WHY Dolmathes, saganaki, taramosalata, gyros, grilled lamb chops—and bonhomie.
WHAT George Loizides greets customers like family at this Pine Avenue institution serving hearty Greek specialties at reasonable prices. (Long Beach once had a vibrant Greek community, and this place carries on the tradition.) It’s a great place to go with a group and share the array of dips and appetizer combinations as well as the fun of saganaki, cheese flamed with brandy. Opa!
