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.

Stopped by while visiting the Reading Terminal Market and couldn't resist. Excellent gyros with plenty of filling. I will be back!!!!

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.

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
