The Olympia Restaurant is an eatery located in the Bronx. [1]


Lacking three Ghostbusters to deal with the three Class Fives haunting the restaurant, Janine Melnitz was forced to put the case on the back burner. When Special Agent Melanie Ortiz was in town between FBI investigations, she had to go back on a promise to help out due to a new case that came up. She wanted to borrow Egon Spengler and Kylie Griffin. Janine gave her the Olympia case to deal with as a pretext to ask Egon and Kylie for their help. The ghosts launched what appeared to be meat patties at them and dodged return fire. Egon accidentally shot the register but one of the ghosts appeared on its face and spit coins. Melanie managed to wrangle him. Once it was trapped, the other two appeared above Egon, Melanie, and Kylie.


  • The Olympia Restaurant is based on a Saturday Night Live "Olympia Cafe" sketch that featured the late John Belushi.
  • In Ghostbusters International #4, page 10:
    • The ghosts are visually based on John Belushi, Laraine Newman, and Dan Aykroyd
      • Belushi portrayed Pete Dionasopolis, the owner of the diner
      • Newman portrayed Sandy, a waitress, from the sketch in season 3 episode 14 (originally aired on March 18, 1978)
      • Aykroyd portrayed George Dionasopolis, a cook and Pete's first cousin, seen in the sketch in season 3 episode 11 (originally aired on January 21, 1978)
    • In panel 2, the fountain station has the Blody art.
  • In Ghostbusters International #4 , page 11
    • In Panel 1, the "No fries, cheeps!" is a line of Pete's in the sketches.
    • The ghost in the register states, "Cheeps!"
      • In the Saturday Night Live Olympia sketch, "Cheeps" was chips - one of only 3 things that could be successfully ordered off the menu.
