Any place that has a line out the door every morning is bound to be good. Breakfast is the best here, the pancakes are huge and are delicious. You have the option to add all sorts of add ins, like butterscotch, chocolate chips, etc. if you're going for lunch or dinner and you like chicken, get the gold rush sandwich,... More

Marie's is your typical old school diner with a large southern style menu. The service was really slow, but it was packed so I'll give them a break. The crabcake was surprisingly really good. A lot better than I was expecting. And the prices are small, but the portions are large. If you're around the area and wanna fill up... More

Marie's is a La Plata institution for a reason! If you want good old fashion Southern cooking, guaranteed to satisfy the heartiest appetite, Marie's is the place to go. Don't be fooled by it's plain exterior, the line waiting outside tells the truth. I had the pork chop, over easy eggs with grits and tea for brunch. It was bone-gnawing... More

This place was better than expected. The place is always busy and there's a good reason. The food is excellent and there is more than enough choices to choose from. I brought my family and the service was above average. Friendly staff with great customer service. Highly recommend eating here if you're in the area or a local!
