No Rushing at To Steki: Pete Tzimpas Wants You to Take Your Time 

CHICAGO – When customers come into To Steki, the restaurant that Pete Tzimpas runs, they won’t get the feeling they have to eat and run to make room because he wants them to have a Greek sense of staying longer to share food and company with friends.

Steki, explained business manager Heidi Jorudd, is the Greek word for “hanging out.” That is what they want their customers to do, said Tzimpas – hang out with friends, eat Greek or American foods and enjoy the experience.

A friendship between them led to the partnership, said Shaw Local News of the restaurant in McHenry, Illinois, near Chicago. Tzimpas has been working in restaurants and kitchens since he was 13 and was a cook for 35 years at another that his family ran.


When a space became available, they said it seemed the right time to open their own. “My husband and (Tzimpas) have been friends since even before I met my husband – 30-plus years,” Jorudd said. So take your time.
