This place is worth finding if you are in the Gaithersburg/Montgomery Village area. Like one of the other reviewers, my wife and I have been eating here for years and love it. The take-out options are fast, reasonably priced, and excellent. It is fun to eat at the restaurant just to watch the customers, many of whom are long time... More

I've been eating at this restaurant for years, and it dawned on me that I'd never written a review. Athens Grill is my second favorite restaurant in the Gaithersburg/Derwood area (Biscotti would be my favorite). Dimitri and his staff are always friendly, and the food is excellent. The portions are humungous, so you won't leave hungry. The Gyro Platter or... More

We went here for lunch because of the great reviews on trip advisor. We were not disappointed. My husband ordered the Zorba platter (a mixed meat kabob with vegetables) and I had a gyro platter. Both were served over rice with Greek salad. Each entire was less then &15 and was three times the amount of food one person could... More

This place is simply delicious. The gyro platter is fantastic! I have had a lot of the things on the menu and I have never been disappointed. The gyro platter is my favorite. The gyro meat is sooo good, the feta is always good and the pita is fantastic. Then of course the salad dressing is delicious as well. Great... More

Nothing fancy, simple furnishings in a small shopping center. This restaurant is family operated. As you enter you see a big grill with gyro meat cooking, chickens on the rotiseree and smell all kinds of wonderful food. Best pita bread ever. Have had salads, kabobs, platters, chicken, lamb, steak - each one better than the last. One suggestion-get the dressings... More

Dimitri's cooking is better than anything I've had in new York, Chicago, etc, even in Cyprus and Greece! The ambiance is bright and garish, so get it to go, or focus on the food! Whatever you have make sure you get a salad so you can try the excellent house dressing. My favorite is the grilled breast of chicken salad.... More

Located in a strip mall in Montgomery Village, this place is not much to look at. Clean but non descript. But the food is great and plenty of it. The gyro sandwich is huge and loaded with meat. Main dishes and sides are good. They have seafood specials that come with a greek salad and the Greek salad dressing is... More

For Mediterranean-style take-out food, this is a nice once-in-a-while alternative. My friend and I ordered some food to go. I got the Zorba platter and he got lamb kabob. You get a styrofoam container packed to the brim, mostly with salad and rice (or fries) and some meat and vegetables on a stick. The salad is mainly filler; nothing special.... More

The family has been successful here while many other restaurants have come and gone, for a reason - really good greek food, with specials and new entrees often enough to warrant frequent return visits. My wife and I can come here for lunch when we both have a day off, split a terrific salad, and take away some of the... More

Athens Grill is your typical casual restaurant in a strip center. Decor is sparse and the dining area can get crowded with the carryout folks... a bit like you're in a Subway restaurant. It's ok for a meal, but I'd recommend ordering ahead and taking your food somewhere more comfy. Food is cooked to order so expect to wait about... More
