8 PM, Tuesday, party of 7. We were the only ones in the dining area. Our orders were quickly prepared despite a constant stream of "to go" and "call in" orders. I enjoyed the Meat Moussaka (layers of potato, eggplant, & ground beef topped w/ Athena's special sauce) and a side of Tabouli Salad (tomatoes, finely chopped parsley, bulgur, onion,... More

Every time we are in town we stop and get the Greek platter for two and it is so much food and it is so delicious and just really on point. Can't say enough about this place. Don't let the gas station fool you.

Ordered chicken shawarma and feta salad to go! Fantastic! Came with a generous amount of humus and warm pita! One of the best I've had dishes I've had, and am greatly surprised! Will recommend this and ear here often!

I usually wouldn't recommend a restaurant inside a gas station, but this is good authentic Greek food. Very quick for lunch, I highly recommend it!

It is OK< But I wonder how come it can be both when they are not even close countries? Never mind Greek food is way better in France, not sure if they made it more French then Greek? Just way better, and way different and less boring that in here.

This was only my second time eating this type of cuisine and it was very good. The service was really good as well. Enjoyed our dinner very much! We will definitely go back.

Since there inside a filling station it's to get your food and go home as they just have a couple of pick net tables to sit at if you eat there but the food is great and they have another location in the Ambassador Row Shopping Center down from Sally Beauty Supplies and other places and the food is as...

The Greek and Lebanese food was pretty good, but having spent quite a bit of time in the Middle East I was disappointed with the falafel and the vine leaves. My favourite part was the grocery area, which has a lot of specialty items that are just like in a Middle Eastern corner store.
