We stopped in to see the new decor for lunch. It does look a little more updated. Unfortunately that was the highlight. We ordered our lunch. We waited 20 minutes at which point our waitress came back to confirm our order. Another 20 minutes later we got our meal. There was no apology or explanation given for the wait. The... More

This place is fine for a fun night out, as long as you know what you're getting into, as in it's not exactly high quality on offer. "all you can eat" should be your first clue. But knowing that, we've had good service and the meals have been OK, although a ton of salt added. However, the sausage I added... More

We ordered a salad each and it was like they broke a piece of ice burg lettuce from the bag and put it on out plate, some of it was brown and then they threw an old tomato on top, it was Gross, I do not recommend it!

I've ordered delivery from this location before and was not impressed, but decided to give them a chance for dine in. The restaurant was well maintained and very clean for the age of it, the service was exceptional and very attentive and the food was good. All in all, a good night.

We went in for lunch and we were one of 3 tables seated in our area. We ordered quickly and our bread was brought to the table immediately but without our drinks. Several minutes later a server came to clean up our bread plates and said oh nobody brought your drinks? We then waited an additional 20 minutes for someone... More

You can't go wrong with east side Marios and their unlimited salad. I prefer the garden salad, but the Caesar salad is very good as well.

All you can eat bread and salad. Kids love it! Pasta dishes are good. Quite tasty. Consider it is a chain restaurant, it does serve good food. Good value for the dollar spent.

ESM emailed me a coupon which sounded like a good deal, but when I took the wife and kids for dinner there, the waitress pointed out the fine print, and said that people come in under misdirection all the time. We stayed, we ate, and the food was decent... but when you feel tricked its hard to return.
