We stopped by Marathon Deli as we passed through town and stopped to take my college freshman son to lunch. It's a small deli that specializes in Greek food. The food was very good. We had the gyro platter and the chicken gyro special. Both were very good, massive amounts of food, and well seasoned. I was a little disappointed... More

Went here for lunch two days in a row because it was quite good. The gyro platters were very good and large enough for two, free drink refills (although you have to ask), and the service was excellent (the cashier was super nice and the owner (?) checked in on us). I'd definitely go back.

Really small place with limited seating, but the food is really good. The gyro platter is enough for two to share, or to take home a decent sized portion. Lots of great gyro meat and it's delicious, although I would have liked a few more pieces of pita. Good fries and very tasty salad, too. They have all kinds of... More

We enjoyed this very small, hard to find parking and in need of a remodel establishment. We are somewhat frugal when we eat out and this place attracted us with the reviews on yelp. Each of us had the gyro platter with fries. My wife and enjoyed our meals, the gyros were not the best we ever had, those would... More

Marathon is a family tradition; I've been going there since 1979. It's a little hole-in-the-wall place with parking out front. Outstanding gyros, but don't miss the seasoned fries. Also great souvlaki. Worth a look if you're near the University of Maryland.

I love this place! The food is consistently delicious. The place is small but the service is fast. A favorite of the UM crowd. The Gyros are the best. And the French Fries can't be beat.

I've been here a couple of times over the last few years. Each time the staff is super friendly and the food is delicious. Great Gyros!

I often order the GYRO platter in lamb for the two of us for dinner. It is so generous and large and you can even ask for a little more salad. Way too much for one person. Try the baklava too

It's a college dump. It's narrow place with a counter and a few tables in the back. It feels dirty and reviewer mentioned a cockroach!!!! I'm sure the college gets get food to go and don't even notice. I went with a friend who always orders the souvlaki and loves it. I tried the loukanika which is sausage in tomato... More

Decided to try this restaurant based on reviews and was glad I did. The establishment is adjacent to University of Maryland and gets rather busy at lunch. You are greeted at the door by Voula, one of the owners. Once your order is placed, you sit in the small but comfortable table area and it is brought to you. My... More
