We were welcomes as soon as we opened the door. I was greeted by the owners Son. He was fun and loved his Mama and her cooking. The food was outstanding. Very small place but worth the visit.

If you are riding the Spanish Moss Trail and you are looking for a place to break for lunch, you would be hard pressed to find a better meal.

I've had lunch here many, many times. Mother & son operation. The son runs the front of the house and mom cooks everything. One of the most welcoming places you will ever visit. The food is fantastic and the service is as friendly as it gets. Eat here & enjoy!

Their gyro sandwich and platter are the gold standard against which we judge others. And Mama Maria makes moussaka to die for. Check out the... More

We heard a lot about this place and we were not disappointed. The Greek salad with chicken kabobs was very tender and had great flavor. The salad was served with the warm homemade pita bread...very tasty. The veggie gyro was delicious. I can't wait to go back!

We had lunch at the Athenian Gardens and it was a very nice experience. The food was beyond just Greek lunch food. Mom was literally in the kitchen. The Fallafel was fresh, crisp and flavorful.
