Village Voice's Description

This Harlem diner offers everything you'd expect from a diner, and while the pancakes and eggs are very good, they're not the reason to come here. Neither is a quick bite. Margie's Red Rose Diner specializes in soul food and a familial atmosphere. The wait might be long, and the service a bit haphazard, but it's all very good natured and the food is better. From soul food staples like cheese grits, fried or smothered pork chops, and fried chicken to sides of cornbread, collards, baked macaroni, and candied yams to more unusual offerings like salmon cakes and lemonade pie, the food is hearty and fresh--and cheap. Run by husband-and-wife team Mike and Koko, the narrow dining room has fewer than ten tables draped in red cloth, and low lighting. It's a place to sit, talk, eat, get cozy, and then lean back and digest. --Diana Clarke

    Much than pretty good: excellent!

  • Ms. Dee B. on 10/30/10

    One of Harlem's last standing hole in the wall greasy spoon spots that offers home cooking and is off the beaten path! Looking for authenticity? It's at Margie's!

  • Harlem A. on 07/06/13

    This is old school Harlem. No frills. No ordering Chicken & Waffles, cuz even that is trendy here. All day breakfast items draw them from blocks or countries away! This place will impress the jaded.

  • Joarvonia S. on 10/23/11
