Fodrak’s Gyros and Ribs in Libertyville and owner Jim Lappas started their 25th Anniversary Year on Dec. 7 with an all-day celebration.
Libertyville Mayor Terry Weppler stopped by to help cut the anniversary cake.
Rich Maisel of Mettawa was announced as the winner of the contest for Fodrak’s custom guitar. Entries came from Libertyville and nearby communities with contestants ranging in age from 8 to over 60.
Customers were surprised throughout the day with gifts. Every 25th customer received a custom Fodrak’s hoodie. Other customers were surprised with coolers, Fodrak’s custom t-shirts and gift certificates. The kitchen ran out of the Surf ‘n Turf Anniversary Special early in the evening.
Jim Lappas enjoyed visiting with a lot of people he hadn’t seen for some time and reported a couple of customers sent him flowers. He said, “Thank you to all who helped make today a success. Thank you to all of Libertyville and surrounding towns for enabling us to continue serving you for the past 25 years!”
Fodrak’s has won several awards for Best Gyros in Lake County. Their Succulent Baby Back Ribs, Greek Baked Chicken, Black Angus Burgers and Salads made 100% with Romaine Lettuce along with a great choice of other entrees, sides and desserts have kept customers eating well for 25 years going on many more.
