I have eaten there perhaps 50-100 times over the last few years. I went today with my son who is autistic. My son was just touching the window waiting for food. The owner came outside and yelled at my son. He asked my wife what was his problem. She told him that he was acting off because he has autism.... More

Had a quick business lunch here. Served Fast Food style, pick up the food in the front then find a table. Very busy at lunch time, but everything moved fast. The lamb Gyro was good.

Strolling down tree-lined Congress Street in Austin, Texas at lunchtime, my wife and I found the perfect place to have a healthy snack--the Athena Restaurant.

I had the chicken and gyros plate on a bed of rice and lettuce. Absolutely excellent! the restaurant was nicely decorated and with a very good waiter. My wife's meal she said was good, however the potatoes roasted in a red sauce were excellent. Nicely decorated and right downtown.

My husband and I ate here before a show at The Paramount. We happen to be vegetarian, and there were plenty of choices for us. The food was very good and our waiter was wonderful. We ordered 2 appetizers and 1 entree and had more food than we needed. We'd both like to go back soon and have a couple... More

This was an unexpected diversion. The food was wonderful, and service great. Everything was freshly made. The Trio kabobs were nicely grilled and the meat and veggies moist and tender.

Never been for dinner but it is great at lunch. The combo plates, salads and gyros are all delicious. One of the best lunches in downtown Austin.

Nice staff and amazing food. Portions are huge. I ordered the chicken salad I spoke a little Spanish and mi amigos have me light crema. So if you like tziziki but don't want the extra booty follow me and go small on the sauce
