Athenian Corner in Lowell

I feel sad to write this review since I have been a loyal patron for a very long time. I can only hope that one of the family members reads this. In general the Merrimack Valley is lacking in authentic Greek restaurants given the number of people of Greek heritage in the area. There are only two authentic and family run Greek restaurants and they are in Lowell: The Olympia and The Athenian Corner. I have always preferred the Athenian Corner to the Olympia...just personal preference being of Greek heritage. That being said, the Athenian Corner has been so very bad in its food preparation for a long time, I feel I must write a review.
Food is or take-out. It is the same. Moussaka and Patsitsio contains only ground beef and no lamb....I am Greek so do not try to trick me! A greek salad does not consist of a few fine crumbles of feta... used to be a slice of feta. Egg lemon soup should not be as thich as stew without the egg lemon broth.
In general, the entire restaurant is very much need of Robert Irvines's help!!! Pulling up to the parking lot with a Baine's Exterminator car parked in the front of the restaurant does not help.
I will be trying the Olympia from now on :)
