My friend and I are no strangers to Greek restaurants. Being from the Chicago area with their multiple excellent Greek restaurants on Halsted St have set the bar pretty high . Also having gone to Greece with stops in Athens and various Greek islands doesn't hurt either. Which brings me to our stop at Athens on Fourth in Tucson. I... More

Visited when it first opened years ago and was not pleased but while at 4th Avenue Street Fair this weekend we thought we'd give it another try. Service was ok, but the Greek salad was skimpy as was the dressing and feta cheese, tomatoes were hard--as in still almost green, dressing was tasteless. No bread or pita was served with... More

Had gyros and a village salad with chicken for lunch. Incredibly quick service, with fresh-tasting and delicious food.

Ate here while shopping along 4th ave. Glad we did. The food was surprisingly good. I tried the lamb shank and it was as good as any I have had. Service friendly and fast. Nice atmosphere too.

We have tried this restaurant about 4-5 times since moving to the area earlier this summer. By far it is the best we have found in Tucson. We are currently touring all Greek spots trying the find the best, but Athens on 4th will be hard to beat. Not always parking in the adjacent lot (only holds about 10 cars).... More

I have been there for both, and most recently on a Saturday night for dinner. The place was pretty much empty inside (about 6:30 pm). We sat outside, alone for the longest time until other guests arrived. No outdoor lights and the street lights are too far to be of any help. So type of lamp would have been nice.... More

Four of us went for dinner and we all enjoyed our meals very much. I had the Pastitsio (think Greek lasagna) and thought it very authentic. My husband had pork cooked on skewers with wonderful potatoes. One friend had Moussaka and the other Smoked Octopus. For dessert we shared a Baklava (the best I've had). Everything tasted authentically Greek at... More

This is a very clean, welcoming restaurant. It would be nice if they evened out their sidewalk in the front of the bulidng. The little waitress was delightful and busy. We brought a friend for her birthday, she chose Athens and we all enjoyed the service, the food was good and the birthday gal got a free slice of delicious... More
