Visited this restaurant after a favorable review in the local paper. It certainly lived up to its accolades. Good food..we especially liked the lamb dishes. It is an order at the counter and pick up your tray which offered quick service. The desserts are authentic and inexpensive.

Both the gyro plate and the gyro we ordered tasted good and came in plentiful portions. In the gyro plate there was one strip that was kind of tough, but the rest of the gyro meat was tender and flavorful. The pricing of all the menu items is very reasonable. I would recommend this restaurant if you are in the... More

Beware! If there is no parking behind the restaurant, do NOT PARK AT McDonald's even if you buy drinks! They will boot your car immediately and it will cost you $75 to get it free. Don't worry, the jerk never leaves the parking lot! He's there to take your money! Otherwise, the food is great! I always have the calamari... More

Have been here twice and both times found the food to be ok, very much on the greasy side but a decent value for the money. Certainly not the best green food in town but ok for a quick fix.

I had not been here in a while and was pleasantly surprised by the food which was very good. The management offered me to try the hummus and I was good because it was made from scratch.

The Olympia was not quite as good as I remember it being, but it was still very good. We were not sorry that we came here. I didn't hear any complaints from our group. I think that everyone enjoyed their food.

Fantastic authentic Greek food. Gyros, lentil soup, and tabouli salad all are excellent. Prices provide good value. The facility is dated, but clean. This restaurant appears to be family operated.

A very nice Greek restaurant I enjoyed munching on my gyro - so tasty. I also appreciated the decor of photographs and maps of Greece. A great lunch.

Started off bad having to pay for parking and then got worse. . The skewed lamb was minimal portion for the price and overcooked. Black atound the edges. The cook who barks out the numbers needs a lesson in courtesy.

We didn't feel like a huge dinner so we stopped by for a Gyros. The staff and service were great, very fast. The restaurant was clean and pleasant. The Gyros were very tasty and flavorful, tender meat, good sauce.
