If you feel like Greek or Mediterranean food then Olympians is a place you cannot miss. Whether it is a gyro, mousaka, or soulvaki you are in for a special treat This is truly a wonderful place to eat. Gene P Coplay PA

Visited on a Sunday evening. Service was prompt and food was delicious. Eggplant Parmesan was freshly prepared and yummy. Salads and breads were outstanding.

I can always be sure of getting a great meal at Olympians. The food is fresh, hot and delicious. The mozzarella caprese is excellent. The Gyro dinner is my go to favorite.

Being Greek, I hang out in the restaurants a quite a lot, but only because of its friendly and relaxed atmosphere and authentic Greek cuisine. The restaurant also offers American and Italian dishes, as well as great wine selection. One thing that I don't like at all is the music played in the background, which I find tacky and tasteless....

This is a great family type of restaurant, no-frills, good food, great smiles. There are a lot of menu Choices. One of my favorites is the steak and cheese sandwich. Their fries are to die for! Although the restaurant is always full, rarely do you have to wait for a table. Very Reasonably priced for the area.

Located across the street from the Alexandria Wegman's store, this place is great for a quick and inexpensive meal. My friends and I usually go every weekend for their breakfast (they open at 9:00 on Sat/Sun). The waffles and pancakes (blueberry is a personal favorite) are awesome. Freshly-made and tasty. And the omelets are generous and served with decent home... More

The food at Olympians is always excellent. I usually order the gyro, which is fabulous, but this last time I ordered the Reuben Burger. Holy Moly what a burger! I'm not sure what the others at the table ordered because I was to engrossed in my burger. Best burger I've had since Millers in Dearborn, MI.

This is our favorite local restaurant. we eat here about once a week and sometimes more often than that! The service is always with a smile and the food is delicious. I highly recommend the French Onion soup - outstanding! I do not know how many times I have ordered their mixed green salad with Filet Mignon tips. I also... More

Our waitress was amazing, attentive and polite. She mentioned the most popular items they sell are their pizza, cheesesteaks and gyros. We ordered the pizza and gyros. The gyros were amazing! I loved every bite. Then we tried the pizza we planned on taking home, but wanted to try first. Not really impressed. Very bland. Seemed like there was no... More

Varied menu with American , Greek and Italian predominant. All good, never had a bad meal in over a decade of going there. Convenient parking. Reasonable prices. Homemade desserts. Gyros are excellent and look for the daily specials.
