Even if you can't pronounce one word on our menu, you will love the authentic flavors brought over in the 1950's by Ted and Soula Jovaras. Our atmosphere is laid back so you can enjoy the very best Mediterranean flavors without emptying your wallet!

In 1955, Ted Jovaras and his wife Soula immigrated Limnos, a small Greek island, to avoid the depression in Greece.
They worked hard to support their family. From factory worker to ice cream man, to waiter, Ted's passion for pitas put him into the restaurant business — deciding to bring their Greek family recipes to Johnson County. Today, Ted's son Chris and his wife DeeDee run the restaurants, serving those recipes using the finest imported ingredients money can buy.
