Athenian Grill was founded by Ilias Pappas, a Greek native and hospitality management major at the University of Kentucky. Ilias grew up in a small town near Athens watching his mom cook lamb on the open fire and his grandmother bake homemade pita bread in the family’s clay oven.

Today, Ilias’ vision of partnering with local farms and businesses to bring fresh, authentic Greek food to Lexington is supported by a dedicated, hardworking and growing team. Together they serve up quality food that hungry Lexingtonians can truly enjoy and feel good about!
