Family restaurant with the fresh tasty food at a great price. Helen, one of the owners, has incredible energy and delivers super service. Mom enjoyed her GIANT gyro. My combo souviaki and gyro dinner was delicious and the leftovers made a nice lunch. Will definitely be back.

Food is awesome! Have to make sure I get here every time I come down here! Everything I've had has been great but the stuffed grape leaves are the BEST! Can't spell what they are really called lol.

Their gyro is everything! We ordered an appetizer of flaming cheese, called Saganaki, which is lit on fire at your table. This was really fun and impressed my daughter. It was delicious! Also tried and enjoyed a Greek beer! This was my first time to the New Smyrna area, but not my first time having a gyro. I ordered a gyro with feta. This was the best gyro I've ever had. I will leave the area and think about it until I can come back and have it again! I felt a little bit like I was in my family's kitchen and that was a really nice, warm feeling. Good people making good, authentic food.

They are open again and again the best GYRO in the state. Fresh carved meat, fresh tomato, fresh onion and the best Gyro sauce. All the food is Great Greek. Go for one Gyro and you will return for more. It is the BEST!!

This is by far the best greek salad around. It's locally owned and the owner is delightful. Portions are very generous and the food is spectacular.

The best Greek food you can get. They make the best spinach pies along with their Gyros! Plus they have the best baklava you can get. The husband and wife do all the cooking and it's awesome! Go Greek once a week!

This is a favorite, and not just because it's close to home. Delicious Greek food. Helen and Gus, the owners, are great. Don't miss the saganaki (flaming cheese) done by Helen at the table. Wonderful fresh bread baked by Helen with the meal (take home any left over for marvelous toast). Recommend everything, especially gyro, dolmades (stuffed grape leaves with beautiful lemon sauce), pastichio (Greek version of lasagna), kalamarakia (squid that's much more tender than usual), lamb shank (special Friday and Saturday, I think), and I could go on. Take home Helen's wedding cookies or baklava. Open only Wednesday thru Saturday and only until 8:00.

Nice to have a local Greek restaurant in town. Very nice people and my gyro was excellent.

Greatest Greek joint in the entire central Florida area. Only one that has real souvlaki. I live an hour away and make the drive a couple times a month. Food is fantastic and the prices are insanely low. You can get souvlaki on pita for cheaper than you can get a Big mac meal. Do yourself a favor and check this place out. Support your locally owned restaurants and put an end to all this "chain" garbage

We are very disappointed in our service today. We are regular customers and order from Athens at least one time a week. Today, we ordered as always and we got charged for something that we have never been charged before. Also our lunch special they forgot the fries. To top it off our Gyros we soggy. When we called to tell them about everything the lady that answered the phone was very rude about it and told me I was not a nice person. They wouldn't refund us and never offered to remake the order. Very disappointed in their customer service!!! Will not be back!!

We have been going to Athens Restaurant for several years and love it. The bread is wonderful and homemade! Our favorite meal is the souvlaki sandwich with a side salad. Always fresh & delicious. The owners are very friendly. We've also eaten the Greek Chow Mein, Moussaka, Gyro sandwiches and much more. We do Green once a week here. P.S. The chicken soup is great!

Most tender lamb shank I have ever had; it just falls off the bone. I also had the lamb burger, and it beats any beef patty I've tasted by a long shot.

Review №48

The food is truly authentic! No Greek Sysco here! Service is great, but only one server for the place and she's also hostess and carryout server. Food is very economically priced and tasty. The Greek soup is not egg lemon like you'd expect, but it is good. The dolmades were great. So was the saganaki! We will come back!
