This is a local gem with great gyros and fries. It is always crowded with UMD college students and local residents. The food in consistently good and cheap eats.

Googled great food in north D.C. and this place came up. Marathon deli has the most wonderful Gyros platter! Don't let the unassuming entrance and the small store front fool you. This place had great food.

Here today for lunch and it was a pleasure as always. Food is well prepared, tastes great, and is fantastically priced. A winner.

Parking in Greenbelt is frankly a pain, and it's no different here. All parking is metered (a quarter for twenty minutes) and often nearly full, but this small family run restaurant is worth the trip. Seating is limited to nine or ten tables and the...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...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.
