After reading reviews from various sources about this restaurant I decided to head over there since I work in Times Sq. What a great lunch decision. I never had a cuban sandwich before and lets just say I am now hooked. It is a bit greasy so once in a while is fine but overall, the counter guy was nice and service was quick for take out. It is a small place but has a nice atmosphere. Most importantly food is sooo good! Next time I am going for a plate. Yummm OOOH!

Many of my co-workers love the food here, but I'm not really a fan. It's flavorful and plentiful, but really greasy and you have to watch out for bones. There is no ambiance here, as it is meant to be a take out joint. Delivery takes more than an hour (and my office is 1/2 block away), so if you must eat here, pick up your food in person and take it away (very cramped seating). I can't really recommend this place for those of us with delicate stomachs, but if you've got a strong constitution, then by all means, go for it.

I was jonesing a cuban all week. i was told to check out the bigger brighter restaurant across the street,...but i can't resist the lure of cheap eats. If you are at the counter and all the parking lot attendants in the neighborhood are there, and they don't speak a lick of english...the food is probably good. nice crisp cuban, a bit on the small side, but tasty nevertheless. i will go back and try some of the lunch plates...if i can resist the allure of a nice tiny tasty cuban.

A very tiny space. not fancy but the food is EXCELLENT! They've been there for over 30 years and i'm not the least bit surprized, it's that good. GO! Be prepared to stand in a fast moving line, get a tray and sit in close quarters... but it's well worth the experience! ...and i don't mind the wait time on deliveries! everybody wants it!

The food is delicious but i recommend you do take-out because it gets crowded in there tiny cramped space!

I can't imagine getting take-out from Margon. The place is too hectic to think that anything will get out of the door on time. But if you go in, the line moves quickly and the food is amazing and really, really cheap. If you can get a table, you may as well take it, but it is cramped and loud. If you work nearby, just bring it back to the office. Excellent food, excellent value.

Margon has great food but poor service. I ordered food at 12PM and it took 2 hours to get here. If you can avoid ordering the food, Margon is the place to go to. Order at your own risk
