Stopped by for lunch and it's one of the best Greek restaurants in the area. Food was authentic. Highly recommended.

While driving around the shopping plaza for a lunch option I found this gem. So glad i did. The food was fresh, full of flavor and more than enough for lunch. The staff was friendly and welcoming. The value was spot on. I had the full size chicken rice bowl. The chicken was juicy, tender and grilled to perfection. The... More

The mama Mia bowl is the best! I also love the NY Greek gyro! If you're a local or visited out of town, you must check them out!

This is a terrific Greek place. It's a small family place with a lot of smiles from the servers. Food is fresh & homemade. That's why I think some reviewers are critical of the prices. You can't do food from scratch & do it really cheap & stay open. Anyway best fresh tiziak sauce ever. We each had a NY... More

While visiting family in Concord I had a day to myself. I decided to get some take out from Gateway to Athens. The staff was super friendly, and my order was ready to go in a few minutes. The food was fresh and delicious. Highly recommend! And if you sit to eat that seem to have a great wine and... More

I've eaten Greek food in big cities - Chicago, NYC, and even Athens, Greece. The GYRO in this place is the best I have ever had. Every time I am in Concord, I get a few. The flavoring of the meat, plus pita, plus the sauce is just a mouthful of flavor. You will not be disappointed here. I love... More

We wanted something different than our usual take out, and gave Gateway to Athens a try. We had the gyros with the Greek rice. Delicious. The only criticism is that we would have loved more rice, which was flavorful and very tasty. Since we did not dine in, I cannot comment on the restaurant atmosphere.

We have been to this place with family. Food is average and over priced. This is the first time this happened to us. We ordered starters for lunch. The lady at counter charged us extra 3 dollars for splitting cost. Why would u charge a splitting cost to anyone. We told this to her,she removed the charge. But said we... More
