Recycling plastic and styrofoam

After a wonderful meal, it became apparent that nothing was being recycled. There was styrofoam thrown in with plastic plates and utensils. Is anything being done to separate the recyclebles? I'm worried and won't patronize unless there is recycling.

Had the cheese-steak sub. it was good, but nothing over the top. Restaurant was clean from what I could see. Fast food sort of establishment with same level of food quality and pricing.

The kids pizza was a little lacking in flavor. But it was smothered in cheese and my 4 year old loved it. The service was friendly although a little slow. The chicken souvlaki was so fresh and delicious. It was the favorite of all the adults at the table.

We always have a large pizza with mushrooms, onions and 4 slices of gyro meat. Delicious! They offer $2 off coupons in Kinston Free Press.

We stopped in to Olympian on our way to visit Mother Earth Brewing because all the other restaurants rated higher aren't open on the weekends. What's wrong with Olympian as I encountered them 1. bottle of water cost .50. Really! Not being able to get a glass of water like at every other restaurant tells me this place loves price... More

Had the Gyro Platter. Great salad, meat and rice perfect. Don't let the fast food look of the building fool you. The food is as good as any sit down restaurant and reasonably priced. I'll be back when I'm in the area again.

Whether you want traditional Greek dishes, Italian, subs or burgers this is your place. A little pricy but worth it. Extremely busy during lunch; not quite as busy at supper time or weekends since most people in Kinston go out of town on the weekends.

Great Greek cuisine, excellent quality and taste. Courteous service. salads are politically correct, so if you want Feta cheese and olives, you have to ask ..... with no additional charge ! Overall, food is rewarding and takes you back to the Acropolis !!! :-)
