Same old same old, the ragu out of a jar is better.

“Great Take Out Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2010

Mario's Italian Restaurant is in a strip mall behind the Food Lion in Kings Charter. It has been at that location for well over 18 years. You don't last that long in the restaurant business unless you are dishing out good food. On our last visit I chose the pasta with clam sauce. The pasta was cooked perfectly! My wife chose the Vodka penne pasta. Again, a great dish cooked perfectly. The server, while very young, was pleasant and personable.

The only problem with eating at Mario's is the decor. Uncomfortable booths with numbers on the wall to mark the tables (we sat at #13) are about it. You know you are in a restaurant in a strip mall. Very poor decorations, but very good food.

Last week I ordered their 2 one topping pizza's for $18. They were both GREAT and would beat anything you can find from a national chain. From now on I think I will just grab one of their great meals and take it home. But, if you don't mind the strip mall ambiance, dine in.
