Working at restaurants is just a way of life for brothers Gus and Nick Drivas, owners of Highland Park restaurant Backyard Grill. 

“I’ve done every position in the [restaurant business],” Gus said. “I’ve been cleaning tables before I could see over them.”

Backyard Grill has been serving Highland Park for more than four years now. The brothers also own a restaurant in Northbrook, Grill House, which opened in 2017.
