Excellent service at this bustling Tonawanda landmark. Breatfast was excellent and orders come out quickly and they are always busy. Don't let an almost full parking lot keep you away. All food made in restaurant.

Stopped in here for a late lunch with family. There were very few customers in the restaurant. The waitress finally finished her personal conversation with other customers and took our order. I ordered an omelette and home fries. The egg portion of my omelette was way under cooked. The home fries were most likely cooked earlier in the day and... More

We have had everything from breakfast to beef souvlaki dinners. Fish fries are great too. Be sure to plan ahead as Friday's get extremely busy for the fish. Staff is always nice and the owner is present and working all of the time.

I have been eating breakfast at Athenas for over 25 years. You will not leave hungry as there is always plenty on the plate. The service is quick. You can be in and out in 30 minutes if you are in a hurry. The waitresses are pleasant and attentive. On days when I want to stay a little longer to... More

We visit Athena's often for breakfast and/or lunch. Today I had the Polish Sausage and Eggs for breakfast which was very good. Their menu is extensive and they have specials for each day of the week. For lunch, my favorites are their Cream of Broccoli soup (served on Wednesdays and Saturdays) and the Open Chicken Souvlaki (with Greek Dressing).

If you think SUBWAY has a good sub - you're wrong - at least compared to this place. Friendly staff and always clean (can be a bit loud though) - this place has the best sub sandwiches in town! Always fresh rolls - fresh lettuce, tomato and onion and they don't skimp on the meat like most places do. And... More
