The recipes that we use originated with our great grandparents in Greece and have been handed down from one generation to the next. If you are looking to enjoy a freshly prepared, home cooked meal in a clean and comfortable environment, then please join us and be sure to bring the whole family! Athens Corner Grill offers authentically prepared Greek food. We use only the freshest ingredients and prepare everything in small batches to insure everything is always fresh and of the highest quality. We have a passion to bring our customers the foods we grew up with, the food we cook in our own homes, and the food that we share with our family and friends.
We don't warm up pre-cooked frozen gyro strips out of a box. Instead we do it the right way, by roasting our gyro meat on a spit and hand carving it to order. Our gyro is made using our own exclusive recipe and cannot be found anywhere else. One taste is all it takes to realize the difference between our gyro and every other! We use 100% all natural chicken breast, that we hand trim and marinate in house. We use only Angus beef and grind our own beef for our homemade burgers, meat sauce, and all other dishes. We don't buy ready made canned soups like others. We make all of our soups daily, starting with the freshest ingredients for that home cooked difference and served the way they are supposed to be, not highly modified versions served elsewhere, which are loaded with flour and artificial thickeners. We don't buy ready made baklava or galaktoboureko. Why would we when me can we make them all from scratch?! Our pastichio and moussaka are also both made from scratch in house. Sure we could just order tzatziki and hummus but that's not what we are all about. We prefer to make everything ourselves the way our grandparents did before us, the right way. There is no substitute for home made, but don't take our word for it come in and taste it for yourself!

From the selection of our store's location nestled in Roanoke's Historic Southwest District, to the imported Greek sea salt and Feta cheese we use to prepare our recipes, every detail has been painstakingly scrutinized to insure our customers have the finest and most authentic experience when they dine with us. We worked very closely over the last year with our architect, builder, and local food suppliers to create an atmosphere and menu that is authentically Greek!

Therefore we will constantly refresh our menu, bring you new selections, and some surprises that you probably wouldn't expect to see.
There will always be imitators, from the menu right down to the decor, however there is only one original.
