Now don't get me wrong I used to love this place (its been over 15 years) but it has really gone down hill in the appearance and I am assuming code compliance/health department issues. The place is old and tired, the only new thing I saw was the benches outside. The place needs a total remodel and new equipment. They... More

Honestly, it's a true hole in the wall, but that's what makes it great. The service is a bit rough at times, but the food makes it worth it. Definitely try the lefty special!

I visited Mario's about 6 years ago with a friend. Well I was back in town and decided to visit again. I was not disappointed. In fact it was even better than I remembered. Really good Philly steak and cheese. Actually I would say it was the best I have ever had. I was a bit hesitant to have the... More

I have been going to Mario's since 1970. Upon my return from Vietnam that year I would visit my Dad who worked in the old IBM building. We would go to Mario's for pizza. That was when I first met Joe and Lefty. Over the years I would occasionally go there and it really hadn't changed much except for the... More

When on a Saturday night my wife and I took a friend who live not far from there but never heard of it. We were both embarrassed by how bad the pizza was. The guy making the pizzas was not friendly and kind of rude. This place used to rock I've been going to it for 40-plus years. All I... More

Just like everybody else, it is Old School! If you grew up in Northern Virginia, this is a favorite....definitely mine for the past 30 years. Square pizzas...sauce is sweet & generous on toppings. Subs are also great. Open late on weekends for those late night cravings! Love love love!

This is a throwback and is great for a huge tasty slice. Not fancy, just good pizza. We have been going here for 30 years, first when we lived in Arlington, now when we visit.

I grew up near Mario's and have been going here for the Lefty's steak & cheese for the last 45 years. It was the fresh sliced ribeye that made this the best steak & cheese I've ever eaten. I went there yesterday for a Lefty's Special made by Lefty himself and sadly the new owners have decided to cut costs... More

This is not a place to get a salad. Two things that you can or should order, steak and cheese and or slices of pizza, order to the left for steak and cheese and to the right for pizza. Pizza with sausage is the way to go. If you are lucky Joe will be working the pizza and Lefty on... More
