Why no Greek food in Beltsville/Greenbelt/Lanham?

Okay, so I've had Carribean, Indian, Mexican food in the area. Dining companion doesn't like Chinese so that's out. Why no Greek places around?!

    There's a Greek festival at the church on Cipriano Rd (between Greenbelt Rd and Good Luck Rd) a couple of times a year. Usually pretty good.

    I'll second gyros at Marathon Deli.

      Because the ethnic foods tend to follow the ethnicities of the folks who live there. Not a large Greek community in PG, though there used to be in MoCo.

        There's always Marathon, the Greek deli in College Park with good gyros. I believe that Plato's diner (also in CP) has some Greek specialties on the menu, although I can't personally vouch for them.

        In general, the best places in that area are Korean, Vietnamese (pho), and Mexican.
