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

some of us just stopped here to talk baseball and we went waaaaay into extra innings, not good for a restaurant's bottom line... we even acknowledged this and the waitress shrugged it off, said we were fine... tipped her plenty... had chicken soup, three-cheese omelet, over-easies and enough coffee to prompt a rain delay and still they tolerated us... nice...

On Easter Sunday my husband and three children and I went to this restaurant to eat breakfast. While we were sitting at our table, a Blonde-Haired waitress named Terry came over from another section of the restaurant and insulted my family and I over a personal issue she was having! When I complained to the owner his response to me... More
