We tried this place during the week for a somewhat late dinner and it wasn't bad nor was it spectacular. Just very much average. Atmosphere - I don't know if it just happened to be the night we went but it seemed like the crowd here is much older. The tables were mostly seniors dining there... read more

Athenas offers a variety of green dishes and other fare. Their Greek chicken salad is one of their best menu items. I normally can only eat half if it because the portion are so large, The chick is roasted and always tastes great. The salad come with tomatoes, peppers onions pepperocini and feta cheese all of which are fresh. Also... More

I saw all of the good reviews for Athena, but I was very disappointed the first visit. It was a saturday for dinner. We ordered, and I think our food was out in 5 minutes. What could be wrong with that? Obviously the food was all reheated. I don't remember it being all that tasty either. We tried again on... More

Breakfast is our favorite meal to eat out, and we do so several times a week. Athena is a bit of a drive, but we had errands nearby - and a BOGO coupon from the Entertainment Book. For awhile, they weren't open for breakfast, but have changed their hours back - probably customer demand. We have had lunch & dinner... More

Once again, I dined with clients at Athena and as usual, the food was delicious and the right temperature. Service was given by a personable waitress. The restaurant advertised their roasted chicken and as well they should because the chicken is moist and delicious. Their greek specialties are always wonderful. I always have to take home a few pieces of... More

Had a gyro, which was good. Potato salad was so-so. Sat at bar next to someone's half eaten sandwich, which was still there when I left. Employees could dress better for work; one guy was walking around wearing a white "wife beater" t-shirt. Two other ladies dressed only marginally better. It is a diner type restaurant, so I adjusted my... More

I enjoy taking customers here for lunch. Small mom and pop atmosphere with good food and prices. Don't expect great service, but chicken souvlaki makes up for it, especially for the price.

It is in a practically abandoned strip center so there is plenty of parking. The prices are fair. The service was adequate. The food went like this. I ordered, soup (lemon, traditional) Wonderful, needed pepper but otherwise flawless. Greek salad: Crisp greens, onions, green peppers, 1 small wedge of tomato, 4 Greek olives that were shriveled and a lump of... More

We used to frequent Athena's once a week, if not more, for breakfast and lunch. We had a few bad visits a few months ago, so we stopped going until a recent Saturday. They had new menus and new prices. I ordered a greek omelet. I asked for french fries instead of their home fries, because more often than not,... More

One of the best greek restaurants in the area. The service is impeccable- the staff is so attentive and friendly. Since we are regulars, they know us and our "usual" orders- even if we haven't been there in a while. They get pretty busy at lunchtime (noon-1pm) so some days tables are hard to find but if you go a... More
