Athens Grill - Toms River

I tried this new greek restaurant for lunch today. Its located in the same shopping center as El Familiar - Stella Towne Center off of Route 166 in Toms River. The space while small and sparsely decorated was casual and comfortable. Myself and my co-diners ordered pretty much the same thing. We started with an order of Tzatziki and nicely grilled pita (cool, creamy and wonderful) and then proceeded to have a traditional greek salad with a nice skewer of chicken souvalaki. The salad was delicious (consisting of garden fresh tomatoes, cucumbers, onion, feta, black olives and stuffed grape leaves in a very light dressing) while the chicken was perfectly seasoned and juicy. A tell tale sign of the quality of this restaurant was the feta and the stuffed grape leaves. Both tasted fresh and homemade. We eneded the meal with a nice large piece of homemade baklava and a plate of sliced watermellon compliments of the house. This place is sure winner and a welcome addition to the barren wasteland known as the TR restaurant scene.
