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!

The food is usually quite good and the prices are reasonable. One of the best places to eat in Kinston.

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!!!!

Down hill from a year ago! Rude manager or owner. Lost orders. Cheese on the pizza the only way to describe is like chewing on an old piece of gum! Or sawdust mixed in? Maybe the owner was getting a discount on bulk cheese? But it was horrible! Never go again

This is really good Greek food. It is a cross between a full service restaurant and a fast food place. You order at a counter and they deliver the food to a table of your choosing. Their menus is varied and includes pizza as well as Greek items and sandwiches. It is good for vegetarians and non veg folks too.

Had the cheese-steak sub. it was good, but nothing over the top. Restaurant was clean from what I could see. Fast food sort of establishment with same level of food quality and pricing.

The kids pizza was a little lacking in flavor. But it was smothered in cheese and my 4 year old loved it. The service was friendly although a little slow. The chicken souvlaki was so fresh and delicious. It was the favorite of all the adults at the table.
