So who the heck won the vacation? You make mention of Quinn drawing the winning ticket and then don't say who won!!

Congrats Spiro. Ray Johnson is right. 15 years in Oak Park is like an eternity. We all know Oak Park is a terrible environment for business. The fact that the restaurant has been able to survive this long is remarkable. Oak Parkers don't like to spend money so I recommend you put a freeze on your menu prices.

Nick didn't have a bad meal. It sounds like it wasn't cheap enough for him.

Nick had a bad meal. He posted his comments. The comments are negative,however Nick in his opinion had a bad meal.I hope Nick spoke to the manager on duty about the bad meal. For the longest time, the reputation of McDonalds at Madison and Taylor was awful. Time and new management improved the McDonalds. This is an opinion,subjective,something to take note of nothing more.

Congrats Spiro! Always a big hello and great food. 15 years in Oak Park time is really like the Queens Jubilee. Good job!

The last time I ate at the restaurant I got a parking ticket. I over stayed the meter by about 4 minutes. If only the waiter had been a bit faster, or parking enforecement a bit slower...

One of my favorite places to go with the family in Oak Park. Delicious food and wonderful, enthusiastic service. Happy anniversary, Papaspiros!

I found this place to be reasonably priced with great service. I think Nicks comment is off base.

Once again WJ posters come through with negative comments. Way to keep up the tradition, Nick! By the way, this is our favorite restaurant in town not only because of the food but because of the service, too.

Nice story. Too bad the restaurant isn't a good value for the money.
