This place is awesome. First off the staff was amazing, super friendly, and very prompt. Food came out fast. For starters you have to get the feta, it’s absolutely amazing. We had a group of 6 so we got to try a bunch of the options. Greek fries are delicious. The gyro was massive, piled high with tasty gyro meat. The chicken was equally as good, fresh tender and juicy. Definitely recommend and cant wait to get back when im in the area

We had such a great time here. The atmosphere was fantastic and we were able to dine outside. Beautiful scenery and the food was really good. It was a really great spot and we will definitely be returning!

The Athenian Room is a Lincoln Park landmark that has been in busy over 50 years. They serve up classic Greek dishes in a class Greek restaurant ambiance. We had the gyros dinner and vegetarian salad. Both were delicious and hit the spot. Important reminder—The Athenian Room is CASH ONLY!* *There is an ATM next door in Glascott’s Tasty, tasty gyros. Loved the old school, neighborhood vibe here. Spinach pie good, fries good, feta good, gyros great, pita good, tzatziki good. Salad was a bit basic and I’ll probably skip in next time in favor of other options.

If we were regulars, this is a place where everyone would know your name! It’s family owned and the owner and son are there greeting guests! There is an adjoining bar where you can order drinks. You cannot go wrong with their charred burgers and chicken! The Greek fries are so mouthwatering and lemony! It’s a great place for families as well.

They even gave us free baklava for dessert! Whenever we are in the area, we make sure to stop in and bring our friends as well! great chicken kalamata! Love the fries underneath, the food was hot when it came to the table and the meat was fall-off-the-bone. Pretty robust menu and I definitely recommend want to come back to try the skirt steak. Remember though—cash only

The food was fine, prices were reasonable and service was quick. The Greek fries to my surprise didn’t have feta cheese on it due to which I had to put feta crumbles in order to bring flavor. It didn’t taste the same as the one I had at Lincoln Park Greek Fest. The Gyros were good but I think they should have served it on pita already topped with tomatoes, onions, tzatziki sauce rather than serving it separate.

A disadvantage is that it is cash only and doesn’t accept debit/credit card. So be prepared to have plenty of cash although they do have an ATM in the bar next door. The restaurant is a little dark with adorable brick arches and details. The food here is delicious, and the staff is so so friendly and kind. Portions and pricing are very fair. Highly recommend! There aren’t reservations so it’s first come, first serve with indoor and outdoor seating
