Ever since the 70's Mrs. Human Vern and I have gone to Mario's in the Upper Falls. Pizza, subs, onion rings and Budweiser in a bottle. Classic meal at a classic place. A great place to have a consistently good time.

It was our first time here and we will definitely come back. The food was good with good portion. The place has an antique feel to it, which is nice. Please bring cash, the ATM costs a lot of fees.
