By SCOTT McCLOSKEY
WEIRTON — Theo Yianni’s Restaurant in Weirton continues to provide the best authentic Greek and American cuisine in a relaxing and fun family environment, according to co-owners Yianni Bourbakis and Shawn Mihellis.
The tasty new Theo salmon salad and hot stuffed pepper sandwich are just two items listed on their new menu, according to Bourbakis. He said they continue to pride themselves on keeping the food preparation consistent. “Everytime you get a gyro, or everytime you get something special, it is the same thing everytime,” he said.
Other menu favorites that are sure to please include: gyros with Greek fries, 8-ounce bistro beef tenderloin, Mediterranean shrimp and bourbon-glazed salmon.
In addition, Yianni’s offers a variety of burgers, including a Greek bruschetta burger or, the hometown favorite, Frank’s Famous French-burger. Their new Mediterranean-style peppers are quickly becoming another customer favorite, according to Mihellis. The children’s menu also offers plenty of choices, including buttered noodles, chicken fingers, hotdogs and grilled cheese sandwich.
“The gyro and Greek fries — that’s like the go-to,” Mihellis said. “People love our wings as well. … We have a brick oven pizza section, and we do specialty pizzas.” he added.
“What makes our restaurant special is of course the family environment,” said Mihellis. Patrons can catch a glimpse of their favorite sporting event on one of the nearly dozen large flat screen TVs positioned around the inside of the restaurant, including a bar area. They offer a large selection of beer and wine, and they recently added outdoor patio seating near the entrance to the restaurant.
“We are just thankful for all our faithful customers and all the new customers that come in,” Mihellis added.
Theo Yianni’s is located at 322 American Way, which is located just off the Colliers Way exit.
