“Great Food! Reasonable Prices! Love the Pizza!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

This place reminds us of the "old-fashioned diner" we went to growing up! I mean that in a good way! NO BOOMING MUSIC! Good service. Large portions. It's so nice to avoid the chain restaurants! And I just love the veggie pizza! Whenever we drive to Farmington for dinner we always comment: WE SHOULD HAVE GONE TO MARIO'S!

“Welcome Respite to a Failed Dive Vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

After having a miserable time diving at the Bonne Terre Mine and a horrific experience at the affiliated Bed & Breakfast (1901 Depot), we felt we were out of luck when it came to finding something decent to eat. We headed over to Mario's for lunch and weren't expecting much, but we were pleasantly surprised by the warm hospitality, attentive service, and good food. We ended up with dinner portions, which were HUGE and we weren't able to finish. Nevertheless, since Mario's was the highlight of our day in Bonne Terre, we returned for dinner and ordered lighter fare. It wasn't very busy for a Sunday and we were well taken care of. We completely appreciate the staff's attention to us after feeling pretty discouraged from the rest of our daily activities.

“Very good restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2012

Mario's is located across from the Post Office in Bonne Terre. The food is very good. The service was great. My friend and I visited when it was not busy at all. I don't know how the service would be if it was busy. The portions are very large at reasonable prices. You will probably have to ask for a doggie bag like we did. Atmosphere is not much to look at, but yummy food. There is a bar so if you want a drink, it is available.
