Very good L*A*R*G*E breakfast

Visited with a discount coupon from staying at a neighboring hotel. Kind service, very good breakfast which is likely the largest size breakfast I have ever been served. Notice the size of the plates being served before ordering. 1 plate can realistically serve 2, or if hungry, 2 plates serve... read more

We had breakfast here while staying at the adjacent Best Western hotel. Modern diner in terms of its appearance but everything else is truly traditional. Friendly, efficient service and fantastic food that arrives in unbelievably generous portions. Highly recommended

We stopped off for lunch on our way through Paso Robles. We usually go to the Paso Robles Inn, but this was an experiment since we'd driven by Margie's in the past and our son was interested in trying it. Two of the party ordered burgers, which were rather dry, and the accompanying vegetables were carelessly cut and lacking in... More

Great food. Worth the wait in line. Older diner with nice history. Have enjoyed breakfast there several times.

This is THE place to stop at the exit off 101 in Paso Robles. A classic roadside diner with all the usual suspects for breakfast...both people and menu items. The eggs, bacon and hash browns were good, but nothing spectacular. If you want to play it safe for breakfast, you can't go wrong here.

Wow, if you are dining with someone, order one entree to share. Thankfully our hotel told us about sharing before we went there. We ordered the ham & cheese omelet and it was huge. It came with probably 2 russet size potatoes on the side and 2 large biscuits. I believe there were other choices besides the potatoes and you... More

Margie's Diner in Paso Robles CA is incredible. We've eaten here, literally, dozens of times. Always friendly, always delicious, and we always leave satisfied. Margie's is SO GOOD, I'm hesitant to let people know about it... (If you're looking for an overpriced place that you'll leave hungry.. This isn't it)

This diner adjoins the Best Western. The Adelaide Inn gave us $5-off coupons for breakfast. As others have noted, servings are huge. Even half of a breakfast platter is likely to fill you up. Not the best breakfast we've ever had, but good enough for the occasion. (The massive fruit plate was an exception--melons, grapes, strawberries, orange and grapefruit slices,... More
