On December 7, 2016, Fodrak’s Great Gyros & Ribs celebrated 30 years under the ownership of proprietor and community icon Jim Lappas.
To celebrate this major milestone few restaurants ever see, Jim had three hundred 30th Anniversary Fodrak’s t-shirts made up in bright Heather Sapphire Blue and gave them to all the loyal customers who came out to celebrate.
Jimmy, as he is affectionately called by many long time patrons was thrilled with the turnout. “We gave away most of the t-shirts that day as a small token of our appreciation to all those in the community who have made our success possible. In fact, one of our customers, Bob Nasshan sent in a picture a week later wearing his 30th Anniversary Fodrak’s t-shirt from the sunny beaches of the Caribbean, which was posted to our Facebook Page.”
“When I first got started on December 7, 1987, my goal was to be a step above a fast-food restaurant,” said Jim. “I believe our success is due to a lot of hard work, 80-90 hour weeks, and a constant attention to quality and value for our customers. It’s allowed us to develop a good reputation in the community and loyal customers not only here in Libertyville, but in many of the surrounding communities including Vernon Hills, Mundelein, Gurnee and Grayslake.”
Fodrak’s, located at 327 S. Milwaukee Avenue, has been serving Libertyville and the Northern Illinois suburbs with its award-wining gyros, ribs, hand cut fries, and homemade milk shakes now for 30 years as well as providing quality catering to local businesses, community events, and family parties. Known as the “Best Gyros In Lake County”, due to Fodrak’s earning that award over a dozen times over the years, if you’re in the vicinity, stop in and say hi to Jimmy and congratulate him on this 30 years of success.
