    The Greek-Fire Feta or Tirokafteri is a great way to start the meal - spicy Feta cheese whipped with red pepper and Greek olive oil, served with crisp Greek pittas.

    Order the tasty Shish Kabob made with marinated beef tenderloin, skewered with onions, tomatoes & bell peppers, served over rice with a house made bread roll.

    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!

    Ordered a gyro so I could compare it to other Greek restaurants. Hands down, one of the best I've had. Very flavorful. This place is going on my favs list.

    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 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.

    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.

    My dish (salad & souvlaki) was authentic Greek, with the right flavor. The experience was let down in the restroom though, with clogged toilets and accompanying smell.

    The Vegetable Meze, with sides of pita, and hummus, is a tasty, light, and healthy meal.

    Authentic Greek food that is naturally healthy & satisfying. I used to eat here weekly with a group of friends - everyone found something they liked, and there are lots of vegetarian options. Read more

    The Zorba's combination platter is very good. Yeah, the 2nd floor is better to sit.

    Great Greek food. A bit pricey. A mix of casual fast food and sit down.

    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.

    Souvlaki or Gyro Plate. You will not regret - especially when paired with a pitcher.

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