Love the fried chicken. It is always made fresh. The staff is amazing. There's a reason this place has been in business for 43 years. You must try the fried chicken.

Great food with an amazingly friendly staff. There is a reason this restaurant has been in business for add long as they have. We have always loved this place everything we have went and continue to go frequently.

From gyros to stuffed grape leaves, their Greek food is fabulous. The have a daily special like fried chicken like grandma used to make. They have a small soup and salad bar. I had corn chowder which was excellent, they also have a bean and cabbage soup that is always good. They have been in business forever, but it's mostly... More

I am a local and eat here very often, Tom has done a great job updating the décor and the staff as always is first rate! The Greek Salads are the best and a meal in itself. The Greek food is very good and is authentic. However the main thing is flame grilled steaks, pork chops and even frog legs.... More

My family likes to eat here at least once a month. I know a lot of people go to Athens for their fried chicken, but for me, it is the rib eye, with the Greek salad. I love that salad. The service is always great, and I love the gyros here as well. It's a nice place to go with... More

Small little restaurant in a strip mall but we were pleasantly surprised to find a multitude of dinner items to choose from, along with a great soup & salad bar. Wine available should you so desire. We were very pleased with our choice of restaurants after a long day on the road.

The food was good, not great. As mentioned in earlier posts, the decor looks like it hasn't been updated since the family started the restaurant in 1973! The whole place is very tired looking - like most of the staff [even though they where very friendly]. We had the Gyro and Chicken Gyro sandwich plus onion rings.

Lots of local following and dine here often. It's family owned and they take pride in providing lots of food for a good price. The chicken is good. Nice to see the salad bar update a bit with more items but it will do. They pack a lot of people in a small are so some times it is very... More

I am more often than not on call 24/7 and its very hard for me to cook any meal. As soon as I do I get called to work. Athens is a place I have gone to my whole life. I have read many of the reviews and agree somewhat. The place needs a good re-model in the worst way.... More
