My wife and I have been eating at Atilla's since 1983, 33 years. Both my son and daughter have now eaten there. As my daughter said yesterday, "It always delivers." What makes this restaurant special is the tasty food for both meat and vegetable eaters; lovely decor; friendly service; and reasonable prices.

Fast, delicious, yummy food, and friendly atmosphere at this restaurant. I've been to the place a lot with friends, family and by myself, and have tried all dishes. They are all great. Their cooks deserve a pat in the back every day.

As we were checking out the area by our hotel, a lady came up to us and asked if we needed any help. I asked for recommendations on restaurants, and this was one she enjoyed, so we tried them out. We went in an off-time after walking around the area, and pretty much had the restaurant to ourselves. Before we... More

Great Turkish restaurant with wonderful food and great service. New favorite place! Iskender Kebab on weekends and a fantastic baba ghannush with warm fresh bread.

As other reviewers note, Atilla's has a pretty loyal following because of the takeout. if you're looking for atmosphere, this might not be the place for you. I've gone countless times and the food never misses. It's fresh, tasty food that's made by a local business that has been in Columbia Pike for ages. My go-to has always been the... More

While the food is maybe average, the place itself is run down and dirty beyond excuse. Got to wonder when the last time they were properly inspected by the health department. Attached are a few not so flattering pictures.

Try the kisir if you like spicy food. Good vegetable kabobs too. I agree that it's best for takeout but the restaurant has been updated in the past year or so .

Atilla is a sit down restaurant, grocery store, and a carry out. This review is for the carry out which I've been using for more than a decade. I used to live a few blocks down the road so I used to eat here on a regular basis but now that I live further I'm still a regular, but go... More

I've never eaten at the restaurant (always looks a little grim and depressing), but the take out has never let me down. They just make great food. My favorite is chicken kabob and hummus. Fantastic hummus, slight kick to it, maybe best I've ever had. They know what they are doing on the grill. I come here several times a... More

Atilla's is great! We were in the Penrose neighborhood and looking for an interesting places to have dinner. Atilla's met our requirements and we were not disappointed. Great options on the menu, all seemed delicious, and we were not disappointed with our selections. The restaurant itself is minimalistic .... Nothing fancy ... No white table clothes ... But that does... More
