My main reason for going to Athenas is the Greek potatoes, but the rest of the food is amazing too. My last visit I had Molly as a waitress she was awesome attentive but not hovering over you. Chicken finger wrap was delicious I could barely finish it was was so big. My husband got the Texas toast sandwich he... More

The food was good, average decor,the servers where friendly,and the place is a clean. If you want to go out the prices are good. I would eat there again. I had breakfast with friends they all seem to think the place was good.

Not only do all I hear is continuous cussing from the cooks but our waitress Charmane I think her name was is very rude. Never coming here again. The other waitresses were flirting with the cooks through the window instead of of doing their jobs! What a clown show. My three yr olds ears had to be glued together so... More

Forgot I had been here years before, and having missed lunch ona busy work day, stopped in planning to treat myself to a decent meal.. WRONG! Got seated next to the dirty dish bin where wait staff was busily tossing in the dishes so it was LOUD. Quickly offered a menu and chose the day's special--a pork tenderloin with potatoes... More

A typical Greek family restaurant. Hugh menu with lots of daily specials. The place is clean and up to date. The staff was very friendly! All the positive reviews are correct. Try this one.

Athena's has a nice variety of food on their menu. They are always busy, which tells you they offer decent food at a fair price. Many breakfast items are offered any time of day. The souvlaki is very good . They also feature specials every day of the week.
