These days, when I'm on the road for work, I usually take time to review some places that are close to where I'm staying. This time I was on my back to the airport and I had to stop for gas. So, as I was looking for a place I passed Athens Restaurant and the parking lot was PACKED (always... More

I feel they have the best chicken solvacki in town.... their home made dressing is excellent, it's not oily and seperated like most. Large portions and great prices make this a go to place anytime. Breakfast is excellent also.... they even have quick draw...

We have an annual jaunt up Cheektowaga for a visit with friends and this restaurant is the first stop. Nice and clean and attentive waitress. Had the Pot Roast with potatoes and veggies. Very good portions and meat was tasty. The order came with soup so I got the Avogolemono which is lemon chicken soup. Very good contrasting flavors. Prices... More

Great family restaurant. You get a lot for your money, and it's a nice, clean atmosphere for a "family-type" restaurant.

This was the third time here and all three visits were pleasant. This time I had the goulash and my wife had the fish. They have Fish Fry daily. The goulash was delivered hot, layed out in a great presentation. The portion was generious and it seemed that it was freshly made as was the crisp custom salad. The fish... More

Great food anytime of the day! I have had breakfast, lunch and dinner at this restaurant. I have never had a bad meal. The food is always good, the staff is always friendly and the prices are affordable. I made a mistake by going to Ihop instead of this restaurant on my first day for breakfast. Sorry Athens for not... More

I went here for dinner with my boyfriend tonight looking to try something new. The restaurant has a cozy family diner feel. The prices here are very cheap. When it came to our food, our dishes were polar opposites. My boyfriend got the beef on weck sandwich which was phenomenal: tons of flavor and probably one of the best we've... More

From the Big Breakfast to something simple, this traditional Greek family restaurant does not disappoint. The service is usually very decent and the food is always fresh and hot. I could do without the frozen fish fry but everything else has been very good.

The waitress was professional and charming. It was about 9am on Friday morning. The place was virtually empty - maybe we missed the morning crowd, but then again, this is Buffalo. Our food came without much of a wait. One of us ordered an omelet and 2 of us ordered the kickin' chicken skillet. The skillet dish was so big,... More
