Well the restaurant was established back in 2004, it serves a Greek menu. The inside is kinda basic nothing fancy although I think they could make it much better looking. Service is good and the staff are friendly and they know the food they are serving. I went there around noon and the main reason I went there was the... More

Doing a 'road trip' and in the process checking out as many Triple D restaurants as we could -- This was every bit as good - or BETTER than we anticipated! Lunch on Sunday was a bit crowded, but service was good and the food even better -- so many wonderful choices on the authentic Greek dishes - from appetizers... More

This is a Greek restaurant worth the drive. We love going here for dinner or just for the wonderful coffee and deserts. The caramel cheesecake is a little heaven on earth. This is truly authentic Greek cuisine and you will love the gyros and pita, but do indulge with the dipping appetizer to start. We have a favorite server (Mollie)... More

The meal was typical greek food, but of course, I had a greek salad so what do you expect? The dressing was more creamy that I am used to. Grilled chicken a little greasy. Overall, a good experience with attentive wait staff though we did have to flag down our waiter for a check.

The food here and in other Athen's restaurants is usually good. Service is prompt and accommodating. The sole complaint I have is with the overpowering chemical air freshener that wafts out from the bathrooms. The chemical smell is so strong that it permeates the dining room. I don't understand why they just don't clean well with a non toxic cleaner.... More

Amazing food from start to finish. Desert was included for 2$. Had Kotopita- Greek chicken pot pie- home run. My daughter likes in N and thus is her top choice. Opens at 630a. Closes at 10, except open nonstop from Fri am till Sunday pm.

The exterior is "uneventful" but the food is excellent. The entire place (restrooms included) was very clean and fresh. The staff was friendly and efficient. If you enjoy a little spice, then try one of their pasta dishes with tomatoes, garlic, onion, bacon and parmesan cheese. No extra meat needed. Their breakfast menu is also amazing, especially the raisin-walnut pancakes.... More

Went there for dinner tonight. Last chance to eat out for at least a month due to hospital stay. Their lamb burger is heavenly and the Lamb of the Day was top notch, very rich and tender. Worth every cent. The restaurant was very clean and simple. The staff is very friendly and made us feel welcome and at home.... More

Don't be deceived by the ordinary looks. The food is excellent and the service is very good. I had koto pita, which was superb. My wife and daughter had dishes with the red sauce which was also good, but I preferred my dish. The salad was pretty good, but the house soup, chicken and rice was awesome. Our server was... More
