Place is filthy. Table was dirty, salt and peppers shakers were nasty. cups were dirty. Hostess/server was rude.

I didnt want to offend anyone so we said we were waiting for someone....so we only had a cup of coffee (had to ask for

I eat out at least 8 meals a week including business lunches, so I know a good restaurant.....this is not one. Very Expensive and food is hit and miss.

I ordered a full rack of ribs for $18. I got a plate of very meaty ribs, but only 7 bones. I told the waitress that she must have given me a half rack and she replied that that was a full rack. So I guess the standart 12-15 bones in a full rack does not apply here. If I ask for a dozen eggs will they give me 6? Shrimp basket was basically popcorn shrimp for almost $11. WOW French onion soup was average, 2 different potato sides were terrible, cherry pie was below average. Kids chicken strip meal was a total rip off....2 very small strips and about 9 fries for $5.50.....It did include a kids soda and Jello, but come on. I did have a good rueben there, but it better be for over $8. I won't be back. I love gyros, but I wont get one here for over $10(does include fries). Gyro Palace (several locations) has the best Gyro ever for 4.99. I work 3 minutes from there and have at least 2 a week.

Maybe other items are good that I did not try, but the menu in general seems about 10-15% higher priced than comparable Greek and family restaurants.

I had gone with some friends of mine to eat there in the evening. A very regrettable decision. The place itself is very plain on the outside and very dirty on the inside. The host, a heavier gentleman with a goat tee, sat us in a booth that was sticky because it was not cleaned properly, and had a seat cushion with some food on it. I brought it to his attention, and he preceded to give me menacing look, before he went a got a towel to clean to it. The server we had, looked like somebody who had been on a drinking and smoking binge for the last week. She was forgetful, about a handful of items, and generally showed a disinterest in our table. We considered to ask the manager, what the problem was, because he seemed preoccupied smoking and gambling on the slot machines. Long story short we expected the food to at least make up for the poor service and atmosphere, but unfortunately, that to was disappointing. Normally in a Greek restaurant, you we get excellent hot food, and generous portions. In this restaurant, it's food that is small in portion, cheap quality in meat, and poor tasting. To make matters worst, I saw they were placed on Dirty Dining on tmj4. Needless to say I will not be back, and hopefully this review will save someone from a poor dining experience.
