UPDATE: Bayonne’s Mario’s Pizza Shuts Down

Marios closes - RESIZEOriginal Review: 04/06/13
PIZZA SNOB RATING ****Near Perfection

On a recent trip back home, The Pizza Snob came across a locked door and handmade sign offering a pizza setup for lease. It looks like Mario’s Pizza is no more. I was glad to meet the owner last year and wish him the best in the future. He made a pretty good pie. With a pizza joint on nearly every corner, Bayonne is a tough place to survive in the pizza business—a fact that Spike TVs Hungry Investors failed to mention on their recent visit there.

Addendum: Often I am unable to get historical background about the pizza places I visit. Since I left Bayonne in 1980, such was the case with Mario’s. I have now learned from my friends on the You Know You Grew Up in Bayonne When …. Facebook page that Mario’s opened in the 80’s and was sold to the recent owner about two years ago.
