"Syrian" as menu item at a Massachusetts pizza place? (Specifically: My Brother's Place, Andover, Mass)?

In an old (1992) issue of the Phillips Andover newspaper, I recently noticed an ad for local pizza joint My Brother's Place. It advertised "Pizza Subs Syrians Pasta." What, in that context, is/was a "Syrian"? I went to college in Massachusetts and thought I knew the lingo (grinders!), but I never saw this usage before.
