Quick lunch during a business meeting Quick service from limited menu (order by #, and be ready when they holler back to you) Plenty of seating, with some outside, but they do a big take out business

We had lunch here and enjoyed it very much. Even though the line was very long, it moved VERY fast, due to the fellow taking orders (and doing everything else.....). The prices were fair considering the large portions served. The spanakopita was quite soggy, and...More

We discovered the restaurant when we were walking past. It was full of office workers enjoying lunch. You order cafeteria style and pay as you order. We tried gyros, chicken sandwich, lentil soup and a vegetarian plate. Everything was tasty and it was good value

Located on Congress Street, the Athenian Bar & Grill is in a great location for anything you're doing downtown. Let them know if you have tickets to a show, and they'll get you out on time. It's less than a five minute walk to the...More

Most reviewers comment on their experiences having lunch here. We made reservations for dinner, telling them it was a birthday celebration. When we arrived at 7PM, there was exactly one other table occupied; that caused some disquiet -- how could they prepare excellent food, many...More

We don't get Greek food very often, but this is a great little place off the beaten path downtown Austin. The food is great and the prices are reasonable. There is a problem with the service, but it's not the waiter's fault. We got there...More

This place serves some of the best Greek food I've had in America (its rivals being in NYC). We ordered two delicious combination plates, the Greek sampler (spanakopita, lamb and chicken) and a vegetarian plate (more spanakopita, tzatziki, taramosalata, grilled vegetables, and Greek salad). Everything...More
