“Craving greek just not here.”
Reviewed June 15, 2012 via mobile

Lamb souvlaki seriously over cooked. Gyro was okay. Peach Melba Puff (house specialty) must have been a bad day. Overall the restaurant did not satisfy my quest to find Greek food in the DC area.

“Awesome!”
Reviewed January 11, 2012

Athens Grill is not the place you want if you're looking for ambiance; but if you want a great Greek salad topped with the biggest and best grilled shrimp, this is the place to be! Their grilled bread is wonderful, too! And don't forget to buy a bottle of their homemade dressing to take with you! And you will return for more! PS Just love the guys behind the counter! Wonderful!

“Excellent Greek food!”
Reviewed January 8, 2012

We almost always get the Picnic dinner; it's a bargain and we usually have enough left over for a second snack. The rotisserie chicken falls off the bone and it has a wonderful Greek flavor. The salad and Greek dressing is fresh and terrific. We have also had the gyros and they are wonderful also. Great flavors, and Dimitri is always a great host. Athens Grill is family-owned and operated, and the quality really shows through. Great food at great prices!

“Delicious Food”
Reviewed December 29, 2011

Athens is not much to look at with the small location in a tired shopping center, but the food is fabulous! I love the Gyro platter and DH loves the kebabs with rice. We've eaten there for about 9 years and love it! It's a bit pricey but you get a lot of food.

Reviewed March 20, 2010

TZatziki when offered as a side is in a large cup and is deliciously thick and worth the price. Lamb souvlaki is excellent with it's charcoal flavoring. Great roasted chicken. Huge " BIG FAT GYRO" lives up to the hype. Good fish dishes on the menu. Delicious chicken avogl soup with lemon flavor. To-die-for Baklava swimming in syrup is a real treat. Other dessert recipes are the owner's family recipes . Try it. You'll love it.
