Athens Grill in Lowell, Indiana: Great Greek

It’s a rarity to find a Greek restaurant in a small town unless you happen to be in lovely little Lowell, Indiana at Athens Grill!

When the word on the street repeatedly pointed out the existence of a wonderful Greek restaurant in this Lake County town, Athens Grill, well, I didn’t have to think twice.

The place was super, super tiny. Really, it is just adorable. It’s also so easy to find! Right off the main drag in this small Indiana town, we didn’t even get lost or confused!

Walking inside, wow did it smell SO incredibly good! This menu is absolutely amazing. There’s a ton of great Greek favorites on here as well as a few American menu items that occasionally have a nice Greek twist.

I freely admit that I love Greek food. Greek salads, Gyros, burgers…it took me a bit of time to decide. There’s a lot of choices here!

Since the natives were getting restless and, according to Kid #1, were also starving, we decided to take advantage of their carryout option. We decided to picnic over at Lowell’s Evergreen Park.

We placed our order: a shish-ka-bob for Kid #1, a Gyro for my husband, Jeremy, and the Athens Double Cheeseburger for me! I know. I got a hamburger at a Greek restaurant? But oh my–it was so, so good!

Kid #1′s shish-ka-bob came with a pita  and buried underneath a mound of French fries. He thought it was very fun!

My husband’s mile-high Gyro looked so incredible. As to my Athens Double Cheeseburger, well, you can’t go wrong with Feta cheese, mushrooms, and green olives.

    LOL! Lowell would make for a great day trip–it’s about an hour away from Lafayette.

    Hey, just imagine being me–all these great places to eat but I can usually only go there ONE TIME! Ah! Nothing worse than getting a craving for something I’ve had that’s four hours away!

  2. Is there anything comparable a little closer to the Lafayette area? I’m going to have to think of some reason to head north. Or may have to get cooking. So many of your posts make me want to take a long drive…just to go eat somewhere!!!

    Absolutely amazing. :) It’s not very often you find Greek food, let alone GOOD Greek food in a small town! Lowell is lucky to have this one.

    Thanks for stopping by.

    I’ve been going to Athen’s Grill for years! I had both of my brothers work there as well. We love the family that owns it and the food is out of this world! Best Greek Food Around! Every time we order it is always made fresh and delicious! Would recommend to anyone and everyone!

  5. Hmm …. that’s not too far from me, just up US 41 aways.
