Athens Family Restaurant

Last night we finally tried Athens Family Restaurant, a diner with an extensive Greek menu. We've heard great things about this place, it was even featured on Diner. Drive-Ins, and Dives, so we knew it had to be good... and it was! The building looks and feels like a diner. But the menu will surprise you. They serve breakfast all day, but we decided to stay on the dinner side.

My boyfriend chose a Lamb Burger with Bacon, a perfect fusion of American classic diner with a Greek twist. The fries even came with crumbled feta on top. The burger was huge and delicious. It had that great lamb taste mixed with the familiar flavor of bacon. I wanted to try one of the Greek entrees so I ordered the Kotopita. I had never before tried this dish, but hey, it comes wrapped in phyllo. How can you go wrong? Inside the delicious, buttery phyllo wrapper were pieces of chicken, cheese, and vegetables. Yum! It was served with a mixture of vegetables in a tomato sauce, which was slightly spicy and had a great flavor. In addition it comes with Dina's Creamy Potatoes, pieces of potatoes cooked in a creamy cheesy sauce.

Athens is a great place that has a huge and diverse menu. There will be something on the menu for everyone to enjoy, whether they prefer traditional diner classics or are feeling more adventurous and want to try something Greek.
