THEY HAVE THE GREEK ON! If you have been looking for a great GREEK RESTAURANT Athena Gyro does not disappoint. Everything has so so much flavor. Itโ€™ll keep you coming back for more.. The Gyro Plates are very generous and the pita perfection. Try the chicken Gyro! Itโ€™s delicious if you want to avoid the beef and lamb combo. Highly recommended!

I'm vegetarian and their vegetable sandwich with soy curls was fantastic. My husband's vegetarian plate was huge and the food was wonderful. The staff were very attentive. We'll be back time we are in town.

Stopped in for supper on Friday evening. We ordered a falafel sandwich, a salmon sandwich, baklava, an American/Greek salad to go. The service was attentive, quick and pleasant. The food DELICIOUS. Likely the best salmon I have ever eaten away from home. My only regret, we shared a single baklava serving, shouldโ€™ve each ordered one. Yum! If we lived in the area, Athena Gyro would be a regular haunt for us. We live in DE ๐Ÿ˜†
