Critic's Review

Well I drove all to way to Boca to find that the place I was headed wasn't open, so I ended up here.

I almost didn't go in. The main door opens to a room that looks like a bad, outdated pizzeria, and I wasn't eating there. I saw the dining room and decided it was good enough.

Hardly luxury dining; this was the 2nd place I'd been to this week with maroon vinyl table coverings. The place is very casual; not unlike a pizzeria. It reminded me of the old Aegean Restaurant in the Times Square Mall in Melville; a place we used to eat once a week before they tore it down.

Iced tea comes in a jumbo plastic glass; Greek restaurants always have plenty of lemon but they don't any any blue or yellow sweeteners here. So I was stuck drinking it unsweetened.

It was 2:56 and they stop serving lunch at 3pm sharp; I just got in under the gun. I ordered the Chicken Ladoregano with a Greek salad and lemon potatoes.

Music here is traditional greek, at a low enough level that you can't really hear specifics. The food took longer than I expected; I figured I'd get the salad first, but it all came on one plate.

A pretty good salad, although it would have been better on a separate plate. It was difficult to keep everything on the plate without having it flop on the table. The potatoes were lousy; too well done and not lemony enough. The big chicken cutlet was the star of this dish; it needed salt but it was a nice hunk of protein.

As I as paying my check, the waiter lit up a plate of Saganaki; flaming cheese in a literal sense.

Fairly priced decent food in a kind of dumpy place here in the land of Strip Malls.
