The Athenian serves the absolute best Greek food in Austin. The lunch line moves super quickly and the employees are all quick and efficient. And, extremely nice! The Greek chicken salad is to die for. Plus the gyros, tzatziki, hummus - heaven!

I was hope this was a sit down place. But it more like a fast food place. My order was wrong, but because it was lunch time and it was super busy. But, overall it was good food.

We discovered the restaurant when we were walking past. It was full of office workers enjoying lunch. You order cafeteria style and pay as you order. We tried gyros, chicken sandwich, lentil soup and a vegetarian plate. Everything was tasty and it was good value

I was recommended to try this restaurant from a local and it did not disappoint! I visited Greece last year and I have to say, this was the BEST Greek food I've had since I was in the country of Greece itself. The quality of...More

Most reviewers comment on their experiences having lunch here. We made reservations for dinner, telling them it was a birthday celebration. When we arrived at 7PM, there was exactly one other table occupied; that caused some disquiet -- how could they prepare excellent food, many...More
