There's Fabulous Gyro, Souvlaki And Chicken
Romano’s Pizza is a great local place to stop into anytime for a high quality, delicious meal, served quickly in a pleasant atmosphere. There's always a hungry crowd at Romano's because the prices are unbelievably low and the food is always fresh, and cooked before your eyes. Owner Bobby Tsambazis keeps the pleasant dining room sparkling clean and well attended. Recent renovations include ceramic tile floors and oak paneling adorned with murals of Greek seaside villages. Fresh flowers grace each table.
Originally a pizza parlor, Romano has grown over the years and expanded its menu to include some wonderfully juicy and tender souvlaki, gyro, chicken, steaks and chops from the grill. The pizza is still great, with a crispy crust and just the right amount of sauce, cheese and favorite toppings.
Enjoy a glass of wine or Mythos Greek beer and Romano's delicious appetizers. Romano's spinach pie features flaky pastry stuffed with mouth-watering spinach and feat cheese ($3. 25). Spicy buffalo wings, mozzarella sticks or crispy zucchini sticks, are all great for sharing. Greek salad, full of crunchy greens, peppers, onions and topped with chunks of creamy feat cheese, olives and dolmades (stuffed grape leaves) with some warm pita bread could be a meal in itself ($5).
Romano's gyro and souvlaki have become increasingly popular. Choose among chicken souvlaki, traditional lamb souvlaki, or sausage gyros, slow-roasted for delectable flavor. For those who can't decide, there's a combination platter of two meats plus the chicken. The chicken chunks are juicy, tender and succulent. All platters are served with a small Greek salad and crispy French fries. There's even fried fish or a chicken finger plate (real strips of fresh chicken, not the frozen kind) that is very popular with the kids. You'll also get warm pita bread to soak up all the flavors on your plate as well as the creamy tzatziki sauce. At about $8. 35, the platters are a great value. Any of those juicy grilled meats can be served as a pita sandwich for about $4. 90. They make a great lunch and Romano's does a very brisk take out business with free delivery for orders of $8 or more.
Other entrées include grilled rib eye steak, cooked to order for $13. 95, or tender lamb chops, all served with the same side orders as the platters. Rotisserie chicken is marinated in special seasonings then slow cooked on a spit to render it tender and juicy. A half chicken with side dishes costs only $7. 60 and is perfect for taking home after a hard day's work. Romano's will deliver your lunch or dinner to your home or office at no extra charge.
Pizza started it all at Romano's and they continue to make crispy pan pizza with all the favorite toppings. A 10-inch personal pan pizza is only $4. 20 and makes a nice lunch. An 18-inch pan pizza is also a bargain at $9. 95. For a dollar more add a topping such as pepperoni, mushroom, sausage or ham. Individual slices are also available. For lunch, dinner or snack, try their deluxe charcoal burgers, plain or topped with cheese and served with yummy French fries. The calorie-conscious can get a turkey burger with a small tossed salad.
Romano's Pizza is open seven days a week from 11a. m. to midnight. To keep prices low, only cash is accepted. Beer and wine is available and so is free delivery.
