Re: Who remembers Mario's Pizza?

I remember the Mario's in Bardstown, since I grew up not far away in Bloomfield.

I think that location was most famous for its buffet. It was huge (for the time). My memory is a bit vague, but I believe that they did extend their buffet menu away from Italian somewhere along the way. We went there pretty frequently.

Jack closed the place in 1972 and Por Que No took the venue over lasting about 10 years. After closing Susan Seiller took it over.
I didn't know the exact dates but I found an article by Kevin Gibson that had the above information. In the 40s & 50s and probably before the alley behind Frys was a very busy place on Sunday. (No legal sales in Ky then). When I was about 7+ I walked with my grandmother down the alley on Sunday a few times.
