“The place is a zoo!”
Reviewed 30 November 2012 via mobile

I've never quite understood the praise this place has received. The prices are average and you get better quality and better service at sunset foods without the mass of people and traffic jam in the parking lot.

“LOVE IT”
Reviewed 8 November 2012

I love the shopping carts, they come in a nice small size for when you want to dart in and get a few things. The prices are pretty good too. Love the fresh seafood and the meat counter. I really like the fact that you never have to hunt down a employee ,there is always one available to help. The bakery has some great muffins and cookies. They can get really busy on weekends so your best bet is during the week days.

Love stopping at Mariano's always find special little treats. The snack shop offers tasty meals and some awesome gelato. The place is always busy.

“Gem of a Grocery Store”
Reviewed 17 July 2012

I live quite close to the Mariano's in Vernon Hills so I frequent it regularly. We always buy the Krakus ham which is $3.78 a lb. Other stores charge at least $5.00 a pound. If you buy meat or fish, they will cook it for you while you wait and listen to the person who plays the piano. Very unique grocery experience.
