We have eaten here for 20 years and it's always delicious. The chicken, grape leaves and the potatoes are our favorites.

We had dinner at this restaurant the other night. The staff at the counter were very nice and gave good service. We found the rotisserie chicken to be a bit dry. It tasted good but maybe it was overcooked and dried out. We had to add sauce to moisten up the meat. If I go to this restaurant again, I... More

Had Athena's meal yesterday and it was outstanding! The chicken is the best I've ever had in Orlando and United States for that matter. It reminded me a lot of St-Hubert Rotisserie in Quebec. Great hummus and really good green beans. A must try while in the area.

My wife and I had a delicious lunch at Athena's Saturday. I had the gyro sandwich. It was the best gyro I have ever had. Gyros are a favorite of mine and I have tried them in many places. My wife had the spicy chicken feta pita, also delicious! Even the potato salad that came with her sandwich was out... More

Really sweet little Greek spot for some of the best roasted chicken served whole, half, shredded on pita with fresh made sides including nice Greek potatoes, veggies, and wonderful Greek and Mediterranean salad. Great place to stop after Saturday Farmers market.

ATHENA is a MOM & POP CHICKEN JOINT that specializes in Greek/Cypriot and Mediterranean food. The roasted chicken is always moist and flavorful. The roasted potatoes, red beans & rice and Zucchini Cypriana are always great side dishes. Their soups and salads are fresh and their dolmades (stuffed grape leaves) are always very good. This is a counter-service fast-casual restaurant... More

The food was good. I wasn't as impressed as many here were. The chicken platter had a raw pita. After I sat down, someone asked them to toast it. The chicken was moist and not dry at all. The roasted potatoes were a winner as well. I'll be back.

Athena is the neighborhood restaurant we never tired of. Franchises and chains will come along but it's the gem of an authentic experience. The decor is nothing fancy but they know their chicken for sure.

Athenas is absolutely one of Maitland's best restaurants. It is not fancy but comfortable with great food. Their chicken is the best and I can't begin to imagine how many chickens they must cook in a day. I personally get the roasted potatoes and mediteranean salad with the chicken. Their Gyros are also the best I have had and very... More
