This is our family's old standby choice of restaurants when we can't all agree on where to go for dinner when my husband and don't feel like cooking. The menu has something for everyone. The pizza here is the best for this area of Alexandria. The restaurant is casual and very family friendly, and it is family owned as well. It's close to being a diner, but not exactly. We're from NY and desperately miss our hometown Greek-owned diner, so I can't give this place

While I stay mostly with Olympian's Greek offerings (Gyro, Souvlaki, Greek Salads, Moussaka, Pastitsio and pizza) they also serve a great burger. Hot and fresh french fries fill the plate. They serve beverages in small pitchers (like Red, Hot and Blue). I've read some reviews that complain about the service, but having been going there for several years, have not experienced poor service as reported. You won't go away hungry.

I eat at this diner 1-2 timers per month for lunch and it is consistently good. The gyros, pizzas, and salads are very good. Other sandwiches are solid ranging from good to very good. They have a bunch of other standard diner items that I have not tried but that my friends report as being quite good. The place can get really crowded right around noon but the service is quick and extremely friendly. You pay individually at the counter so try not to leave just after a large group or you'll be in line for a while. Been a regular for a few years and will definitely continue. Strongly recommended.

Greeted with a smile. Great neighborhood restaurant where they remember your face, serve the food hot, and with a smile. Seat yourself, it's like home. Plenty of items on the menu - way beyond "Greek" as identified. Love their steak and cheese sandwich and FRIES! Reasonably priced, particularly for this area.

Owned by the extended family that has Spartan's in Burke, this pleasant eatery has all the same Greek, Italian, and American offerings and the same friendly and efficient service. Full of locals and employees of nearby Ft. Belvoir on a recent weekday. The Reuben was excellent, as always. Lentil soup replaced french fries with no upcharge. A generous hot turkey open-faced sandwich with corn was only $8. This is the kind of place which will survive economic downturns and congressional outrages and keep on delivering the goods.
