It isn't fine dining, but for fast meals and late night cravings along the Boardwalk, those in the know turn to this lilliputian food counter where dollar bills stand in for wallpaper. They sling burgers and dogs, but simple Greek food is where they excel. Grab a gyro on the way to the beach or back from the casino, or opt for a quick breakfast, which is served all day long. In the summer, they're generally open 24 hours a day.

Racism is definitely still alive and thriving within this establishment! My family and I attempted to eat breakfast here. We were waiting at the entrance for about five minutes before a table large enough for my whole family to sit down. We found a table in the far back corner of the restaurant. Once we sat down we simply organized all of the waste from the previous meal on the end of the table and wiped it down with a few napkins while waiting
for a waiter to come clean off the waste and do a final wipe. They kept telling us that we needed to move so that they could clean the table but we straightened it all up and simply needed menus. They guy ignored us and placed menus on the tables around us. I assumed that he did not understand what we were asking so I attempted to explain that what we needed, but he kept ignoring us. I then got my family up and left. On the way out they were telling another African American family to wait for them to clean the table that they already cleaned. When we were outside a black guy came out and said he has been waiting. Also on the was out the waiter was cleaning a table while a white couple sat at the table. He did not have a problem wiping around her Dunkin Donut's coffee cup while they sat at the table. I asked to speak to an owner regarding why a white couple could get their table wiped off while sitting there but they insisted that I take my family back to the front door to wait so that my table could be wiped off. The guy did not respond to my question! Maybe it was because he was adamantly insisting that no outside beverages could be brought into the restaurant. The African American lady was waiting at the door to be seated while completing a cup of Dunkin Donuts coffee. She mentioned the cup of Dunkin Donuts coffee on the people's table in front of her, but all the man behind the counter responded with was "we do not allow outside items in here". At this moment my 10 year old daughter asked why does it seem like he is giving all of the black people a hard time. I simply told my daughter that we could find better service and be appreciated as people in another establishment. Their actions was enough for not only my wife and myself, but my 10 year old, to clearly understand that they did not want nor care to have patrons of color within their establishment.
