Amazing food! Worth a stop for a nice lunch.

The only place near a giant thermometer that you'll find a decent gyro or souvlaki.

Mad Greek Diner - Gaudy Statuary

The Mad Greek diner started in Baker, but its decorative riot of faux-Greek columns, classical statues and Greek flags -- not to mention its tasty and affordable food -- proved successful enough that it opened a branch restaurant in Las Vegas. The original in Baker is said to make a mean gyro and milk shake, and we keep meaning to allow enough time to actually eat there. But for now we just snap a picture.
