70 reviews for “Athens Pizza & Pasta

  1. Sue Eaton

    Very homey. Family run business that has been around forever. Huge portions. Greek family that makes Italian food, with a touch of Greek.

  2. David Lorengo

    Back open after the fire closed them for 16 months. Still the same great food and friendly family run place.

  3. Behnam Gh

    I had good experience over here but today cashier was so rude
    we had issue on the price online advertised $23 and when i went to pick up the pizza he charged me $30 (this review is not about the money) when i paid for my pizza he ask if i need my recipe i said no he just told me you can leave now.
    im saying again i had very good experience here before but I believe they need to reconsider who works for them and how they treat a customer.

  4. Chris Brown

    The meals we were served tonight were incredible. Had the cold cut and turkey grinder and the Athens pizza. Everything was cooked to perfection. And at the end of our meal we were given 4 to go boxes of baklava. Athens Pizza and Pasta has everything you’d want in a restaurant! Amazing customer service, extremely polite servers, and incredible food! Absolutely will be back to Athens next time we’re in town!!!

  5. Corrie Brown

    Food was not great. Puddles of grease on everything, pizza was so greasy the toppings just fell off as we picked it up. Two of us have upset stomachs. Really disappointed since I tried to take my wife somewhere she hadn’t been for her birthday. Staff was friendly and kind though.

  6. Bree Gannon

    We ordered grinders while traveling through. I called about 30 minutes out, outside if Tacoma. It took a little longer than expected to get there, but the subs were still fresh and hot. Best hot sub I’ve had in a long time and my only regret is that I live 4 hours away.

  7. Daniel Stubbs

    Had the Canadian bacon grinder it was spot on. Wait staff was friendly and courteous

  8. carlos ibarra

    An excellent quality of food, authentic Italian flavor and very rich sandwiches with fresh ingredients and not to mention the bread that accompanies the pasta, in addition to the quality service of the waiters, an excellent place, I will not stop visiting it.

  9. Aaron Brummett

    The pizza is sort of expensive but it tastes great and it’s worth it

  10. Pam Miller

    Delicious!! Our table had a mix of pizza, Spaghetti, ribs and salads!! Food was awesome! Service was great!

  11. Anthony Menendez

    This is a wonderful place great Grinders and pizza. The family that owns it are wonderful people

  12. Ian Carlin

    $30 large pizza below Papa John’s quality. Came out burnt. Maybe worth $15 but absolutely below what you’d expect for expensive gourmet.

  13. Larry Wright

    I love this pizza best anywhere but tonight I got two burnt pizzas. I paid 55 for garbage. I’m highly disappointed

  14. Kayla Klassy (Somethingprettie)

    My family and I have been going to this restaurant since I was young, and have NEVER had a bad experience.

    The food is always fresh, the service friendly and always goes above and beyond when a request is made.

    The owners often come out to personally talk with people, this is probably one of the best “mom and pop” restaurants I have ever experienced.
    While everything on their menu is delicious, I would personally recommend the Grinders over everything as they are superb!
    I’m so happy the recent fire didn’t hurt their business to the point of closing and I can’t wait to be a patron for the rest of my days!!

  15. michael slaughter

    Had the lasagna… if you can call it that. Wasn’t very good. Also did some cheese bread…. also not up to par.

  16. Evelyn Young

    They have the best pizza I have ever had. my husband love the salad and my son love the grinder. This was my grandson favorite place. he had cancer and they were so good to him. Bringing him food in the hospital. Love this place.

  17. Athena Fisher

    First time I went here was 30ish years ago and my only complaint is not having a small eaters option for grinders where I could just get half, outside of lunch (with a salad) & that the prices are higher than the chains. The service has always been great, the garlic bread was a stable of my teens, and the grinders are *chef’s kiss* good.

    So pro’s =
    Everything except…
    The Cons =
    Before the fire the atmosphere was odd
    The food was more expensive than chains but got a better filled pizza than the chains.
    Wish I could just buy a half grinder anytime

    I highly recommend any grinder, the garlic bread, but can’t say much for the other items cause I have my stables when I got the budget for the higher price which is not unreasonably priced by any means

  18. A E (ARE)

    So happy they’re open again. Prices went up quite a bit

  19. Michael North

    So glad they’re back! Great food here!

  20. Kyle Reinhart

    Pizza and grinders are awesome. The bbq chicken is my favorite pizza and the pastrami grinder is #1. Very friendly staff too.

  21. felinda rehon

    Been coming here for 40 plus years.

  22. Corey Ruffin

    Best pizza in town for sure. Delicious grinders,don’t forget about cheesy bread! Brand new interior looks great bright and clean

  24. Jennifer S

    Always love Athens sense I was a teenager. I’m now 50+

  25. Jason Freeman

    Athens has been around for a very long time. There’s a reason for it! Their food is out of this world!

  26. PennySue Shives

    Because they are in need of more workers, you have to go to the counter and order.

  27. michelle Spielman

    Love this place glad white center pizza never died great food friendly staff will definitely be

  28. Michelle Gesterling

    Just a great place all the way around, staff is friendly. The food is always spectacular and the new dining room is beautiful.

  29. Terry White

  30. Steve Carrasco

  31. Stephanie Clark

    Delicious food and fast service.

  32. Leon Sodorff

  33. Chad Mercer

  34. Sharon Morris

    One of my favorite places of all time. I grew up in this town and used to love going here when I was young. This family business has been operating a LONG time. Love the turkey grinder and their pizza!! Support this local business!

  35. Traci Medford

    Athens has been a favorite of my husband’s family (&our) for over 30yrs. The food is mouthwatering delicious and the family atmosphere will have you returning again and again. We are on our 3rd generation of loyal customers.

  36. Jacob Bucy

    First time back since the remodel and not a single disappointment. Great food, great service, great lunch company!

  37. Bob Hardy

    Absolutely awesome service and food. Fast service very attentive servers, been telling everyone about our experience.

  38. Boriss Oks

    Very yummy, very filling. Didn’t wait long. Not packed with people. Love it.

  39. Kris Hudgens

    Always the best food!

  40. Todd T

    Delicious food very down home I ordered the meatball sub and was not disappointed later learning to meet balls are made by mama who comes in once a week. This kind of small family run place is rare these days and hopefully sticks around.

  41. Cristina Sims

    Loved the cold cut grinder and the salad! Don’t skip the dressing! A place I will go with my family and friends for the food and the people who prepare the delicious food!

  42. 1mmorta1 coi1

    Excellent atmosphere, family- run vibe. Crunchy, thin crust, generous toppings, perfect cheese blend. Little greasy, but the taste and service more than make up for it. Highly recommended 👊💀🍻🚬

  43. Sang Shin

    This place is awesome.

  44. julie Churco

    I’ve been going here all my life! I’ve only eaten the grinders, delicious!

  45. Randall Betts

    Best grinders around! Plus quick service and decent prices.

  46. Nick Buss

    A nice place with great food. We tried the athens special pizza and the hot pastrami sub and they were both amazing. If you live in the area definitely try it.

  47. Nate Reilly

    Been going here since I was barley able to walk! Hasn’t changed a bit, and I say that in the best way possible! The old swinging doors to the bathroom still there and I still love walking through them. You got to try the Grinders!!! Epic

  48. Scott Ward

    Been taking my mom to therapy when needed over the last months. I usually swing into Athens in Auburn for grinders. Been going to Athens since the 1980s. Family owned, if I worked a weekend in the day, I wanted a grinder. I know many of you know about Athens. I decided on a pizza… I haven’t had a Athens pizza in probably 3 decades… it was awesome.

    I highly recommend this little restaurant. It’s not every place you can go and eat. Meet and talk to the family there, how much they care about the community. Stop by your table and ask how your mother is doing with her therapy.

    Some very good people and over the past 40 years they make you feel like family.

    Athens in Auburn on main just off of M street. Show them the love they have put into the local community.

  49. Lori Lee

    We used to eat Athens Pizza almost on a daily basis back in 1987 when I lived here. I’ve craved it many times over the last 35 years and finally made my way back and couldn’t wait to try it again.
    It’s every bit as delicious as it was back then! My son was also highly impressed! Great pizza!😁

  50. Jim Trimble

    Love this place. Family favorite. Never go home hungry; food hot,fresh, and tasty every time

  51. Martin Olmos

    The pizza was really slippery when I took a bite and the toppings with the cheese fell of as well .😕

  52. stan s

    Love their grinders. I’ve been eating here for years and have always had great service.

  53. Laney Kozy

    So glad they are open again. A nice little upgrade to the atmosphere. Same delicious recipes.

  54. Crissi Huffman

    No idea how this place has over 4 stars.. 23.00 and I left hungry. Plain turkey sandwich.. literally nothing to it. No refill. Cold plain atmosphere. Can’t even smell food in there.. just blah took my 23.00 meal home to my dogs

  55. Beth Leurquin

    Love this places food so much. Drove from Port Orchard just for a pepperoni grinder. Never disappointed. So glad that they were able to rebuild and continue to support the community as they have for many years.

  56. Hannah Elizabeth

    So nice there and very down to earth with AMAZING food literally everything is delicious. I get manicotti and eat for two days🍽️🍕🍝

  57. Tim Hostetler

    Great place for awesome food, staff is amazing

  58. robert schmider

    Good food good people I suggest you order a grinder

  59. L Minion

    Went in the middle of the day it was nive and quiet. The waiter was very nice and patient. I appreciate them letting me and my friends just sit there and talk for about an hour and didn’t bother us. I love that you can pay when your on your way out.

  60. Cory

    My wife ordered the phone talk to probably the cook very rood then talked to the front end girl she was legit got our order but don’t know if it was worth it

  61. Darryl Coker

    This was my first time going to this restaurant, and I’m glad that I did. we ordered the BBQ chicken pizza and it was the best pizza I ever had I’m going back to try everything else 😋

  62. Kira L'Heureux

    Walked in on a Saturday night and it was BUSY but smelled amazing and every single staff member I interacted with was incredibly friendly, made you feel important even while slammed. My husband and I picked up takeout grinders and they told us it would be at least a 20 wait, we ended up only having to waiting about 8 minutes! My roast beef was amazing, the bread and spice mix they used really made it great. My husbands bbq chicken seemed to be lack luster. It was very basic and the meat was not spread throughout the sandwich.

  63. Dalton L'Heureux

    Tried the BBQ Chicken Sub and the Roast Beef Sub. Both were very good, but wouldn’t say they were worth a round two given the price and lack of side (adding to the $$$). Service was fast and friendly, though they could use more seating/waiting space for pick-up/takeout. We didn’t eat in, but the dining area was bright and clean. Fairly loud when busy.

  64. Wil

    The food is great as always. Would give a 5 but service was not very good. Came in to be seated, there was one person in front of me. Took 5 minutes for someone to say hi. By now there were 6 people in the lobby area. I get it there to go business was busy. They handed me a menu and said sit where ever you want and walked away. I sat my self and waited another 5 minutes before anyone came over to offer water. I ordered a salad and small pizza. Salad came right away. That was good waiting 15 or so for pizza again that’s not bad. Then no one else check on me for 20 mins. By then I’m done. My drink had been empty for 5 to 10 minutes. They offered at that time if I we ould like a refill. A little late I’m ready to leave. No one smiled no one was in a rush (I liked the casual part) but you could still check on your customers before they are done. There were only about 5 tables being used in the sitdown part so not to busy. I watch a guy have to flag down the server twice. Just not the same great experience I got last time. Kinda blaa on the service part…but again great food.

  65. D Nel

    Relaxed,and visited and no pressure from staff. Great food; those sandwiches were very tasty!

  66. Marina Karnavas

    Food was tasty, spaghetti serving rather small. Take-out was a little expensive.


    Love this place.

  68. jenni tipton

    First off the owner was so nice to us he asked us how we found him explained the menu made sure my pregnant daughter had a seat while we waited for our food then chatted with us he said it be about 12 mins and I swear we only waited 5 mins maybe either it was that fast or it was the nice conversation either way i was happy with the serve now the food! I got a turkey grinder with tomatoes and it was so delicious the bread was warm toasty and crusty if that means sense lol does to me it was prefectly seasoned and my daughter got the baked ravioli’s they were so bomb! We plan on being return customers for SURE!

  69. Michelle de la Cruz

    I normally do not post reviews but I do read many of them. I wanted to write one for Athens. I try to support locals rather than franchises and Friday night pizza was on mind. Athens popped up on feed and because of the reviews, I went for it. I called to place my order to go for a small Canadian Bacon/Pineapple and the large Athen’s special. The staff was attentive, friendly and welcoming once I walked in. (The Greek Gods sung) This was one of the BEST pizzas I ever had. My mom and I are so picky with the crust and I normally discard it. Not this time. My mom loved her Canadian bacon pizza and I nearly killed half of the large Athens. I usually only have 2 slices of pizza because it’s so-so. Thanks Athens! You gained a repeat customer. Thankfully, I’m near Kent/Lea hill and only 10 min away. I’m looking forward to try the grinders!

  70. Shawna Woolery

    We ordered pizza today, it was the absolute best pizza we’ve had!!!!
