We stumbled upon this place while walking the downtown before heading to the airport for our flight home. Stopped for lunch -- and couldn't have been happier. The long line moved quickly. And the food was great. Hot, warm, and delicious. We want to visit...More

The Athenian serves the absolute best Greek food in Austin. The lunch line moves super quickly and the employees are all quick and efficient. And, extremely nice! The Greek chicken salad is to die for. Plus the gyros, tzatziki, hummus - heaven!

I was hope this was a sit down place. But it more like a fast food place. My order was wrong, but because it was lunch time and it was super busy. But, overall it was good food.

We discovered the restaurant when we were walking past. It was full of office workers enjoying lunch. You order cafeteria style and pay as you order. We tried gyros, chicken sandwich, lentil soup and a vegetarian plate. Everything was tasty and it was good value

I was recommended to try this restaurant from a local and it did not disappoint! I visited Greece last year and I have to say, this was the BEST Greek food I've had since I was in the country of Greece itself. The quality of...More
