Looking for an affordable lunch before heading back from Nashville, we tried Athens. We ordered the Hummas appetizer (because we wanted to try the homemade Pita), the Gyro and the Bacon-wrapped Lamb Burger with fries. We were not disappointed with the Pita at all. It's...More

They offer a great value for their gyro platters and give you plenty of food, too. The service is good and the restaurant is clean. Judging by the crowd inside, I was sure the food was good and it was!

This is a great little white and blue house along franklin pike. The Greek food is excellent and very flavorful. The menu is huge for both breakfast and lunch. The Shawarma was seasoned perfectly with excellent yogurt sauce.

I have a Greek brother-in-law, so am familiar with Greek food. This place was fabulous! Found it under Diners and Dives and we all agreed it was the best of all the places we ate on this trip. Worth the trip for sure!

Stopped in for coffee and dessert. Our waitress recommended the Bouyatsa, and so glad she did, it was heavenly. Great service as well.

Our first experience here was on Halloween, because they are open later on the weekends. Now, we go every couple of months, due to the drive. I love their food. They have fantastic tzatziki dip, hummus, gyros, and fries. Their fries have crumbled cheese on...More

Found this little gem of a restaurant on our way through Brentwood. It was well worth the visit. The food was amazing and we will definitely be visiting again when we are in the area. This is one place you do not want to miss

We had high expectations for the calamari appetizer based on the recommendations of our server. It was pitiful. A large bowl arrived partially filled with romaine lettuce and a handful of calamari. I expected more for a $10 appetizer. Luckily our entrees were delicious and...More
