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

    Very generous meat portions for 8 bucks. Leaves you satiated. One of the best food trucks in the city

    You have to try the mixed kebabs of lamb, chicken and pork slouvaki. Def one of the best I have tasted outside of Greece. Great value for the money.

    Lamb gyro.. delish!!

  • 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.

    Triple threat lamb is great

    Paul Singer · August 9, 2014
  • Chris P.

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

    Chris Pollone · August 6, 2014
  • Patrick G.

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

    Patrick Gille · June 19, 2014

    If they have the homemade orange cake make sure to get it

    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...
