As a New Yorker and frequent Chinatown patron, I am a dumpling connoisseur (and some might say snob). I always jump at the chance to try dumplings in every town/city I visit. These did not disappoint. We got a quick order for a snack and...More

It is true, the menu is very small. But if you come here, get the fried dumplings! I got both the sesame noodles and dumplings. The sesame noodles weren't really my thing, I didn't realize how strong the peanut sauce would be. However, the dumplings...More

I have been a patron since the hole in the wall location. Simple good food at a low cost. Noodles and dumplings are always there to deliver that great taste.

Awesome dumplings and sweet and sour spicy noodles! We have loved and enjoyed these items for over 8 years! When we return to Charlottesville, VA this is a must visit!

The dumplings are great - you get 6 to an order and they are cheap! The sesame noodles with the peanut sauce are also great. 3 locations - downtown, 29N behind Chili's and the Corner.

Hands down, BEST dumplings around. Anytime I make the trip over to Charlottesville, I must stop at Marco & Lucas! Absolutely delicious! The sauce is where it's at! Have also tried both types of noodles, and they are good as well!

Wow - let me start by saying that this was my first trip here, and it will be the first of many more to come. I took my husband to lunch here yesterday and we each had an order of the dumplings (each order comes...More

My review will contradict nearly everyone else's on this site. And it was because of such positivity that I went, but it was almost as if my dumplings were previously frozen then wok-ed to hot. I say that, as they resembled entirely some frozen varieties...More
