I stopped buy here for a quick bite for lunch, as a long time resident I have never been to this gem. This is authentic homemade cuisine at its best. I had one of the best tomato soups in my life, wanted a small sandwich but opted for meatball...very good!! Looking at menu there are some outstanding dinners and specials.... More

My mother, daughter and I had lunch here on a limited time frame on a work day. We were in and out quickly as it was very quiet (only 2 other parties were present). We enjoyed our meals, especially the spanikopita. The restaurant itself felt a bit outdated, but the service was pretty good.

I was in Manchester and was looking to park when I came across the Athens. Being hungry I went in. It is not overly fancy but i'm there to eat food not be in a fancy place. Thier effort goes into the food and it shows. The owners greet you and talk with you and make yu feel at home.... More

Stopped in Manchester for the night and happened to notice Athens as we were walking from the hotel. Many different styles of lamb. Both the roasted and the grilled lamb were tasty although the grilled lamb was a bit tough. The vegetables were too much in quantity and just drenched in oil. A little too much in the way of...

My family goes here often when we are in the area. My grandparents have been bringing me here my entire life so now going back reminds me of them. They have great food and the owners and staff are incredibly nice. We have used the Athens for multiple large events dinning in and taking out. Portions are huge! The baked... More

My second try here (see earlier review). Took my Greek wife with me this time, and we were both very disappointed. The portions are huge and the prices are also high in comparison to what you get, but the main complaint is the taste is just not authentic (or at least good) Greek food. We would not have been able... More

The food here is really good, the portions are huge, and the prices are reasonable. This time around, I had the lemon chicken soup and the roasted lamb, and my friend had the roasted chicken. The decor is old-school and shabby elegant, but nice. Service is friendly but can be slow.

Our family got three large orders for takeout. We ordered grape leaves in lemon sauce, fish, potatoes, spaghetti, spinach pie and baklava. The spinach pie and the fish were good with good-sized portions. The spaghetti, well, it's Greek, not Italian. The potatoes were a little odd in some sort of tomato sauce, and a lot of it. The grape leaves... More
