When ever I get the urge to eat a gyro in philly this is my go to place. it is located right inside... More

The service and attentiveness of the staff is top notch. The food is your typical Greek countertop faire but it doesn't disappoint. The food is quick and well prepared and they truly care about their product. Well done.

This was our second meal stop at the Reading Terminal Market and once again we were not disappointed! Service was fast and attentive! Gyro's came out piping hot and piled with tzatziki sauce which made me quite happy! Must try if you're at the market!

Olympic is the place to stop for a Gyro. Situated same side as Baskin Robbins behind Carmens - there a plenty of bar type seating available to enjoy your meal. The warm Gyro with the freshest ingredients makes it hard to not just eat one. All food made right in front of you and served quickly. Great team behind the... More

Ordered chicken breast, got chicken thigh. No apology nor credit for food not eaten when brought to owner's attention. Greasy salad and sides. Will not return!

I love a good gyro and the tzatziki sauce can make or break it. This place's home made sauce makes it! And the baklava is excellent also. Will make this a regular stop on my visits to the city.

Service was fast but Meal was cold. Cashier was rude. Never go back. The place was quiet and even before I paid for my order my pita was ready. Didn't taste good either

My husband ordered the chicken gyro and I ordered the traditional gyro. Both were excellent. We shared fries and a large drink. Everything was ready very fast. I highly recommend Olympic Gyro!

We had every intention of getting a cheesesteak when we visited Philadelphia, but when we saw there were seats available at this counter in Reading Terminal Market, we couldn’t resist. We really enjoy Greek food. We each had a gyro with lamb and we had stuffed grape leaves. I am not much a stuffed grape leaves fan, but my fiancé... More

I took a friend from out of town to the Reading Terminal Market and although they opted for Middle Eastern fare, I choose the Olympic Gyro counter as I was drawn to the smell of roasted lamb. I had the Lamb Gyro and It was just the perfect size for lunch. The lamb was delicious...don't chicken out and choose the... More
