    They removed the Greek salad from the menu. Keep asking for it and maybe they'll bring it back!

    Be wary. Sometimes they leave the food on the pickup counter so long it gets cold. Like the brisket here...

    Quality has dropped off fast. Service has been poor on the last three visits. Management in this location is uninterested in the situation.

    The lox and bagel platter is a ridiculously overpriced plate of lettuce with a "bagel". Don't bother.
