On August 27th 1966, John and Asiemoula Papadopoulos opened the first Athens Pizza in Putnam, Connecticut. Paper plates were used and drinks were served from a Coke machine. Although only 10" pizzas and sandwiches were sold, everything was homemade, from the meatballs to the tomato sauce. In the summer of 1977, John and Asiemoula opened their first Georgia Athens Pizza in Decatur and it has been a local favorite ever since. Even after a major face lift in 1991, the food has not changed and neither has the spirit of the founders. The same delicious recipes are still used today, over 25 years later. We hope you enjoy your visit with us and we thank you for the warm support and patronage. It is because of our dear customers that this family restaurant has been a long-standing Atlanta tradition. We look forward to passing it on to future generations.
