As a regular the take out has especially been poor w/ wrong orders. It is very inconvenient to say the least. For one don't order soup better at the restaurant. Ask for side of sauce w/ calzone and they give a tiny tiny little cup that is used for salad dressing. Missing items etc. Order take out and it is... More

Whenever we have pizza night we go to Mario's. Throughout the years they have changed hands but never the name and still the same tasty pizza.They have a large selection of pizzas to order from and their cheese steak sub with mushroom and onions is to die for. If you want to dine in you can order a pizza or... More

We've been going to Mario's for years! The Sicilian (square pizza) is wonderful. All their dishes are pretty good in the restaurant too and portions are generous. We get take out and home delivery. Definitely give Mario's a try. Weekend nights are busy so try and call ahead.

I have lived in Forked River my whole life and I don't know why I never went here before. We had a party of 9 and went on a Friday night for my Mother's birthday. We had an absolutely delightful time! From our server Mike to the food, everything was perfect. We each ordered a different dinner from the menu... More

The food here is really good. Haven't had a bad meal yet. It's BYOB and the place gets crowded. I suggest making reservations, especially for larger parties.
