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

Everything here is authentic Greek food. It's been family owned for as long as they've been here and they have the best gyros in the area. Everything is worth the money, but to maximize your first time, get the Value Meal (gyro and fries), wash it down with a birch beer and enjoy a bowl of rice pudding. Cheap eating... More

Get in the long line at lunch and walk to a back room to get a table and eat a Greek feast. Cheap eats, dive location and so yummy. Ask for the fries extra crispy!

I love lamb. Plain and simple, I love Greek food. I went here for lunch and it was totally worth it. I forget the price, but you can get a Gyro, fries, and a drink for lunch for a reasonable price. The Gyro was frickin’ delicious. Again, I love lamb, but it was really good. The fries were salty and... More
