“serves milk shakes the "old fashioned" way”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2011

We were driving north through Salinas on Highway 101 in a rainstorm and looking for a place to eat. We saw the In-and-Out restaurant sign and pulled off for lunch. Changed our mind when we saw Margie's Diner next door. Absolutely the right decision! Big portions of delicious food. I had the Burger Club sandwich with the companion green salad. Couldn't even finish all the sandwich. Also shared a delicious vanilla milk shake with my wife. Margie's serves milk shakes the "old fashioned" way, with the customer getting the "extra" shake in the blender -- more than enough for the two of us. Tasty alternative to fast food. Recommended for both service and the variety and quality of food.
