Client Reviews

Chose this place for lunch yesterday, and it exceeded my expectations. Probably the best chicken gyro I've ever had. The Greek salad was fresh (dressing was amazing) and the hummus was perfect. The staff is friendly and quick. Will definitely be back.

Epitomizing the glory of small business, Effie's is an awesome place for folks of all ages to have a great breakfast. Fast, tasty, reasonably priced, and the wait staff is all very friendly.

Effie's is what a family restaurant should be. They have a "diner" like menu but Effie's is much more. The staff are all wonderful and it's comfort food at it's finest. They have specials daily so I am sure you will always find something you like. Everything is great!

The staff is great. Food is cooked perfectly and well presented. The owner is usually around and a complete delight. Worth the tight parking.

My new favorite place! The staff was so friendly and attentive. The food was fresh and delicious. Best steak fries I've had ever! The cookie dough brownie pie was warmed with ice cream and whipped cream and was delcious.
