Their Greek salads are generous portions with beets,olives, tomatoes, feta cheese, lettuce and their wonderful homemade dressing! (Not a traditional Greek salad that doesn't contain lettuce). Their gyros have tender moist pieces of meat and their pita bread is the best!!! Whenever I'm in town, I make my way there. It's a casual simple restaurant that's quite busy during the... More

An okay joint tucked away in a corner of the mall. Service good. Feels like any other diner. But the taste didn't quite cut it. Gyros and kabobs can taste much better!

A bit disappointing. Service is good. But the food is sub par for an authentic Greek. Price too high for quality and quantity. Bad mistake.

I adore this place! The food is excellent -- homemade pita, sauces and mouthwatering Souvlaki -- and the prices can't be beat. Great for a quick lunch or take-away.

I wanted to find a good Greek restaurant close to my hotel. The clerk behind the desk recommended three different choices and Athens Souvlaki was the closest. I'm glad. The gyro may have been the best I've had Stateside (I had a couple on the island of Crete once...amazing). These guys bake their pita bread daily and, trust me, it... More

My first visit to this new location in the Penobscot Building--and definitely not my last. A bright and airy space; friendly, attentive staff; and large portions. The chicken pita sandwich was filled with seasoned chicken and a tasty yogurt sauce. The pita was extraordinary--a combination of fluffy and chewy. The pita bread alone is worth the trip! Too many fries... More

After reading the reviews here on Tripadvisor, a friend and I decided to go on a weeknight so we could avoid the thundering herd of folks who would be waiting for seats at what one reviewer called "the best Greek restaurant in the state." We were shocked to find that we were the third table in the entire restaurant. Literally,... More

We were a party of 7 and they took such good care of all of us. The Greek Platter, gyro, Greek salad were all delicious. The real home run is their bread. You could make a meal on it and the dipping sauce. Portions are very generous, so go hungry or split a dinner. The service is great and super... More
