Get your fill of authentic Greek cuisine right in the heart of Arlington. Known best for its dinner time service, diners will find themselves right at home at Athena Pallas Greek Restaurant, an eatery with a casual atmosphere featuring exposed brick and large wine bar.
Start off with a cold or hot appetizer, depending on your mood and the time of year. Yogurt and garlic dip, also known as tzatziki, will tickle your tastebuds once the chilled, housemade yogurt hits your tongue. Enjoy fried foods? Try the Kasseri cheese served with lemon, or the tender calamari fried until crispy.
Patrons who have dined here in the past recommend the rice and lamb bundled in grape leaves. If lamb isn’t your taste, try the leaves stuffed with ground beef instead. Traditional Greek dishes like spinach pie, braised lamb shank, and moussaka are also always on the menu. To finish the meal, you simply can't miss the Baklava, a traditional Greek dessert.
