This is one my favorite restaurants in the Rio Grande Valley. Love the hummus and the roasted red pepper dip. My husband likes the artichoke dip. The flat bread is awesome.

I went here for a casual lunch, it was okay but nothing great. I know other people seem to really like the place. I had the saled and hummus, but it was somthing I could have made at home.

Good take on Greek style food. Big salads and gyros. Have not had a had item off the menu yet. Usually go for lunch, but bar looks like it could be fun.

This restaurant has a very interesting and varied menu, consisting largely of salads, sandwiches, wraps, and pizzas. Our party of four ordered four different dishes and everyone was very pleased with their choice. Not only was the food delicious, but there was also plenty of it.

We were there strictly for the Mediterranean fare. We started with the three-dip appetizer; hummus, goat cheese and roasted garlic, and mushrooms. Holy cow they were fantastic.
