Very good burgers and sandwiches. No longer serves beer. Pizza and Italian dishes are okay, but not memorable.

Visited this restaurant for the first time in November. My wife and I order two platters which were ok, It seems this place charges for everything from water, to extra sauce. I thought they would also charge us for a take out tray for the food we did not finish eating or foil to wrap our leftovers in. They seem... More

I'm from New England and I moved to NC for the weather, but I miss good food. The North End in Boston has The best Italian and Greek food! The pizza here is very close second! Thanks for bringing a piece of home to NC! You can pick up at a drive up window too!

Took a Sunday drive in eastern nc and ended up in kinston at supper time...wandered about n settled on Olympian based on cars in parking lot...nice n busy. Great Greek and American offerings...chicken souvlaki was superb. He had gyro and really enjoyed it a lot. We will definitely return soon...service friendly, restaurant clean, prices fair. Win/win!!!

Have been wanting to try this place for a while and finally had lunch here a couple of times. Unfortunately, despite its popularity locally, it was a letdown. The food is really nothing more than overpriced fast food with a Greek theme. I've tried the spinach pita and the gyro platter. Neither lived up to expectations.

Their gyros are delicious! Glad to have this place in the area so I can get my Greek food fix whenever I'm in the mood. Their french fry portions are so big that if you are with somebody else I'd suggest sharing one order!

Ordered chicken kabob platter twice and the chicken was great, the fries were just average, and the greek salad was good and HUGE! Really too much food - although we would have preferred less fries and more pita bread. We ordered extra pita on the side. Very filling and good value. Typical fast food kind of decor. Teenagers behind the... More

Food is really good and served quick. The menu has a variety of selections of Greek influenced dishes, along with traditional options such as wings, pizza, subs, french fries, etc. Love the gyro and the chicken souvlaki sandwiches.

Love the Greek sandwiches, the pizza, salads are awesome, and desserts are divine! Sometimes, the wait staff is a little slack b/c have young high school kids as waters/waitresses. Overall, though, the experience and foods outweigh the bad!
