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.

If you're in Fort Collins and you want good Greek food you come to Cafe Athens. They pretty much specialize in all types of gyros. Very good wait staff, been here for many years. I especially like being waited on by the girl with the short hair do. This family has been serving Greek food in Fort Collins for a... More

Located in a strip mall, expectations were low! We're we wrong! We love Greek food and this was very good. The prices are very modest. Service was friendly and prompt. Five of us ordered different entrees and we were all pleased carrying home ample leftovers.

Yes I've noticed it before but didn't go in. Its on the wrong side of town for me so it would have been a special trip. But we ended up with a gift card here for a good deed and we went. I was very surprised going through the front door - it wasn't counter service like I though it... More

We have tried many different restaurants on the front range looking for the best mousaka, and were pleasantly surprised by Cafe Athens. The food is as good as any of the 'high end' (expensive) Greek restaurants in Denver, with better portions and prices. The service is good, decor nice but a bit sterile compared to an old family run Greek... More

I used to work at Cafe Athens, and I never got tired of the food. I liked absolutely everything they served and constantly told my friends and family to come in and eat it! As well as the food being amazing, they treat their employees great, and I love to support companies that do that. I thoroughly enjoyed all of... More
