. I ordered the vegetarian platter and the hummus was just...More

This is the best place for food. Service is great. I love the salmon on Thursday and Fridays, cooked just right and melts in your mouth. The serving sizes are just right and I am always satisfied when I leave. The greek chicken salad is...More

This is a great place for a date to just sit and talk. The Gyros are the best in Columbia and made from real meat, not the thinly sliced processed crap you usually get everywhere else.

I love this hummus over any other in town. And there are delicious seafood-over-salads or dinner plate specials. Cooked to perfection all seemingly from your mother's kitchen, served hot and seasoned to the YUM factor. It's a tiny appearing building but roomy inside With smells...More
