A friend wanted to eat here, so I went along. I had a gyro and a small Greek salad. The food was nearly flavorless. The meat was greasy and the sauce had little tang. The Greek salad was equally dull, with a literal thimble full...More

I'm sorry that you did not bring this to our attention when you were here. We strive to bring only the freshest, best tasting ingredients to each and every customer. Our tzatziki is made in house with Greek yogurt, cucumber, garlic, and some additional spices....More

Delicious gyros & Greek salad! I have only eaten at the restaurant once (which was fine) but we have used them to cater in lunches several times. It's delicious, reasonably priced and different from the "same ol thing". I recommend it!

Thank you for your feedback. It is true that the space can feel empty, especially on a Saturday!! 99% of our business comes from the lunch crowd during the week. I'm surprised that you didn't see the homemade chocolate cake, homemade baklava, or homemade chocolate...More

1/2 " thickness of meat in gyros, (app.. 6 layers). When I order a gyro, I expect it overflowing with meat. Spinach Pie? just spinach with dough. No feta. . Disappointed!

Things are not what they used to be. We have been many times in the past, but this most recent visit will be our last. It was actually an embarrassment to see the complete lack of professionalism. Every month on the first Friday, there is...More
