Athens, TX restaurants?????

We have to go to Mabank for an overnight trip but plan to stay in Athens as the motel situation there looks more promising. As far as restaurants, though, all I have found were comments on an Applebee's, Rounders Pizza and The Jalapeno Tree (duh--Mexican). It doesn't look too promising but does anybody have any "feed"back for me re: the above mentioned or anything else in the area???? TIA!

  1. Well, you're not going to find anything fancy... or really healthy either. I recommend the Cripple Creek BBQ, or the Lake Athens Marina.

    Definitely do NOT go to that Applebee's, I used to be a regular there, but it's gone waaaay downhill.

      Thanks for taking the time to reply....I wasn't expecting anything fancy, but my online searches hadn't turned up either of the places you mentioned! Will probably check out the Marina for the view!
