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.

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!

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
