A History of the Log Cabin Steakhouse in Galena

As they say, "We Serve Opaaaaa!"

Foti (Frank) Rigopoulas was born in Greece and immigrated to America at age 17, entering at Ellis Island after a three-week boat ride in 1954.

He first got a job working as a dishwasher in his uncle's restaurant in Chicago where he eventually earned enough money to send to Greece and have the rest of his family come over as well.

He opened the Sea Breeze Restaurant in Dekalb, Illinois, (I don't remember it) and purchased the Log Cabin in 1975.

A Real American Success Story. --RoadDog
