Steve Moumouris and wife Sia met each other more than 30 years ago at a family restaurant working as a dishwasher and a server, and they are still working together as the owners of Takis Restaurant and Pizza in Eustis, Florida. The couple began working with Steve’s father when he purchased Takis in 1986, but took over as full-time owners in 2003.
“We both grew up in the restaurant business” Sia said. “We are from Greece and have that big family background centered around food. It’s basically ‘My Big Fat Greek Wedding’ in real life.”
Takis has both Italian and Greek cuisine, offering traditional dishes such as pastas, pizzas, gyros and salads. Steve makes the lasagna and sauces while Sia sticks to the traditional Greek entrees such as the gyros and baklava.
