Every time we are in town this place is a must. My girls love the meat. It can be a bit of a wait if you come at lunch time but it's so worth the wait. If they weren't busy they wouldn't be good right??? The deserts are amazing too. Love this place

The food here is good overall and the ambiance is nice. They have a cordial staff but not overly friendly. I do wish they'd have lemongrass soup but so far they have not. Good desserts if you are into that.

The Greek food is wonderful....just know it is very busy during lunch time and you may want to call ahead.

We have been here many times before and today was an exception the service was slow the meat was dry. if this was our first visit would never come back as it is it will probably be a while before we return. On the upside, great ice tea.

Eaten there several hundred times since 1979 and most of the menu entrees, always very good (same cook, Mama Rentzios) with ingredients shipped over from Greece. Their Olympic Plate, a dinner entree that's a sampler of many favorites (Mousaka, Dolmades, Spanokopita, Potatoes, Beef, Pita, Salad, etc.) is a great way to go if you're really hungry (I've never left feeling...

It took 2 hours for 6 us to get simple gyros which looked like fast food when we finally got them. They were tasty but absolutely not worth 2 hours. Will never go again.

The gyros are always tasty but on this visit the fries were limp and barely warm, certainly not crisp. The service was slow as only one waitress for the lunch crowd.

The only Greek Restaurant downtown and we love it. Have to get there by ll:40 am to be guaranteed a table. A lot people love all their food and deserts. Not too classy, have to wait a while to be waited on and served because the lack of waitresses.

My wife and I were on our own for dinner. This is our first time in Billings. We decided on Greek food at the Athenian. The Renzios brothers started the restaurant in 1979. We ordered gyros and flalafel with feta cheese. We tried saganake--imported Kasseri cheese (goat) slightly fried and served flaming at the table. It was delicious! The gyros... More

If you love gyros you'll love the Athenian. They have many different kinds of gyros and greek salads. The price is right and the family owners are friendly and remember faces.
