Select Local Merchants

Charo Chicken fire-grills an array of sharable meals and Mexican-influenced cuisine that can easily fit into a healthier diet. With the eatery’s fit-fare menu, diners can select lower-calorie offerings such as the Fiesta ensalada entree salad, corn on the cob, and vegetarian black beans, which are more digestible than carnivorous black beans that simply eat each other. Opt for dine-in or delivery, or order catering for special occasions.

George’s Greek Café

Father-son endeavors usually reflect a common interest—model rockets, cars, etc. For George and Demitri Loizides, that common bond is a mutual love of food and county. At their eatery, George’s Greek Café, dad George brings 48 years of experience in the deli and market business, while Demitri brings 28 years spent working in the restaurant industry. The younger Loizides does most of the cooking, but those who know the family might swear his mother, Rodou, was behind it. Demitri copies techniques he learned from her, including using only fresh, healthy ingredients––such as extra virgin olive oil––and making everything from scratch each day, from the humus and saganaki, to the beef and lamb gyros and baklava. For a genuine Greek experience, the Loizides recommend that diners dig in with their fingers. The Lakewood location’s décor also helps transport guests to the Mediterranean, starting with the murals—one of a hillside crowned with crumbling columns, another depicting a typical Grecian seaside village, complete with whitewashed walls and lamps lit with flaming cheese.
