Sitting on the corner of the Springfield Plaza shopping center just down the road from the mixing bowl, you will find one of Springfield’s most popular places to grab a bite to eat at all hours of the day. Malek’s Pizza Palace,
The owners have been serving pizza to the local community since 1981. They truly care about the customers, a tradition started back in the early days of the business where Joseph and Joanne Malek used to re-open the kitchen after the restaurant closed to feed hungry patrons. Today Jonathan Malek follows in his parents customer service oriented footsteps, serving local law enforcement, rescue workers and happy customers 7 days a week at all hours. (Malek’s is a hot light night option open til 3am on weekdays and 4am on weekends!)
Malek’s is a family business and a great small business to support in an era where chain restaurants are popping up on every corner in Northern Virginia. Their food, atmosphere and great customer service speaks for itself, and it is no wonder you will find the place crowded with people coming from miles around just to enjoy this classic spot.
Don’t let the name fool you. Pizza is not their only item (although their spaghetti & gyro pizzas are known across the DC Metro area). They serve up salads, subs, sandwiches and wraps in a variety of styles from Mediterranean to Italian to American classics (Full Menu).
We know Malek’s and their catering options well at the Nellis Group. We host an annual Thank You Luncheon for the great community at Immanuel Bible Church and Immanuel Christian School and we provide the teachers with a great catered lunch from Malek’s that gets rave reviews. Aside from the delicious menu choices, our company loves to support Malek’s because they have a similar commitment to charity, donating 25% of their sales to local and global charities on the final Monday of each month.
Malek’s is the perfect spot to meet your Nellis Group Realtor on the weekend before you take a Virginia House Tour as you look for your next home. You can view a few of our featured properties in Springfield at the bottom of this post.
