“Good ol time food”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

Plates are loaded with food. If you are worried about your cholesterol, don't go to Margie's - butter, grease flavor their food. No George Foreman grills used at this place. Good ol' fashioned food from the 50's and 60's!

“A HUGE AMOUNT OF FOOD!”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

If you are hungry or if you are traveling with ravenous teenagers....don't hesitate to stop at Margie's Diner which is anchored by a Best Western Plus Hotel just off of 101. We were shocked and awed by the huge oval platter filled with enough food for three people (with some left over) The atmosphere is dated but clean and the booths are filled with locals. Honestly...it's been a long while since I've seen such a load of food on a platter! Yikes!

“Huge proportions”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Good food, huge servings. Be warned, if the item has Gravy on it, it's a LOT of gravy. It's clean, bright and plenty of parking.

“Huge Portions, Heavenly Meals.”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

Even the Seniors menu portions are gigantic, and the food is just amazing. On my most recent trip I ate both breakfast and dinner there, and was delighted with both. I had a traditional egg breakfast and substituted fruit for the potatoes....I couldn't finish it! And the shake I had with dinner....well that was just divine. I'm glad I only had to walk next door to my hotel....I needed a nap after each meal. NICE WORK, MARGIE!
