I love this place so much. After moving out of the state I tried so hard to find a place like Athena's. Every time I'm in town I make sure to make a visit. The food is always delicious. There is a lot to choose from on the menu! It gets pretty busy during breakfast and dinner, but I always... More

We love eating here but today was just plain awful!! Our waitress was not interested in working today and we were treated like scum when we said we didn't want our over burnt potato skins...she didn't even ask why we didn't want them and my husband was mid sentence apologizing for sending them back and she stormed away with them!...

Very friendly place with great food, Greek as well as American. Always busy but never a long wait for a table. I have been here for breakfast and dinner and everything is delicious.

There are many similar Greek family restaurants in the Buffalo area. Most are pretty good at what they do. Large varied menu, breakfast, dinner , and lunch available at most anytime. Athena's is near the top of that list. Located near a bunch of fast food restaurants on Youngs Road in Tonawanda, it is worth your while to drive past... More

I live in Florida now but when I go home for a visit I love to stop by Athena's for Baked Ham Dinner. You can't get a ham dinner very easily these days. Plus its delicious and a great price including a salad and two sides. The staff is happy and attentive.

Have never been dissatisfied by the breakfast. The food comes fast and hot, potatoes have soft centers and some crispy sides, eggs always come the way I order them. Coffee cup never empties!

You are always seated quickly or name put on a list, the menu is varied and extensive, but best of all, the quality and volume of food is WONDERFUL! If you go there on your lunch hour, you are in & out in ample time to sit and chat, you don't have to gulp your food down. The weekly specials... More

Super little family diner in Tonawanda, it was packed for lunch on a Tuesday. All of the typical diner fare with a Greek flare. The service was great - and like a typical diner you pay on the way out, don't wait for the server to take your credit card up to the cashier. Nice place to eat, this place... More

Portion size and quality are excellent. Servers are all very nice. Fridays nights there is a line , so be patient, it is worth the wait.

I have eaten here many times and everything has been very good from breakfast to lunch to dinner. Love to go there for a nice breakfast in the morning (or any time of day). The dinners are excellent and so reasonably priced. Plus, you get soup or salad with the dinners. The soups are all very good although a bit... More
