You wouldn't expect to find delicious Mediterranean food in a smallish town in Louisiana, so I was pleasantly surprised! We went for lunch. The gyro plate was delicious and an excellent portion of salad, gyro meat, rice and hummus. The hummus was some of the best I've had. The rice was buttery and perfectly seasoned. Prices were reasonable, although dinner... More

Not my 1st trip to Athena, but 1st time at this new location. In my opinion, Athena has always served consistently great food combined with great customer service as I have yet to have any bad experiences. My hands down favorite is the meat moussaka which is a casserole-style dish featuring eggplant and potatoes. Great place for family, business lunch... More

Athena is a good place to go when looking for something that isn't fried or catfish in LA. It is a little expensive but it is worth it.

This is not my first time here. The Chicken Swarm is good. The service is far and the wait for your food can be long. This was true at all of my visits. During my last visit, our table had an issue and asked the manager for assistance. Someone was not happy with their food after one bite. The manager... More

I really love greek food. This place has great greek salad and the chicken kabob used to be my favorite dish there. But since they moved from North 18th street it is not the same at all. It is more like overcooked chicken strips similar to what you would pick up at a fast food restaurant. Please go back to... More

We finally were able to get to this restaurant for lunch! Every time we thought about stopping it was packed so thought if we waited till about 1:15 today it would be easier to get into the small parking area (there are also about 3 other little businesses on site). We ended up parking off to the side of the... More

The chicken shawarma is phenomenal. I haven't had better shawarma anywhere. The seasonings were perfectly balanced. I enjoyed the moussaka and hummus, as well. Our waitress was fantastic. Overall, I had a great time and a fantastic meal.

We had dinner here tonight. I had a shrimp salad and the shrimp were overcooked. My wife had a chicken and gyro salad and the gyro meat was fried crisp. We really didn't enjoy the salads. The humus was good but the pita would have been better toasted a bit. It seemed a bit expensive for what we got and... More
