I went to lunch there with my friend/coworker today. I have actually eaten at this place a few times, but today has completely ruined me ever going back. It took them a while to bring our food to us, which has never happened before. When...More

Good portions, great food and a fair price. We really liked it! We had the mixed grill platter and grilled veggies and plantains. Everything was fresh and we'll prepared.

Mario's is one of my favorite restaurants in the crowded niche of Mexican and Latin American venues. Mario, the owner, is always present. This, I think, ensures that the food and service will always be good.

Are at Mario's again last night. Had the pollo con hongos--chicken with mushrooms in a rich cream sauce--and it was fabulous as always. The staff is completely attentive!! A must-visit local restaurant to experience Salvadoran fare.

Great restaurant - really big on the inside. They serve a combination of mexican and salvadoran food. I chose mexican, but my husband had a salvadoran dish that was also excellent. Service was fast and friendly.
