Pros: Absolutely some of the best and reasonably priced Mediterranean food in the area. The menu is fairly diverse and offers many vegetarian dishes. The hookah prices aren't bad, either.

Cons: The service.

I feel so conflicted about this place. Excellent food, but the service is slow, inattentive and at times, downright rude. I would discourage booking parties of six or more at this place since they can't seem to manage more than that. When you have to ask for a menu or water, you know things aren't going well with the staff.

Gabys has 2 location and one is a DRIVE THRU! The sit down restaurant is mostly under a tent like roofing, open air dining, complete with hookas. However, if you don't have time to sit and still crave their great greek food you can drive thru their other location, on Washington Blvd just west of Lincoln.They have several different combos to take home and enjoy. Convenient, fast, inexpensive, and good.

So, the pros: fresh food at reasonable prices
Unfortunately, more cons:
Bad, slow service. Plus, they consistently fluff up their tips if you pay my credit card. I go there often, as it's very conveniently located for me. And even though I tip 20 percent, they have always added more tip. This is downright unethical, and when I mention it to the waiters, they act like they don't care.

Consistently excellent food every time for a very reasonable price. All their ingredients are fresh and it makes a big difference. The music is a little annoying at times (volume) and the tvs can be distracting. This is a patio dining restaurant, so if second hand smoke turns you off - don't go, although I can usually find a table away from the smoking.

Sitting on this unpretentious restaurant's makeshift, blue-tented patio gives one the illusion of dining in a festive coastal cafe outside of Beirut, perhaps. Service and comfort are sacrificed here for authentic Lebanese cuisine at…
