    Nicky on the graveyard shift is da bomb! She's the best No doubt. Debbie after 11 is also "THE" Hostess. She's been here since I first stumbled in here after clubbing in the 80s. She's good people! <3

    It's not only a restaurant,it's a Ft.Lauderdale landmark since the 1960's. Anything breakfast or Greek is very good! I also <3 the waitresses' old-school, refuse-to-kiss-any-customers'-@$$ mentality.

    A typical diner with a lot of history. Some of the waitresses scare me a little...which I like. Get the stuffed cabbage....trust me.
