The eatery has a large selection of appetizers that go well as starters, and also can be enjoyed as a quick meal.

The Hummus ($6.95) draws rave reviews from returning customers. The blend of garbanzo beans, tahini, fresh garlic and lemon is topped with olive oil and served with freshly baked pita bread. A hands-on eating experience awaits as customers dip the warm, fluffy pita in the hummus to create a mouth-watering combination of flavors.

Dive in for some Fried Calamari ($7.95) as the deep-fried morsels are served with a tangy garlic mayo sauce. The plentiful platter provides diners with a mountain of fried squid that gives the Acropolis a run for its money.

Those looking for a vegetarian-friendly option will enjoy the Falafel ($6.95), a mixture of crushed chick-peas, parsley, garlic and spices fried in fresh vegetable oil. The Spanakopita ($4.95), or spinach pie, features fresh spinach and feta cheese baked together in filo dough. The result is a flaky pastry-like dish with a buttery crust that seems to melt in your mouth.
