A really ok and convenient late night eatery right in downtown within walking distance of all the clubs. Can get crammed on weekends and only one small bathroom, but an Athens staple and a must for any visitor. Open 24/7!

The Grill is a great little restaurant with delicious shakes and other traditional American foods. I like the diner style atmosphere. You may have to wait a while ... it's popular and sometimes crowded.

The Grill is a stereotypical grease joint, with a 50's flair. The best time to go is late at night, especially after midnight because this restaurant draws an interesting crowd. The breakfast menu is good all day, but the standout feature at this diner are the milkshakes, served the old-fashioned way with a paper cup and a metal canister to keep what you haven't eaten from melting. Really. You should go and order a milkshake, like, right now.

You can't come to Athens without going to the Grill. It is open 24 hours has great food and great milkshakes. It is fun anytime, but especially after home football games!! (It is worth your wait on game day)

The grill is a great place to grab a late night milkshake or burger and the mashed potatoes are excellent. The place has a fun diner style atmosphere and the staff is friendly.
The Grill is a staple to Downtown Athens. It is great for lunch with the family or after a late night of studying. The staff is always friendly, and the atmosphere is that of a classic diner complete with a jukebox.
The Grill is one of those places that is a classic part of Athens. It's a little dirty, but any place downtown is going to be dirty. It's got great milkshakes and is open twenty four hours. It's a great hangout and a fun people watching spot.
You can't go to Athens and not eat at the grill. They are open 24 hours, perfect for the downtowners, and the service is good. Bathrooms are dirty, but what isn't downtown?
