Greek Restaurant
$$
“must visit. It's usually "out the door" packed with waits of up to two hours and they don't take reservations. Best time to go is during the day M-F and before 6pm. Weekends are always a zoo. When the food is that good and so fairly priced, you can understand having to wait a bit.”

I've had my birthday party here for years and they are always kind and great about us taking over the outdoor space. I highly recommend it!”
