This place is one if my favorites especially for a late lunch. A good glass of wine, some dolmates (stuffed grapeleaves), and maybe some chicken, or a gyro, or spanakopita! Love this here! Fantastic for dinner too and doesn't cost you a week's wages.

We like Mediterranean food and Cafe Athens won't disappoint you! We enjoyed feta queso appetizer (a unique dish in our experience...and very good)and gyros. It has sort of an upscale fast food but full service.

We visit here periodically when we're craving tzatziki and gyros. The food is consistently good and service tends to be friendly. They're the best gyros in northern Colorado, although I wouldn't compare the food to what you can find in the "big city" or anywhere in Europe. But they're definitely good enough to sate that craving for Greek food. To... More

We try to go here every time we're in Fort Collins. Everything's delicious, but the souvlaki/lamb gyros platter is my favorite since it has basically everything you'll need there. Also check out the flaming cheese and desserts.

Had dinner here with three other family members. We all ordered the gyro meal and they were authentic and delicious. We had an excellent server who brought extra sauce and checked back frequently. The decor is comfortable and family friendly. I highly recommend this restaurant.

I went to this restaurant on Thursday for lunch. I paid the bill with my credit card and left CASH for the tip. I just checked my bank account and saw they also took the liberty of adding more tip to the credit card! Won't be going back to this place and won't recommend it to others. Pure fraud!!! The...

We were driving home and looking for somewhere to eat when we saw that there was a Greek restaurant right off the highway. After eating burgers and such for our trip, we decided that gyros were the way to go. We stopped for late lunch. Service was very good. We were seated quickly, orders taken and served correctly. Waters refilled.... More

This was our second visit w/in the last year at Cafe Athens. The Gyro, a large Green salad with chicken, and a Gyro w salad were our choices today. The food here is well prepared, tasty, and some of the best Greek food we've had. Portions are large. Refills of water and soda are offered readily.

I tried this place because of the good reviews on TA. There were spot on. I had the gyros plate and was thoroughly satisfied. Good, attentive service, too. Highly recommended.
