I ordered a lamb gyro plate. Was disappointed because meat slices were very thin and it did not taste good. Salad was ok

We always stop here when we're in the Reading Terminal Market. The Gyros and Gyro Platters are excellent. The Gyro Platter comes with meat, pita bread, tzatziki sauce and a Greek salad with Feta cheese and grapes. We had a platter this weekend and it...More

Okay, the rustic Greek salad is very, very, very good. It's fresh, tasty, and seems healthy. I would definitely order it again. Great service. We sat and ate at the counter, but many people were taking it to go.

We had lunch here. The gyros were tasty and a good size. The lamb was tender & the French fries were more than enough to share. The waitress was very pleasant.

This place was quite popular when I visited- about a 15 minute wait in line. Staff was hustling, and service was good. Very tasty gyro. Would eat here again.

Had a tasty Gyro sitting in front of me within 1 minute. Hefty meat portion. Great if needing your food quickly at lunch.

This is my favorite place for gyros. I had previously reviewed Olympic and commented about one of the employees being not especially friendly, but on my visit today she waited on me again and she couldn't have been nicer or friendlier.

Lamb Slouvlaki & fresh fries (nice & crisp) are to die for! All in 5 minutes. I can't wait to eat here again.

After a hard day of touring, we went to the Market Area and found the Olympic Gyro. The portions, especially on the platter, were generous and tasty. Would definitely return if in that area again.
