I chose this restaurant because of Trip Advisor reviews and was NOT disappointed. I have been to Greece, so I know real Greek food when I see it....and this is it. A very impressive menu, reasonable prices and super clean. My waitress was so sweet and the food came out quickly and as ordered. A Wonderful Greek Salad....wish I knew... More

I used to come here quite often with friends but sadly I only come now on occasion. Stopped here for dinner on my way home after being out of town for a few days. Food is still excellent as is the service. I had the chicken souvlaki with a side of lemon potatoes and a small salad. I think the... More

My most recent trip to Athena's was for my mother's birthday which was her first visit. I've been approximately 5 times. Each time the food is better than the last. Athena's never disappoints. The food is always impeccably seasoned, hot, fresh and simply amazingly good. I can't imagine a better Greek restaurant in the tri-state area. I'm a fan of... More

It's difficult to single out any one dish here. All of the entrees my wife and I have tried have been excellent. In a city with many excellent Greek restaurants, though, their gyro entrees stand out from all the rest. It's also the best place (perhaps the only) in town for pastitsio. The only caveat that I can think of... More

We have a pretty large population of people of Greek heritage in Winston-Salem, NC. Many of our local restaurants are owned by Greeks. We have annual Greek Festival in May to celebrate our neighbors of Greek Heritage. The restaurants offer a wide variety of cuisine -- seafood, breakfast, salads, sandwiches and a few Greek items on the menu. But, Athena's... More

I am half Greek and have had my share of authentic Greek food. The owners of this restaurant know exactly what they're doing! The food was perfectly prepared and they even offered Greek coffee! I wish they had a location in my home town.

Just stopped by again and got a Greek salad with chicken for take out. As always, they have the best Greek Salad in town. It must be the dressing. But, it is also very reasonable

Overall the restaurant is very clean - pleasant staff - tasty food -- does it remind me of being in Greece - not really. Something is missing with this restaurant, unfortunately I cannot place what "that" is - but something has been left out. Maybe it was the music or the lack of Greek Music but I do not remember....
