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.

Walking thru the Reading Terminal Market, we couldn't decide what to eat. Then we found this place. Sat right down, ordered gyros and fries. Wasn't disappointed at all. So tasty, much better than expected. Don't pass this place up!!

Love this place! So yum. If you're a frequent customer of the Reading Terminal, or you live in Philly and you've never had one, definitely try it.

I limit my gluten intake for health and tummy issues. This place is hands down the best gluten free gyro that I have been blessed to ever roam across. The quality and precaution they take is great. When ever I get the urge to eat...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....More
