Congrats to Marathon Deli! I will say Fishnet had my vote. I live right around the corner from them currently, and their fries are bangin'.

Both restaurants are favorites of mine, and both are great choices to have in the community. Marathon has been there for ages, and Fishnet is new. Fishnet has excellent fish sandwiches, and I am planning on trying the Sunday brunch soon.
