    The line is absurd, but if you're willing to wait it out the lamb is delish.

    There's a reason why there's a line. The flavorful Greek plates here rival many restaurants. Do not be tempted by the fries. They are addictive.

    Lamb on Greek salad was yum. Maybe too much leafs in salad, not enough of the other veg advertised. But still delicious.
