Please stay away. Why there are any good reviews of this restaurant, I can only guess.
We went this evening for the first and last time. The food was old (hard or limp). It was ill-prepared. It is, indeed, cheap and plentiful. The restaurant has a 99.0% health rating (that's good). Most of it is not Greek but some form of American (pizza with feta) or American-loosely translated Greek something.
Look at the online menu and see for yourself.
Do not be fooled by the others who almost rave delights about this place. I cannot attest to their desserts because we didn't want to waste more of our money on it based on our main meal.
You should not waste your time and money here. Family-owned doesn't mean good. I learned that lesson tonight.
We've been dining at the Athens for years now, and each time the staff has been friendly, attentive, and the food has been excellent. Sure, you can go into Asheville and dine at the Grove Park Inn or a table at a restarurant at the Biltmore, but if you want a great selection of all kinds of meals at excellent prices, you can't beat the Athens. Go, enjoy, and sample what a dedicated staff and cooks can do for you without breaking the bank.
excellent restaurant. dined there w. my daughter while in asheville for a meeting. not much to look at on the outside, but don't judge a book by its cover. on the inside, the service is top notch and the food is very good. great place for kids..... lots of their favorites. and the price is great!!! highly recommend it!
