Excellent burger, various mexican dishes, good quality, expensive for fast food. Located on a pedestrian only street, fun to sit outside if weather permits.

Good option for their multiethnic menu, the price, the polite service. Sometimes is very crowded, so i suggest going there not at the rush restaurant hours, besides it is almost an all-day place. I recommend chicken tandoori, burgers, eggs at any way during Sunday brunch, falafel and burritos. The deserts are really tempting!

I've visited Mama Roux after reading about it online. Went there for lunch. A cozy little place on Aiolou pedestrian street. Food was good, very tasty and reasonably priced; tastes of Mediterranean cuisine. I tried the Beef burger and one of the salads. Staff was very friendly. The place is definitely worth a visit.

Went there with my boyfriend because the restaurant looked cool and cozy from the outside; we loved the art there. But that was just about it. The staff was awfully lazy and we felt totally forgotten all the time. We had to wait about 20-30mins to place our order, and we could barely hear what eachother and what the waiter... More

It was great to enjoy a very tasty and of excellent quality lunch at a cosy little place on Aiolou pedestrian street. Food and coffee are excellent; tastes of mediterranean cousine; the atmosphere is friendly and simple, nothing extravagant or fake! We tried the beef burger and chicken tortilla and they were absolutely delicious!!!!!

I found this place on a street food event they were having with southern food (which i found out when i got there) just to check it out. Hailing from NC, you're always a bit skeptical of anyone above or beyond the mason dixon saying they have authentic southern food. had the ribs and potato salad and gumbo....good lord. they... More

This was a pleasant change from Greek food, friendly & fast table service serving Mexican & American food. Very tasty burritos and burgers served on tables out in a roped of area of the street. They also have a good choice of drinks like Greenhalls gin, and Yellow Donkey beer on tap.

We visited Mama Roux's to take a break from the Greek tourist restaurants and we're not disappointed. I had shrimp tacos which came with nachos followed by a cookie for dessert. Both dishes were great! A special mention to the guacamole which was the best I've had at a restaurant. The staff were lovely and accommodating to non-Greek speakers.
