This place, in its exceedingly humble, aged strip-mall digs, has been around a good, long while. Why? Others may have a more upscale atmosphere, this modest, dine-in/take-out deli has truly delicious food. The menu's not too expansive. In fact, it's emblazoned on all the tables in a kind of Waffle House-style. But what it lacks in variety it more than makes up for in quality, authenticity, flavor and heart. Gyros ($6.50 if you just get the sandwich) are huge, stuffed all the way through with succulent, seasoned meat and fresh-made tzatziki. Falafel is crisp-tender. Hummus is creamy with just the right balance of nutty tahini. There are a number of other items, too, all well executed. And the service? It simply doesn't get more gracious.

- Winter Park's Best Restaurants: "I haven't been to Greece yet, but I can vouch for Astoria, Queens. And you could plunk this place down on Steinway Street tomorrow and it would be just as well received."
- Best for Winter Park's Best Restaurants Because: As neighborhood as it gets, with delicious, generously portioned food and gracious service, it's a natural 10best inductee.
