Stopped in hoping to get a quick lunch and it was VERY quick. Greek salads, sandwiches, gyros, etc - we had a falafel wrap and chicken gyro. The falafel was different than we're used to, more of a crumbly paste with whole chickpeas... it was ok. The chicken gyro was good. They have good coffee here as well.

Spartan Grill is my local stop for good Greek food with terrific service. Long a staple in Portland, the restaurant has changed hands lately but still serves up a great breakfast sandwich and lunch specials. There's not much room to eat indoors but sidewalk dining is available in the summer. Stop in and grab a Greek specialty and you won't... More

I rarely post reviews but the food I just had here today was so bad, I had to post this one. I had the lamb gyros with a side order of frees. The gyros I've had in the past, in NY and Chicago, were thin strips carved off a big hunk of marinated lamb on a vertical spit. The lamb... More

I'm very sorry for your review of our place, i just wish you had had the time to come and talk to me about your experience before posting a scathing slam. I find that actually trying to communicate face to face with someone about their experience is a better forum than a one sided blast. Regarding your experiences in NY... More

This is a great place to get a good coffee. The breakfast burritos are a staple for me. The gyros and other Greek food are very good. The owner is a great guy who has paid for and put up what he calls Buttlers on poles around Monument Square. These are little round containers for used cigarettes.

Just wow! This place just screams Portland. Cute little family owned cafe grill with AMAZING food for the price. Now I only tried it once but when I ordered the food it came out to my surprise to be enough to take back to my office with me! You can taste the fresh meats and veggies with every bite. The...

Just finished a perfect breakfast burrito while sitting at an outdoor table on a perfect day in Portland, Maine. Delivered to the table by the proprietor of Spartan Grill, and cooked with care by him, it was delicious. Now I am drinking a cup of Coffee By Design Coffee. I've eaten here before, and enjoyed the lamb gyro, too. A... More

So the "Nutcracker" was in a half hour and I was starving. A quick trip up to Monument Square offered a wide range of flashy settings and this three-table hole-in-the-wall. A quick glance at the Spartan menu encouraged me to experiment: falafel, veggie & hummus, greek sausage. The owner took our order of two Lamb Giros and threw the "burger... More
