My husband and I went to Florence for our anniversary and Rancho Sonora Inn where we stayed recommended Mount Athos to us. We found it to be one of the nicest places to dine with great Greek and Italian food.

Second time for lunch and a little disappointed in the gyro platter. Brought a friend who drove 30 miles to try. Told him we should get the platter because the gyro sandwiches was lacking meat from last visit. Gyro meat was very small pieces the size of a quarter and not very much when they advertise it's a heaping pile,... More

This place is THE BEST! We come here several times a winter when we are hungry for great Greek food. Our usual favorites are the spanakopita, spicy gyros, and dolmadakia (stuffed grape leaves) for an appetizer. Full bar is great, and the service is attentive and supportive if you have questions. Be prepared for a bit of a wait, especially... More

We have eaten there many times. The Greek Cuisine is superb. The owners served us a shot of Ozo after our meal. ( Complimentary) If he is in the restaurant at the time you are dining. Great service and nice ambiance. Wide menu. Delicious!!!

What a delightful find in the desert! Hummus and pita bread were wonderful with a Greek salad. My husband had pork chops that were extra thick and tender with carrots! Yes, cooked carrots done to perfection in a brown sugar glaze! Did I mention the home baked bread and dipping oil. Wish we had room for baklava, it looked fabulous.

We were very pleased to find such a nice eating establushment in a small community. Busy place but it was Valentine's Day. They need a larger parking lot if they're going to be so popular.

Just a perfect Greek gyro with mixed lamb and beef with sour cream sauces, salad and fries! After our excursion around the Greek Orthodox monastery it just seemed like the right next event on our trip. Really enjoyed the waitress friendly and knowledgeable, humor and advice on what to order. We ordered extra gyro meat to take home and enjoy... More

On a road trip south of Phoenix, stopped at Florence and Mt Athos. Staff was very friendly and knowledgeable of menu. I ordered spicy gyro which was huge not to mention delicious. Ate at noon and restaurant was packed. Which is always a good sign. Will be back

"Warm and Friendly" staff and decore. Nice variety of Greek, Italian,and American dishes. My wife had a Spinach Salad and I enjoyed a deli open face Pastrami Sandwich with a side order of fries. One cold lemonade and water to drink. Total cost before tax was $24.15 and we had more then we could eat. An enjoyable meal.

Thank Waynerd14
