Excellent experience. A food truck in a semi permanent location with outdoor seating. Simple menu but lots of variation and options that anyone will enjoy!Service was fast and friendly. Owner came out and chatted with several people (including us). Felt like he really cared for the customer base and what we thought about the food.Vegetarian options: Lots of veggie options. Clearly pointed out.Dietary restrictions: I am low carb and they had lots of options that were delicious!

Best Greek salad I've ever had!! Beef/lamb Gyro was good. Plenty of meat just a little dry. 3rd time I've eaten here.

The staff is so friendly and the gyros are amazing! The meat is great and has so much flavor! Both my husband and I get it with feta and banh mi! I’ve been wanting to try other things on the menu but just too obsessed with the gyro!


Generous portion of gyro at a good price. Perfect for a post whitewater rafting trip. Nice outdoor seating.

My partner and I love The Olive! The gyros are always delicious from falafel to meats, and we love the the fried pickles and mozzarella sticks. Workers are always so sweet and very friendly!

Absolutely delicious! I got the Greek salad with lamb and a sparkling water. I’m already looking forward to the next time I’m in Buena Vista so that I can visit the Olive again :)

The gyros are big and flavorful. Our only problem is we have an 8 year old that does not like spicy stuff and we mistakenly ordered him the chicken which is spicy. Friendly folks. This is a food truck but they have a nice outside dining area.

We enjoyed the Tanimal Bowls, and the kids got the classic wraps. Generous portions that will fill your tummy. It's an open space seating and only a few tables.

Such kind people and the food was SO good! We came to grab a bite before we headed home and they were already close but still served us. Super tender and flavorful lamb and chicken!

Was visiting Buena Vista for the day, about to leave and stopped by The Olive. Despite being 15 minutes past closing the guys were friendly and eager to serve! It may have been the end of the day, but the food was GREAT! Highly recommend if you pass that way!!

Solid street gyro shack good for a quick bite on your way to living your dreams. All outdoor seating, so be cautious of the rain. Falafel was interesting, a little like mini hashbrown tater tot mix, but not bad. Build your own wrap is definitely the best method to go, but they do have some standard quick options too. Fries are reliable for sure.

Excellent food, great dudes running the truck. Witnessed a homeless guy come up to order they took care of the cost of his meal. Solid to see them supporting their community as well as making great food!

What an amazing and tasty place this is !! You must stop and try it , I’m pretty sure I tried everything in the menu because we were so hungry . It was raining and the cashier was very kind, the service was more than 5 stars . Best Mediterranean food in colorado .

So good we ate here twice in one day before we headed back to Summit County! Great prices, incredible food and the dudes making it are rad.It’s easy to mess up Mediterranean food, but these guys nail it! Fresh ingredients and great flavors all day.Get the Tanimal with fries in it and you won’t be disappointed.
