We got 2 pizzas and 12 barbecue wings. The food was good and the service was ok but nothing special. I had heard a lot of great things about this place but it was just ok. The menu was huge and the price was cheaper then a lot of restaurants but as I said the food was just ok.

The pizza is really good here but the koubideh kabob and the lamb rack is even better. The rice is yummy too. Try the other food on the menu! It is great food cooked by really nice people.

If you know what good pizza is then try this place. Its a change of pace from the normal pizza joints. and the menu offers a few gems. The Kabab platter is great, and the Calzones are also good. The seating is adequate, and lunch is normally peaceful. The parking lot tends to be a little dark for my taste... More

I don't know if it's their sauce or dough, however, their pizza stands head & shoulders above other area pizza establishments. I've had more than my fair share of pizza over the past 40 years & can tell you our family drives by several other Italian restaurants in order to experience one great pizza from Athens! The great thing is... More

I placed an order from Athens Pizza based on a recommendation from the front desk clerk at the Quality Inn & Suites in Matthews. I had a special order pizza - one with hamburger/ground beef and sauce but without cheese due to a dairy allergy, along with a side order of fries. My order was delivered right to my room... More
