No longer located in Salinas! So don't think to look for it because you will be out of luck! I think there is one in King City, further south, if you are set on eating at a Margie's Diner.

The place was torn down months ago and replaced with a McDonalds. No one goes to the McDonalds because it is right next to an In and Out Burger.

Food is adequate and the portions are too large. The food is typical for a coffee shop. Not very fresh or flavorful.

Not sure what happened - a few years ago, they were A-OK. I'm gonna say a lack of portion control had a lot to do with it, but it's inmaterial now. This place is closed up tighter than a tick!

This is kind of an old, run down place. It's near the hotels and near the freeway but not a good find. Stale pie and cold coffee cost $10.00....no extra charge for the bugs...terrible!

The prices are way too high for the quality of food you get. The food isn't horrible, but they need to have more resonable prices

One of my favorite restaurants, but temperature of environment is on the colder side. Self-seating and very quick and good service. The food is big portions with a slice of fruit. Serves sandwiches, such as French Dips; also noodles or burgers. Sad thing is they...More

We had dinner here. The meals were huge. The vanilla milkshake was out of this world and I had enough to fill 3 tall glasses. The waitress was friendly and cheerful and gave us fantastic service. We are visitors to the USA and this diner...More
