    Delicious! Gluten free friendly to the max. You order inside then wait for your food to be ready then you seat yourself-- pretty nice to save on a tip so you can spend more on good food!

    Great place to get drunk cheap. The carafe of Greek house white is a steal and delicious. Stay away from familiar grapes like moscato. Try moschefilero. The Greeks do dry white like no one else.

    So I can't say this for certain because it has been tasty before, but the falafel they have now is probably the most terrible thing I've ever eaten. Period.

    If you’re after something quick, the excellent pork souvlaki wrapped with feta in warm, soft pita is the way to go—it’s one of our favorite sandwiches in the area

    Great patio and reasonably priced food, it's the one place my mom and I can agree on when she visits. I love that the beer always comes in a frosted mug and all of the fries are superb.

    I found the falafel sandwich to be overrated (it was too mushy). The chicken dishes are well cooked, though.
