Greek Combo

This month we are featuring a tasty combination of two favorites: Greek Ribs and Lamb Chops. Your meal starts off with garlic bread and a Greek salad made with romaine lettuce, feta cheese, tomatoes, green peppers, onions, cucumbers, olives and our homemade Greek dressing. The main entree combines our original Greek ribs, topped with our signature Greek sauce of lemon, olive oil, garlic and herbs and 2 tender lamb chops, accompanied with Greek oven-roasted red potatoes.

Suggested Wine: Makedonikos Red Wine
