This is a great spot for a quick bite in Fort Collins. Though officially a "sit down" restaurant, the pricing and speed would have you believe otherwise. A gyro (at least 8 different kinds), fries and a drink can be had for $10, and often will be served within 10 minutes piping hot. My vegetarian friends swear by the falafel... More

Although a chain restaurant, this place does not disappoint. The gyros are wonderful, the pita bread so soft. The Greek salad is also very good. Well worth the price!

Everything here is delicious and the portions are generous. Just go and enjoy yourself. Get the Hummus sampler for an appetizer. If you like a little spice, get the bbq gyro. I've eaten it at both locations at least a dozen times over the last couple of years and never get tired of it.

My man insisted that I try this place and I reluctantly agreed. I ended up being quite pleased with the restaurant. We had dolmathes as an appetizer. They were as expected, nothing extraordinary. I thought the avegolemono soup sounded great, so initially that is what I ordered. I have to give the soup a giant thumbs down. It didn't seem... More

Cafe Athens is one of our main dining destinations, being that we live close by. The food is consistently delicious and the service is always good! I tend to always get a gyro or a gyro platter, which never disappoints. Thanks for always providing a great experience. We will see you again very soon!

For a very casual taste of Greece and the Middle East, no better or more delicious spot could be found. The special "fries" received the "best of" last year and the gyro and falafel meals are the best.

We ate there as a family. The Greek gyros were great.. we ordered traditional. The gyro only is about $7, the meal that comes with side and soda is $10. Gyro comes with either lamb or chicken (lamb is delicious), lettuce, tomatoes, pita bread. The fries are coated and crunchy. Sodas have free refills. If you order the colossal gyro,... More

We really enjoyed the food at a recent Friday dinner at Cafe Athens: my wife thought the falafels were some of the best she had ever had and my mousaka plate was tasty and generous, with a little bonus of gyro meat on the side. And I enjoyed a tall frosty local beer to wash it all down. The service... More
