The BBQ chicken salad with Greek salad is an amazing lunch. If you ask for the pita whole you can make your own sandwich. The roast lamb literally melts in your mouth. I've never been to Greece but Zorba's makes me want to go.

While I was dining there, I actually heard a vegetarian order food. I am not sure about peppers, I would call them and ask. They were very accommodating to us and the tables around us. The food was very fresh and very good!
