Walt Okon – “Spartans Family Restaurant”, Burke, Virginia 2 March 2020, Rosie and I along with Ted and Meliza went to Spartans Family Restaurant in Burke, Virginia. This restaurant is easy to find in the corner of a small shopping center called Burke Village Center,...Address: 9542 Burke Rd, Burke, Virginia. It is a Casual, diner-style storefront restaurant serving up Greek favorites plus house wine & beer. The décor is nice, very clean lots of room, and casual. No tablecloth or silver with sparkling glasses. It is nice a bit romantic bit of Northern Italian and Greek style. It is known for good neighborhood cooking at a reasonable price. The sign says, “Seat yourself”. We did pick a comfortable table along the wall. We were quickly met by our waitress Flavia who was beautiful, friendly and efficient with the most engaging smile. She was smiling all night with all customers. She was outstanding. Warm garlic bread and fresh hot pita bread was served quickly with our drinks. . We ordered and Flavia was with us throughout the evening being most pleasant, spot on, and attentive everything we desired. Rosie Italian sea food dinner looked great, cook to perfection, and tasted better. I had the gyros dinner. The lamb meat was over cooked and dried out. Sad. This is a wonderful Italian/Greek restaurant with good food at a fair cost. Rosie loved her dinner so much she is already wanting to go again. I said I will just order a hamburger the next time. The restaurant had a low noise level. Every table was very clean, and each table was sanitized after the people left. There is Free public parking is directly in front of the restaurant. The kitchen is somewhat hidden behind the casher counter. I recommend this restaurant for good casual dining. (4 of 5 stars) Walt Okon, Springfield, Virginia.More

The only redeeming quality was the staff! Outdated menu and decor, it seems there isn’t any quality control or seasoning! Boring

I have been here for lunch and dinner. All of the food is good. Sometimes they get very crowded, due to their popularity. Their salads are really good, and I have enjoyed their lasagna on a few occasions. Their desserts are home made, and I...have enjoyed their carrot cake and mixed chocolate/vanilla/cheesecake combination.More

My friend and I greatly enjoyed our lunch, which was delicious and served quickly. I had the hummus appetizer and the mixed green salad with cranberries and walnuts. Perfect lunch!

Very friendly and a family owned business. Sometimes it can be busy but it is worth the wait. I would recommend this restaurant anytime.

My husband and I loved to go to dinner here on Wednesdays so we can enjoy the 1/2 off bottle of wine. Our favorite is the Gyros salad we usually share a large one with lamb. Plenty for both of us.

Don't know of any Greek style restaurants turning on a spit. There are a few that have the gyro meat turning on a typical spit.
