I have eaten at Mary's many times. They definitely get great word-of-mouth around town. Some of the food is excellent like the Country Fried Steak, Veg Beef Soup. Some not so good like the taste of the meatloaf and the dumplings with canned chicken. The servers are awesome....prompt and attentive. The downer is that the owner puts so much pressure... More

We happened upon Mary's Cafe as we looked for a place for lunch. The food was very good, especially the homemade vegetable soup. This is a local spot, not a chain restaurant. It's my kind of place.

I enjoy lunch at Mary's at least once a week. The homemade vegetable soup, pot roast, and country style steak are my top picks. You can't go wrong with their club or cheeseburger either. A meat, two veggies, bread and drink is 9 bucks out the door. It's more than I can eat. Great service and great food.

What a great café! Awesome Country style home cooking. There are even a few Asian dishes as well. The staff there is amazing. I got Country fried steak which was very good and the fried squash was excellent. I would definitely go back again!

This place is the best!!! They are always welcoming and have a very friendly staff. The food is so great and you don't have to wait long either. It is a nice family place to eat anytime of the day. We really love this place!

Stopped here because I wanted a place to eat with local feel. Great place! BTW, it's on Firetower Road. While they didn't have a hot ham and cheese sandwich on the menu, they created one for me. Now that's service! Fries were fresh and outstanding. Customer service is wonderful; staff constantly checking to make sure I was was ok. Can't... More

Green beans were great, cornbread very dry.. disappointing.. but I... More

Was recommended to eat here by our doctor. My wife and I enjoyed the home-cooked food at a reasonable price. On the other hand, the server made us nervous. Before we were able to sit down, she approached us asking what we wanted to drink. Felt rushed. She seemed like a nervous cat bolting across the room back and forth... More

This is the second time we've stopped here for lunch when traveling. Both times we've had a great basic lunch. The food comes out very quickly and it is very good. One of the best parts is watching the servers. They only know quick, and dart around without stopping, while being very pleasant and attentive. Facilities are clean and neat.

Passing through on 77 south. Mary's is only 5 minutes off the highway in an industrial park area. Yes, skip the Cracker Barrel chain and eat here. Super casual, locals eat here. The prices are good. Sweet tea lovin' Dan enjoyed his chicken and dumplings with a side of green beans and rice with gravy (white rice, canned gravy). Chicken... More
