Athena's has the best Chicken Shawarma Salad and Chicken Shawarma Pasta in Lafayette. A tremendous amount is provided with sides of hummus and pita bread. These mouth watering dishes are favorites of my family. We usually purchase take-out and enjoy at home just down the road.

Every time we are in town we stop and get the Greek platter for two and it is so much food and it is so delicious and just really on point. Can't say enough about this place. Don't let the gas station fool you.

I usually wouldn't recommend a restaurant inside a gas station, but this is good authentic Greek food. Very quick for lunch, I highly recommend it!

It is OK< But I wonder how come it can be both when they are not even close countries? Never mind Greek food is way better in France, not sure if they made it more French then Greek? Just way better, and way different and less boring that in here.
