The food is delicious!!! Just remember to bring cash because they don’t accept cards. I go here to eat and read a book all the time.

This place is consistently good. The prices are reasonable and it is byob and only cash. Expect to wait during busy times.

We have been eating here for almost 20 years. The lamb chops is great. Best shaved gyros in Baltimore by a mile. Excellent loukaniko. Great Greek soups and deserts too!
