WHY Terrific homemade stuffed grape leaves, gyros and kebabs for cheap.
WHAT How can a tiny restaurant in an out-of-the-way Glendale location with no parking thrive for more than three decades? By offering satisfying, tasty food at unbelievably low prices. We are addicted to Elena’s version of stuffed grape leaves, but occasionally fall off the wagon to indulge in the generous gyros or shish kebab platters. You really have to work hard to spend more than $15 per person. At these prices, don’t expect a fancy décor—the dining room is basically a patio enclosed with canvas and clear plastic.
