Athens Family Restaurant was a nice little place with nice helpful staff. There were 3 items on their menu that the TFN had premiered therefore my husband and I each chose one. The... More

For authentic fare, you could hardly do better than this traditional restaurant. Save room for dessert if you can. This cozy diner is well worth the short drive from downtown Nashville.

Went here for lunch and had a delicious meal. Their chicken soup was so good, my daughter was calling for a second bowl within minutes. Gyro platter was great, Chicken Souvlaki sandwich was mouth-wateringly good! Definitely recommend this place!!

Actual family members run the place, and everyone is super nice. remarkably wide menu selection, and they also serve breakfast all day. Serving sizes range from large to gigantic, you will not leave hungry. Easy & plentiful on-site parking.

I can't speak to lunch or dinner - but the breakfast at this restaurant is wonderful. We were in from out of town and it was recommended by a local and boy can I see why. We got right in the first day (I say first day because on a three day trip we actually went back to this restaurant... More

Well the restaurant was established back in 2004, it serves a Greek menu. The inside is kinda basic nothing fancy although I think they could make it much better looking. Service is good and the staff are friendly and they know the food they are serving. I went there around noon and the main reason I went there was the... More

Doing a 'road trip' and in the process checking out as many Triple D restaurants as we could -- This was every bit as good - or BETTER than we anticipated! Lunch on Sunday was a bit crowded, but service was good and the food even better -- so many wonderful choices on the authentic Greek dishes - from appetizers... More

This is a Greek restaurant worth the drive. We love going here for dinner or just for the wonderful coffee and deserts. The caramel cheesecake is a little heaven on earth. This is truly authentic Greek cuisine and you will love the gyros and pita, but do indulge with the dipping appetizer to start. We have a favorite server (Mollie)... More

The meal was typical greek food, but of course, I had a greek salad so what do you expect? The dressing was more creamy that I am used to. Grilled chicken a little greasy. Overall, a good experience with attentive wait staff though we did have to flag down our waiter for a check.
