The place is usually busy, but service and food are always consistent. I've eaten in, and taken out, and both are good choices.

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 Outdated menu and decor, it seems there isn’t any quality control or seasoning!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.

I had the steak and cheese sandwich which was very good with the chips and everyone else seemed to be happy with their lunches as well.

A good name and good food. Scattering of Greek, Italian, American food. Very much a local family restaurant. Seems busy from 5 to 7:00 PM. Thins out about 7:30 PM. When restaurant filled, somewhat noisy. After crowd thins out, much quieter. Service at the table...was quick but while eating, seldom saw server. Water glass tended to not get refilled much. When I asked for more water, waitress brought over a small pitcher of water. Good food.More

Spartans' food is consistently good--not superb but good--and the service is very good. They make an excellent Gyro. Other Greek dishes are very good. Omelettes are big and good. Skip the salads; they are mainly iceberg lettuce. Ambience is pleasant for a family dinner or...Sunday brunch; not romantic.More

Always a good pick for the Burke community. Dependable food and service. Been coming here for many years. When the kids come home to visit we always hit Spartans.

Long time family restaurant. We've been going since 1988 but haven't been recently. Still a consistent winner. The Greek dishes are superb and authentic. The spinach pie is to die for.as teenagers would say (and mine used to about the food). I had the Chicken...Parm with a side of spaghetti. It was perfect. Greek salad- order the dressing on the side and eat only half and take the rest home. It's that big and that goodMore

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.
