ATHENA is a MOM & POP CHICKEN JOINT that specializes in Greek/Cypriot and Mediterranean food. The roasted chicken is always moist and flavorful. The roasted potatoes, red beans & rice and Zucchini Cypriana are always great side dishes. Their soups and salads are fresh and their dolmades (stuffed grape leaves) are always very good. This is a counter-service fast-casual restaurant... More

The food was good. I wasn't as impressed as many here were. The chicken platter had a raw pita. After I sat down, someone asked them to toast it. The chicken was moist and not dry at all. The roasted potatoes were a winner as well. I'll be back.

Athena is the neighborhood restaurant we never tired of. Franchises and chains will come along but it's the gem of an authentic experience. The decor is nothing fancy but they know their chicken for sure.

Athenas is absolutely one of Maitland's best restaurants. It is not fancy but comfortable with great food. Their chicken is the best and I can't begin to imagine how many chickens they must cook in a day. I personally get the roasted potatoes and mediteranean salad with the chicken. Their Gyros are also the best I have had and very... More

Hidden gem in Orlando. My family and I absolutely love to go there, our favorite is the chicken taboule wrap, but they have much more. Their chicken is delicious, I've been a client for about 15 years. The taboule and humus are delicious, they also have greek salad and greek dessert (baklava). It's a small place, so the kitchen/food smell... More

I love this place for the chicken and the patatos. It's a very small place but I've never had a bad meal.

When my kids were small we used to go here all the time. The gyro platter was my favorite and the roasted chicken was my second choice. As time has marched forward I now eat mostly the roast chicken and the Greek salad which are still outstanding. Beware the grilled pittas, they are addictive and before you know it you... More

I had a delicious turkey Mediterranean wrap that was full of taste and ingredients. The wrap itself was tasty and not the tough material at most other restaurants. My partner also had a nice chicken dish. This is a nice casual spot even though it is difficult to see from the road. Only a block from the Lake Lilly park,... More
