I've been eating at Marathon for over 20 years. The food is consistently good, prices are reasonable, and service is average. It's the only true Greek option in Greenville, which keeps me coming back. Sometimes the counter service seems a little hostile, but table/wait staff...More

The restaurant isn't much to look at, but the food was good. We got take out and the service was good. The cashier was very friendly. The prices are reasonable as well.

A simple place, but decent. I had a gyro sandwich and that was a good dish for lunch. The pita bread is very nice and the meat goes well with the garlic sauce.

Good, quality Greek food, especially the chicken and lamb kabobs. A little pricey, but worth it. The food is better than the atmosphere.

I was told they have awesome gyros but discovered the meat was dry with no taste as if it had been in the freezer for a year. But I've heard their Philly cheesesteak is pretty good. I hope to find a good gyro in Greenville,...More

Being close to "uptown" Greenville and a short walk from ECU, this place likely draws in enough business--which is perhaps why they have not spent money on updating. It looks like the last update was 1972. It needs updating of the bathrooms, carpets, and walls....More
