You don't have to be staying at the nearby reasonably priced Hampton Inn to enjoy this great place ! Limited menu of great items, I had the dumplings, cold noodles with peanut sauce and a pork bun for ten bucks! so tasty I want to go back for more. A super interesting decor for those who are dining in.

Real simple, Marco & Lucas had the best dumplings we ever had!!! Quick, quirky, and cheap! Super simple menu, super fast, no thrills, and great dumplings. I wish they were here in CT!!!

Fantastic dumplings, yummy sesame noodles. We got several orders of dumplings, and then got some more, and then decided to try the spicy noodles. All amazing, and cheap.

We really enjoyed our lunch here. The dumplings were delicious and my husband enjoyed his spicy noodles. I loved the sesame noodles and wish I could find them at home. If you're looking for a quick, inexpensive lunch this is the place to go.

My dad and my sister decided to give this place a try. They enjoyed the dumplings, although they were pretty small. The sesame noodles and the spicy noodles, though, were not as memorable. At average prices, there are definitely worse places to go to.

Long line, but fast service. There are seats in the main area, and more located in back, behind the kitchen. Ordered the dumplings, both noodles, and the steamed pork bun. The dumplings were great - tasty, small, fried, and cheap! I could easily eat two orders by myself. I was not impressed by anything else. The sesame noodles had a... More

This is a fantastic fast food place because the dumplings taste like they are home-made (which they probably are) and at the same time are very cheap: 3.50$ for 6 of them.

Marco and Lucas have two locations one downtown on one on Rt 29 North behind Chili's nothing beats their freshly made dumplings or noodles. Menu is super basic, prices are cheap and the food is great
