OUR STORY

The word "Ksenos" means both stranger and guest, a synonym that occurs only in the Greek language. Throughout their history, the Greeks reguarded a stranger as a guest and treated them like royalty. At Williams Restaurant this is no exception.

 

Williams is a family operated restaurant started in 1983. It was founded by William Vasiliadis, passed down to his son Chris Vasiliadis, and now into three generations of family with the addition of grandson Nick Vasiliadis. When dining at Williams we want all our guests to feel welcomed. With the combination of our friendly service and comfort food assembled from fresh ingredients, we want people to feel like they are eating at the comfort of their homes. Just as if they are a part of our own Big Fat Greek Family!
