Run by John the Greek himself (along with his wife), this restaurant serves up home-style Greek favorites with an authentic flavor. The decor is nothing special, but the food makes this place worth a visit. Along with very good gyros, it offers moussaka, pastitsio, spanikopita, baklava and other traditional favorites. The stuffed grape leaves are just like the ones made in the mother country. The restaurateurs bottle their own Greek salad dressing as well.
