Pulled off highway to feed our hungry family. Athena diner was welcoming, great menu including robust kid selections. I had the best patty melt and my husband loved his Gyro. Kids were given hats to color with new crayons which killed some time waiting for their lunch. We will remember Athena next time we do a road trip south.

For my first visit here i had trouble deciding what to have. The menu is huge and they offer so many different options. Everything from Breakfast to dinner and then some. Ordered a chicken wrap which comes with a huge portion of fries. The burgers are good and the portions are large. Good quality, good taste, nice service. Perfect for a quick bite any time of day

Nothing beats a diner breakfast after a New Year's night of drinking. Admittedly this was a family NYE, but I need my egg omelette with home fries and toast in the morning. Athena delivered! All the food we ordered was wonderful and we had no wait first thing in the morning of 1/1/2018. I can absolutely recommend their waffles (kid's breakfast) and eggs!

I grew up in Fairfield and still have a ton of reasons to return. The Athena has been doing a booming business for as long as I can remember.

Most recently had the opportunity to enjoy lunch with my husband and my brother. We each ordered something different and totally enjoyed our selections. I particularly enjoyed my gyro which was served open faced on the pita with lots of fresh ingredients. Generous portion. Glad I didn't order the platter with fries.

Prices are very reasonable and staff are efficient and pleasant. The dining area has undergone some recent freshening up. A nice improvement.

Of the diners around Fairfield, this is the best one. Can't go wrong with pancakes or an omelet. If it's busy, sometimes you might feel forgotten, but that kinda adds to the diner vibe. Check it out.
