We started with a Horiataki Salad ($4.75) replete
with tomatoes, cucumbers and onions drizzled with olive oil and topped
with a large square of creamy Feta cheese. We also had an Octopus Salad
($4.25) with finely chopped octopus, red and green peppers, red onion,
parsley, oregano and oil and vinegar. Both are an excellent choice for a
warm summer evening.
Next we enjoyed the Greek Burger cooked to order and
served on pita bread with cubes of Feta cheese on the side. You can also
enjoy a Greek Veggie Burger ($3.75 regular, $5.75 deluxe).
There are daily specials that include such favorite
Greek items as Spinach Pie, spinach, Feta cheese and herbs baked in thin
phyllo dough ($3.50) and the Shish Kabob Platter, marinated cubes of lamb
with mushrooms, peppers, tomatoes and onions served with a Greek Salad,
pita bread, lemon and potatoes ($9.50). The Shish Kabob Platter can also
be had with cubes of chicken ($9.75).
The popular Gyro can be had as a side dish ($3.75)

or French fries ($8.50). Dieters have a choice of platters and there is a
