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!

This place is a great find. The food os always consistently good and Ive yet to have a bad meal here. The pizza and pasta are great and the sandwiches dont disappoint. My personal favorite is the Souvlaki. I hear the gyros are great as well!

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.

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!

I have eaten at the Olympian several times and it is always yummy! My biggest complaint was not having an online menu. So I have decided to change that. I am uploading a menu from 12/2013. Of course prices are subject to change :-) Enjoy!

Tried Olympian and our family was really pleased with the food. Situated close to Downtown Kinston, the restaurant features both typical fast food seating inside as well as a "call ahead drive thru". Server at counter, where you order, suggested the Chicken Souvlaki (which was delicious), the Steak and Cheese sandwich, and the Spaghetti. We tried the Souvlaki, a gyro... More

The food at Olympian is good -- not great -- but good. I have had the Greek salad there as well as the gyro sandwich and their fries. I have also had their baklava. The gyro is good, but the pita bread employed isn't the fresh, stretchy kind that you hope for...even if they steamed it a little it would... More
