Burke Reviews

Having grown up in Burke I feel I'm uniquely qualified to dish out the goods on the all the great places to score some grub. Visitors looking for the best food in the area will suffer from analysis paralysis. Are you a fan of Mexican food? Anita's and El Pueblo to the rescue! Need some Greek or Italian to finish the night? Spartan's and Malek's are on it! Oh, you're looking for Lebanese? You've found the Cedar Café!

Practically any style or ethnicity is represented in the cuisine in Burke. Ask a local for any suggestions as they are myriad!
Review Burke
I like living in Burke. It provides me with great schooling opportunities and it allows me to be close to D.C. so I can be an active member of this country. I only wish there was something more to do at night or over the weekend. I have to drive somewhere at least 20 minutes away for me to have a break from my schooling. Overall I love where I live, it is a great place for me to grow up and a great place for me to figure out who I am.
I love our neighborhood in Burke. I live in a SFH and the families around us have been here either since the houses were built or there are new families that have kids my kids ages. The school system here is wonderful and coming from Montgomery County, MD I love it much more here.
