Whenever I come back to the Buffalo area my first stop is John & Mary's for a "royal sub". Cappicola, Italian sausage, provolone cheese on a fresh sub roll. Great food at a good price.

This establishment is run by the Son of the original owner and meets the family tradition. Their hot (Cooked) subs are great. Their most famous is the Royal, sausage, cappicoli, salami lettuce and tomato w/ oil and/or mayo. The original John and Mary's on Harlem Road, where it all started was a high school hang out. That's where I had... More

SUBS: John & Mary's original, back in the 1950's, was phenomenal. Even into the 60's and through the 90's it was great. I think the younger generation took over, and it's gone downhill (Lancaster location; don't know about the others). The sub rolls are still the best (I think), but they are sooo stingy with meats & cheese. This has... More

Typical WNY sub place. Wether it is for subs, wings, from the fryer or ice cream (Seasonal) this long family owned business is a good choice for food. Pizza in my opinion is a little lackluster. Also from time to time anything with capicola can be a dicey. But overall a good place to eat otherwise.

I've been going since I was a kid. To me, every time I return to buffalo I have to make a stop for a sub. Their subs are amazing, especially chicken finger. One bite and I am transported back to my childhood. You could ask me about the pizza and wings... But I've never had them. John & Mary's is... More

It was pizza special day $9.99 for a large one topping compared to $12.50. First thing my husband said upon trying it was it tasted like a frozen pizza. After we were done my daugter said even the fries were bad, not chrispy, not salty and soggy. We have lived in the neighborhood for 22 years and have not eaten... More

I went to John & Mary's for old memories sake. It was a disappointment. The prices were too high for what we got. The quality of the subs have gone downhill.
