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

    Order ahead at http://unclegussys.com/menu/ before 11:00 am and specify time for delivery or pickup. They do take credit cards and Paypal on line. Between 11:30 and 2:00 p.m. is their busiest times.

  • What's Good Here
    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.

    Greek chicken salad is great. Skip dressing and just add some tzaziki and hot sauce.

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

    Greek food truck with solid souvlaki, friendly service, and homemade Greek specials like pork chops and baklava. Lines can grow long; go early or late to skip the lunch rush.

    The chicken rice platter was very tasty. Smoky and tender pieces of chicken, grilled onions, tzatziki sauce, and hot sauce on rice and salad. Only thing negative is the rice is lacking a little...
