Good gyro

We had trouble finding the restaurant. Even when we called, their directions were off. The restaurant is on the western side, facing I 25. It is between Barnes and Noble and Dick's Sporting Goods. It is not on the side with all the shops. The food was good. I had a gyro that was the proper... read more

There are typically two types of ethnic restaurants - authentic and cheap imitations. The operators of authentic restaurants cook from scratch using recipes from the old country. They take pride in their food and service, and are usually busy. Not so much Café Athens. I thought that, being located in an upscale "lifestyle" shopping plaza, the place would be good.... More

We both ordered Gyros with my choice spicy (jalapeños). Quantity, taste and freshness were excellent. Priced right and service was quick and attentive. We arrived a little after 11:00 and by noon the Cafe was nearly full with locals. Decor welcoming but nothing special. Would be a good place for families with kids.

So it was a super busy day and the restaurant was crowded. Our server was really busy so I tried not to knock him for that. The food took a ridiculously long time to come so he gave us a discount. The pizza was great and the gyro was delicious!

There are a lot of good options here. I prefer the sampler platter for a good variety. In terms of authentic Greek, I think this is like the Olive Garden for Greek food.

This is the first time I have been here and how I wish it was closer to Aurora. Loved it! All four of us had the lamb. It was so flavorful and tender! One friend had a colossal gyro and he couldn't even finish it! Huge. My husband and I had the gyro platters. It came with gyro meat, pitas,... More

I want to start off by saying the food and service was great. But as a Hispanic male, I sat close to the kitchen, and I could hear everything the kitchen staff was talking about in Spanish. I found it to be disrespectful and degrading. All they talked about the whole time was about the other employees. My wife and... More

Sorry, having been raised in Chicago I was hopeful. Sorry to say I was disappointed. Oh well, nothing ventured nothing gained. Suffice to say it did not come close to the Greek I have been accustomed to.

Average Greek food. I ordered the pasticcio platter and enjoyed it, but it was nothing special. Great service, clean restaurant.

We went to Cafe Athens with a friend after a long day of traveling. My husband and I both ordered coffee to keep us from succumbing to our fatigue as well as an order of fried mushrooms for the table (~$6). The mushrooms were piping hot and crisp when they came to our table. I ordered a marinated chicken with... More
