Good Greek food at reasonable prices. The servings are plentiful, the combination plate was large enough for leftovers. The Saganaki (flaming cheese) is my favorite appetizer. Nice outdoor seating area but the inside also has a good ambiance. Good service and friendly waitress.

Excellent food and service at great prices. Beware that you will either get no more than three refills on your drink, or you will have to wait for a long time. Once you have completed your order, it can take a while to receive your...More
