After we closed the last day of pickup for the Trolley Run, we headed over to Marios for a grinder. Great call! Sad news, after close to 4 decades of service, the owner is retiring and closing down in December, 2017. A year to say goodbye. Hurry in a get that special meatball grinder from the landmark while it is... More

The Italian recipes dating back to the early 1900's are never to be repeated. This is a one of a kind that sadly will be going away at the end of 2017 since the son's - son is retiring from this old family restaurant. Now only open from 11am to 5pm M-F. Great Value!

$6 lunch today was the half spaghetti with meat sauce that comes with garlic toast and salad. If this is the half portion I shutter to think how big the full size is! Everything was wonderful! When I'm not super hungry I love to stop in and order their salad, it is crave-worthy!

My husband and I used to go here in 1981 and 1982 during our lunch hour. Sometimes we would take the grinders to the Nelson Art Museum and eat outside. Today, we took our 19 year old son. It looks like a hole in the wall, but the food is good. Our son thought it was cute. It reminded him... More

It had been some time since I ate at Mario's, it was once one of my favorites and I ate there at least once a month. I just happened to be driving by around lunch time and the bright yellow exterior caught my eye. I was surprised at how much smaller it was from the last time I was there.... More
