Mario's Pizza on Chicago Ave MPLS

  • 1

I'd like to find the owner of the former Mario's Pizza that was on 5200 Chicago Ave in MPLS.

I understand there was a fire at the location around 2005. The internet provides very little information. The building is owned by a couple that live in St. Paul.

Is there another Mario's or better yet does anyone have their pizza recipe? I used to have a personal size pizza three times a week back in the 80's and I need one now, please.

  1. Someone has been slowly and quietly restoring the interior of Mario's over the past several years. I peered in thru the front window today and it looks as it did the last time I bought a pizza there over 6 years ago, with the exception that there is no food. The ceiling fan was spinning and there is a neon sign hanging in the window ready to be turned on. It would be great to have this neighborhood gem back in business.
