Famous Midtown Grill
When Gerasimo “Jerry” Dimitratos and Dimitrious “Jimmy” Doris took over Famous Midtown Grill in 1998, they got to work giving the place a makeover. They installed the handful of neon signs that now light up the diner and updated the menu with all manner of Greek specialties, including Greek salads, a dozen wraps named for Greek gods, and the local favorite—the gyro. But the two knew where to stop, and the corner diner still retains its mid-century charm, complete with backlit menu boards, a counter that runs the length of the space, and the art deco “Midtown Grill” sign that sprawls along the side of the building.
On any given day, the Grill feeds more than 100 hungry lunch customers. Many of them sidle up to the counter for a trademark plate of gravy covered cheese fries, or the Hot Texas Weiner served with a homemade sauce created by the original owners in 1959. Classic American breakfast dishes are served all day, including 20 varieties of omelets and corned beef and hash, each served with a side of grits, home-fries, or freedom.
