“Yummy Food and here is a menu!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2013

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!

“Surprisingly good. Not just Greek food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013 via mobile

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 sandwich, a spinach pita, and two calzones, meatball and pepperoni. The Calzones were excellent and amply portioned, even for two hungry teenagers. We also tried the Baklava, which was yummy. After you order, they make your food and bring it to the table. The food was fresh and hot, and the kids said they definitely wanted to come back. Recommended! Open 7 days a week.

“Good food at a good price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

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 help. Instead, the drier bread tends to break which makes for a mess of a sandwich. The flavor is good, no doubt.

The Greek salad is tasty as well, but I am used to the huge portions that you get in a Greek salad in the Detroit, MI area...now that's a Greek salad.

The french fries are quite tasty actually. I would stack them against any of the fast food chains (except 5 Guys).

The value is good, the food is good and the restaurant is clean. You should enjoy the restaurant.
