“Good Greek Food but place needs updating”
Reviewed 4 May 2013

Really nice Greek food at very reasonable prices. However, the place looks run down and the atmosphere is depressing. You order at the couter and the food is brought out when it is prpeared. You have to get your own drinks (like many chain reataurants). This place has the potential to be much moe upscale, but that would require some investment.

“Great Food, Strange Place”
Reviewed 8 April 2013

Marathon is a greek restaurant located close to downtown Greenville. I have had the non-vegetarian sampler multiple times and have never been disappointed with the food. The only bad thing about this place is the building and decorations are so outdated and run down. The set up is strange, and when you walk through the front door for the first time, you have to realize this is a order at the counter in the back and then sit wherever you choose kind of restaurant. There is no wait staff despite it's significant amount of seating. Also, the bar looks as though it hasn't been operating for at least 10 years. So if you want to great greek food that is set up kind of like a take-out restaurant, then by all means, this is the place for you!

“Great food geez cleanup”
Reviewed 24 March 2013

I was greeted by dead plants and dirty carpets. My suggestion is to do some DEEP cleaning inside and out. However the food was great! I suggest putting the side salad in a bowl rather than on my dinner plate. Oh and one plant on the stump is sufficient.

“Great place for a gyros!”
Reviewed 9 January 2013 via mobile

Great hidden gem of a Greek Family style restaurant. The customers range from ECU student, Police Officers, Firemen and your normal local like us A good group of customers. This place is high class but in the middle. Great for sub or gyro's at a excellent price.
