COTTONWOOD – Gus Kantartzis and his wife, Athina, opened Gus’s Mythos Pizza & Greek Specialties restaurant April 1 at 3900 E. Western Drive in Cottonwood.
In addition to a good selection of pizzas, including Greek style, the restaurant offers Greek gyros, Greek dinners and other Greek specialties. The Greek dinner menu offers moussaka, a Greek specialty with layers of eggplant, potatoes and ground beef, all topped off with béchamel sauce.
Lamb and chicken souvlaki cooked on skewers and a gyros meat plate with slices of beef and lamb round out the specialty dinners.
The Mythos Plate includes a combination of moussaka, gyro meat and spanakopita, all served with lemon-roasted potatoes, rice and Greek salad.
Gus’s also serves gourmet calzones as well as burgers, traditional sandwiches, salads and side orders.
Menu prices run from $6.95 to $16.95 for pizzas, from $5.25 to $6.99 for sandwiches and $12.95 for the Mythos Plate. All Greek dinners are $8.95 and gyros and calzones are $5.95.
This isn’t Gus’s first venture into the restaurant business.
“All my life I was up in Alaska,” he said. He ran a restaurant in the tourist town of Nikiski on the North Kenai Peninsula. He also ran a restaurant in Anchorage.
Athina does most of the cooking. “She makes all of the pastries and Greek specialties,” Gus said.
Hours are 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, and 1 to 8 p.m. on Sunday.
