Broadway Diner:

Passion for Customer Service and Good Food Anyone who claims to be a “foodie,” and is worth his or her salt, knows that the best place to eat has a diversified menu containing a good smattering of upscale foods of comfort. In Bartow, Broadway Diner has contemporary interpretations of Southern classics, homestyle and comfort foods in abundance. As one foodie described it, “eclectic array of culinary offerings to please the most discerning palate.” Oh, yeah. Words (such as the above) don’t begin to describe the standard of cooking, quality of presentation and service that owners and partners of Broadway Diner, Bill Gergatsoulis and Dino Sakelliadis, provide. Both owners were born in America and sent to Greece by parents to soak up the culture of the Island. “My parents had to work hard for money in New York,” Bill said about his Dad who owned a hot dog stand in New Sunset Park. His Dad taught him to choose high quality food. Dino said that his Dad owned a restaurant in Chicago, and instilled in him his passion for the business. “Bill and I do everything here. We cook, clean tables, get refills on drinks, we wait on tables, greet people at the door –anything we can do. Good customer service is important to us. Our parents taught us not to be afraid to throw it away if it wasn’t up to our high standards,” he continued. “Don’t serve what you won’t eat.” Bill and Dino met up again in America as roommates, while Dino was running the Fast & Tasty in Fort Meade. After awhile, while working other jobs, they heard about a restaurant building available in Bartow. “We got to meet Chuck Young (who owns the building), and he turned out to be a very nice person to work with,” Bill said. The restaurant, where Fred’s Southern Kitchen used to be in the Badcock Plaza, got a Mediterranean-style facelift, a new menu, and two owners dedicated to making Broadway Diner the best thing that ever happened to Bartow. “When you come here you’ll forget about what used to be here,” Dino said. Broadway Diner offers a private room that may be used for parties, showers, wedding rehearsal dinners, etc. The meeting room may seat 50 diners comfortably, offers wifi, and a hook up to a television screen for presentations. And don’t forget to check with Broadway Diner if you need catering for a special event. A Broadway Diner breakfast can be ordered until 2:00 p.m. on any day. Of course, the breakfast includes all the comforting mainstays of a traditional morning meal made by Mom such as eggs, bacon, sausage, pancakes, etc. But if you want something really eye-popping, try one of the 4-egg omelets, served with home fries, or grits and a biscuit or toast. On the menu are 13 choices – from Meatlovers to Spinach to Mushroom and Swiss to The Ultimate. The owners’ formula for large portions at affordable prices, seems to be working, as many diners choose to have an omelet for lunch. You’ve got to try one to believe it. Broadway Diner offers breakfast specials every day beginning at $1.99 for ½ order of biscuits and gravy, to 2 eggs with home fries or grits and biscuit or toast for just $3.99 until September. After that, you can look for new specials as they are always

trying to change things up a little, Rachel Rayl, Business Development Manager, said. Lunch and dinner specials are also offered, noted Ms. Rayl. “We have offerings such as Spinach Pie or Beef Tips; and sometimes we cook up something unusual you won’t find on the menu, so be sure to ask about the specials of the day,” she said. All you can eat of the ultimate comfort food - fried chicken - is every Wednesday after 4 p.m., and on Mondays you can buy one, get one, free spaghetti marinara, also after 4 p.m. Sandwiches and salads are varied; and it’s important to note that the Cubans are authentic, the Reubens come in two varieties, and the hamburgers are a humongous ½ pound burger on a Kaiser roll. The Greek salad is to die for! And, you’ve got to try the cheese balls appetizer. They’re made from a unique blend of two cheeses, fresh, not frozen, right on the spot. “Our customers are learning about them, and they’re getting popular,” Dino said. And don’t forget the gyros (pronounced: yeer-ohs), in classic with lamb meat or chicken. All of the sandwiches are served with coleslaw and a choice of sweet potato fries (yummy!) or regular French fries, rice or mashed potatoes or veggie of the day. Broadway entrees include high quality IBP CHOICE beef, all handcut daily (Sirloins, Delmonicos, New York Strips and Chopped Steak); chicken (country fried, wings, grilled chicken breasts, tenders); fish (filets, salmon, crab cakes, clam strips and haddock); and an assortment of pasta. A Kid’s Corner is on the menu and kids can actually eat free after 4:00 p.m. on Tuesdays. www . B a R T O W C H A M B E R . com

“We try to please every palate,” Ms. Rayl noted. And it shows. Recently, Broadway Diner was named “2015 Best All Round Restaurant of Polk County,” by the readers of The Polk County Democrat. But, don’t take all of Bartow’s word for it, stop in and try it for yourself! For more information, call Rachel, Dino or Bill at Broadway Diner, (863) 537-7647.

to Promote Ethnic and Racial Equality To reaffirm its commitment to racial and ethnic equality, the City of Bartow’s Community Relations Committee (CRC) will hold a Diversity Luncheon on September 16, 2015, at noon, at the Bartow Civic Center in conjunction with Bartow’s Race Equality Week, the week of September 13-19, 2015. The week is set aside by Bartow’s City Commission to spotlight racial and ethnic equality and justice issues that confront people every day. “There are daily reminders to us all of how important this issue still is in America, and that promoting racial and ethnic equality and ending racism and discrimination requires awareness, commitment, and action,” said Gloria Washington, Chairman of the CRC. “This is an opportunity for Bartow to stand up and be counted in an ongoing effort to make sure our community fosters racial and ethnic equality and harmony.” The annual Diversity Award will be presented to a business or organization and an individual at the luncheon. Nominations are being accepted for the award. Tickets for the Diversity Luncheon are $10 each and may be purchased at the Greater Bartow Chamber of Commerce.
