Since 1970 our Family has been serving your Family.
We greatly appreciate your patronage and no words can say it better than
“Thank You Very Much”
THANK YOU for joining us today—and for being a part of a decades-long neighborhood tradition. On behalf of owner Bob Theodosiadis, his son Theo and all the staff, we welcome you to The Original Alps Restaurant.We know you’ll enjoy your stay!
Bob himself knows a thing or two about staying power, what it takes to keep customers happy, and to keep them coming back. That the Original Alps has so long been a part of the Irving Park neighborhood is testimony to that.The Alps first opened at 71st and Exchange. In the mid-1960s, the store moved to the northeast corner of Broadway and Irving Park Road.
Here, Bob started his Alps career as a cook soon after emigrating with his family from Thessaloniki, Greece. After about six months in the kitchen, Bob graduated to night manager, then in 1970, to partner in the business. In 1975 he became sole owner. He has never looked back.
Under Bob’s leadership, the Alps has earned a strong reputation for good food, great service, reasonable prices, and a warm and welcoming atmosphere.Theo continues the family tradition, working alongside his father in the business.
The Original Alps restaurant has always been a special place. It’s the people who make it that way, Bob says. He should know—as do his customers. From the neighborhood “regulars” to all the satisfied customers who bring their friends and family back for more, together we make The Original Alps what it is.
Our thanks for being a part of it!
