In Athens, TX, the proud birthplace of both the hamburger and the black-eyed pea, there's a great way to put both of those things together at the table. And I've found that place! The Athens Cafe has these and more. I ordered the homeburger (a...More

Been going to the Athens Cafe for years. Mostly do breakfast but they are good any time of day. Mexican owned but the menu is American food forward. Consistently good food and good service, and the prices are reasonable. Another good old small town Cafe.

This place was once a local favorite but it's gone way downhill. The food is quite mediocre and the staff is somewhat surly. I've heard its still good at breakfast though but I've never tried it then.

Went there on a Friday night, but wasn't at all crowded. Restaurant interior could use a makeover. Was dated and rundown. Food was good. Service was maybe a 3 out of 5. Were seated quick as well as served fast. But had to wait a...More

Really good breakfast. Have gone there for breakfast for many years. Usually order from menu, but have eaten the buffet. Both are consistently outstanding. Good service too.

Yes, I eat here at least once a week, some weeks three or more times. Lunch is great, fast and the Sweet Ice Tea is always fresh. Daily lunch specials, like CFS, meatloaf, grilled pork chops all with vegetables and bread. The Fajitas (L7) is...More
