I didn't care for their food at all. It had no taste to me. I would not recommend wasting your time stopping there.

We were in a rush & needed something fast. We stopped here on a whim & were not disappointed. We were also in the mood for some non-chain food. This fit the bill perfectly.

I love how they pack their pita with spinach and mushrooms and onions. It is so good I wanted to pack a cooler and take them with me.

This is not a fancy place but it is a great place for a gyros and single serving pizzas. And of course, you can't leave without having the baklava. Yum!

I love the Olympian. I discovered them back in 2007 and had a Spinach Pita. I was in love at that moment. Every time I return to Kinston I order that at least once. As much as I travel this country, I have NEVER found a Greek restaurant that serves Spinach Pita's. I love this place!!!!
