Even with their sights set on eternal glory, the well-greaved Achaeans besieging Troy had to break for dinner. Feast like a hero with today’s Groupon for Greek eats and drinks at Athens Market Taverna, a Hellenic house of savory delights located downtown. Choose from the following meal-based options:

  • For $15, you get $35 worth of dinner, which is served Monday through Saturday from 4 p.m. until 10 p.m.
  • For $8, you get $20 worth of lunch, which is served Monday through Friday from 11:30 a.m. until 4 p.m.

For midday feasting, snag a lunch menu and dive right in with a starter such as octopothakia (charbroiled baby octopus lightly sautéed with herbs and garlic, $10.50) before moving onto a savory gyro sandwich with a Greek salad (sliced roasted lamb, tzatziki, and diced vegetables, $8.95). To dine in sundown style, arrive for dinner and savor the flaming flavor of the saganaki (baked imported cheese laced with flaming brandy, $10.25). Sample the best of the house with the Athens Market Special—dolmathes, eggplant, zucchini, sirloin moussaka, meaty pastitsio pasta, and a Greek lamb chop served with roasted potatoes and green beans ($23.50). To finish the experience, try the yalaktobouriko (vanilla custard in filo with honey, $3.25) and wander home over the course of a decade.


San Diego magazine named Athens Market Taverna the 2008 Critic’s Pick for best Greek cuisine. Zagat rated Athens Market Taverna’s fare “very good to excellent.” Fodor’s also reviewed the restaurant. Yelpers give it an average of 3.5 stars. > * “Fresh”, “authentic”, “consistently good” Greek “staples” make for a “nice change” of pace – Zagat > * Athens Market Taverna and the ever-present owner Mary Pappas seem as timeless as Greece itself, and the place remains a local classic. – Fodor’s

Excellent atmosphere. The staff was very friendly, and the vibe felt quaint and hip at the same time.
