“I forget how good this place is.”
Reviewed August 2, 2014 via mobile

We had a great time with great food. For some reason this place falls off our radar but it is a really good place for dates. The specials don't rotate much but they're always a safe bet.

“EXCELLENT AUTHENTIC GREEK FOOD AND ATMOSPHERE.”
Reviewed July 26, 2014

I have visited Athena Greek Taverna several times during the past few years, but returned recently only a few days ago. The food id still excellent, the best Greek food in Winston Salem by far, the atmosphere is outstanding especially if there is live music, and the service is superb. The Greek owners are both gracious hosts and wonderful warm individuals. They will accommodate any of your needs and you will leave this restaurant feeling as if you just took a side trip to the Greek Isles. All the foods I have ever tried have been magnificent, and every now and again I will order the Greek Farmer's Salad (maybe this is not the real name for it) which is a large bowl with plenty of tomatoes and other fresh ingredients that will satisfy any appetite.

“Very Good Greek Food”
Reviewed June 12, 2014

If you enjoy Greek food, this is a nice place to try. The wait staff was very friendly, and the meal we had was very good as well. Once again, trip Adviser steered us to a great place. We went in the afternoon for a late lunch, so there weren't many people there, but the food was just as hot and fresh as if it was the middle of lunch time

“Excellent family/casual restaurant”
Reviewed May 31, 2014

Athena is a great family restaurant for lunch or dinner. It is not a fine dine establishment. If you are looking for good Greek food, including just a gyro or salad, this is the place. They give you very generous homemade portions at a very fair price. Their pasticcio & spanakopita are excellent. A family of four can walk in & leave feeling full & not like they made a mortgage payment. This is a family business & it shows how much they care. Tell them what you want & they will make it to your liking. You won't be disappointed.
