Wow, you sure could not ask for more than what you have for the cost. Not only was the staff pleasant, the food arrived quickly and was hot. Coffee arrived before your cup has a chance to empty. Now the food. What can I say, oh my, I thought there was enough there I would not have to by groceries... More

My friend and I didn't know where we were going to eat, so we were looking for a place as we drove down Harlem Ave. This restaurant looked fairly busy at 5:30 PM We were greeted and seated quickly. We ended up ordering 1/2 a fish fry. I love when I don't have to order a huge meal and waste... More

When it's good, it's REALLY good. But, sometimes I'll order the chicken or the steak souvlaki dinner "to go" on my way home from work after 8 p.m. The chicken is usually dry. The steak, every single time, is over-cooked & dry & tasteless, even though I order it medium RARE. They'll always forget something also, whether it's the salad... More

My husband and I ate breakfast here during a trip to Buffalo. We saw that the parking lot was full and decided to try it. We are so glad we did. We had great service and the portion sizes and prices were fantastic. He had an omelet with toast and loved it. I had the waffle with bacon and scrambled... More

These days, when I'm on the road for work, I usually take time to review some places that are close to where I'm staying. This time I was on my back to the airport and I had to stop for gas. So, as I was looking for a place I passed Athens Restaurant and the parking lot was PACKED (always... More

I feel they have the best chicken solvacki in town.... their home made dressing is excellent, it's not oily and seperated like most. Large portions and great prices make this a go to place anytime. Breakfast is excellent also.... they even have quick draw...

We have an annual jaunt up Cheektowaga for a visit with friends and this restaurant is the first stop. Nice and clean and attentive waitress. Had the Pot Roast with potatoes and veggies. Very good portions and meat was tasty. The order came with soup so I got the Avogolemono which is lemon chicken soup. Very good contrasting flavors. Prices... More

Great family restaurant. You get a lot for your money, and it's a nice, clean atmosphere for a "family-type" restaurant.
