A Cyprus native who grew up in a sun-soaked village with just 1,500 inhabitants, Doros Hadjisavva only meant to visit the United States for a year before returning home. Instead, waylaid by love, he found himself setting down roots in Evansville and bringing the sights and flavors of Cyprus to the US with authentic Greek and Mediterranean dishes. The most eye-catching of these is imported Greek kasseri cheese, which servers flame tableside in brief but intense blazes. Chefs also prepare homemade marinara, tangy feta, or thick, creamy tzatziki alongside moussaka and succulent lamb shanks. Each dish bursts with flavor derived from fresh ingredients, time-tested recipes, and seafood stolen from Aquaman’s summer home. Inside Acropolis’ dining room, marble surfaces and creamy tiles meet the eye as vine-entwined lattices arch overhead.

When a pizza-craving stomach rumbles in the city, the drivers at Heady's Pizza stand ready to bring it made-to-order pizzas, sub sandwiches, and appetizers any time between 10 a.m. to 2 a.m. Each time the phone rings or an order comes in, cooks begin crowning pizzas with classic toppings of mozzarella cheese and pepperoni as well as inventive sauce bases such as alfredo, pesto, and ranch. While pizzas are baking, the cooks layer sub sandwiches with at least a half pound of meat, preparing the restaurant's signature Chicken Blah Blah subs covered in Blah sauce, mozzarella cheese, and bacon. Carnegie Deli cheesecake slices and baked-to-order cookies end meals on a note as sweet as those played by the horn section of Candyland's marching band.

Bright-colored balls have sent pins crashing at Franklin Bowling Lanes for years.
