S unday night as the New York Jets met the Pittsburgh Steelers on a frozen field in Pennsylvania, the staff at the Greek House of Pizza was busy making food for the hungry fans camped in front of televisions around Granville.
After a few years away the same folks who had the Granville House of Pizza on Main Street have a new location, but the same good food.
Bill and Christina Staikos said they wanted to give running another restaurant a try and jumped at the opportunity to open up on West Main Street.
“Both of us were working places and we decided we’d give it one more try,” Christina Staikos said.
The reaction from customers has been great, they said.
The couple said customers who can remember their last restaurant have been stopping in to welcome them back as well as pick up some food.
“The customers are happy to see us and we’re happy to be here,” she said. “They’re stopping in to say welcome back, we missed the food.”
When asked what they specialize in, other than the pizzas, Christina Staikos said: “A little bit of everything, we’ve got gyros, sandwiches, salads, dinners…”
The menu goes on to include several gourmet pizzas, including veggie, Mexican and Buffalo chicken as well as wings. The Greek Pizza is another specialty of the house featuring spinach, olives, feta cheese, fresh garlic and tomatoes – the unique pie does not have pizza sauce.
Having just opened the doors on Jan. 10, Christina Staikos said the plan is to add delivery service some time next month.
Greek House of Pizza is open Monday to Thursday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., also Sundays from 4 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Call 642-2018 or 642-2058 to order.
