Jiffy Shoppes owner George Agouridis continues his family’s 30-year legacy of good eats, treating bellies to a menu loaded with 23 subs, fresh pizzas, fried pickles, and breakfast sandwiches accented by his mother’s specialty Greek dishes. Dining pairs devise new twists on a traditional favorite by diving into the gyro platter’s appetizing display, rolling greek salad into thin slices of lamb or dipping crisp fries into the house’s special tzatziki sauce. Jewel-toned glasses of red or white wine crown the meal, and may incite toasts to good company or the health of a newborn mayor.
Each day, the culinary team crafts fresh dough and blends mozzarella with other cheeses to forge hot, bubbling pizzas, personalized by the addition of tempting toppings such as artichokes, gyro meat, or a signed photo of the chef. Signature gyros subs brim with savory spit-roasted lamb; italian hoagies insulate genoa salami, capicola ham, and pepperoni cold cuts in a fluffy bun. Sleepy palates wake up with 12 variations on the breakfast theme of eggs and bagels that include omelets, sandwiches, and huevos rancheros.
