More than once Yelp events have brought me to places that were completely off my radar, and then I keep coming back. Athena’s will definitely be on that list. Imagine being in a friend’s house where someone’s Abuela or Auntie has invited you over for an authentic family meal. This is the Athena’s vibe… The corn app was INSANE! Like legit will be dreaming about tasty corn chips and that corn dip. It’s like pimento cheese and street corn had a baby… omg I was in heaven. The butternut squash chimichanga was so flavorful. I split that and the brisket, and just FYI, tonight we went to a local BBQ place and the brisket at Athena’s was better… like exponentially better. It may be the best brisket I’ve had in a decade.Amanda B, Yelp Elite
We got two burritos chimichanga style, all dressed with toppings. One with carne asada and one with brisket. They were beautiful! The carne asada we’ve had before, and was delicious again, but the brisket stole the show! We then ordered two brisket burritos to go for family members who weren’t able to come with us to have at home. They enjoyed theirs too and said they’d definitely want us to bring them the same thing again! This was our first time eating in, which was a great experience! Tais is an excellent host and is clearly passionate about her and Adam’s business. It really shows through everything they do, from decorating the restaurant to the food to their involvement with their community.Sarah W, Yelp Elite
