Mario’s is Super

The Ghostwriter recently got to eat at Mario’s Restaurant located at 223 Groton Road in Westford. Though ‘restaurant’ is in the name, Mario’s can be classified as a diner which serves many breakfast and lunch dishes that appeal to everyone and allows the whole family to enjoy something they like here.

We arrived at the restaurant around 11:00 a.m., when it was not too busy and we were able to sit wherever we wanted. With music playing in the background and the chatter of customers, the overall milieu of the place was very pleasant and family friendly. Even the walls were decorated with pictures.

Our waitress came immediately asking for our order of drinks and was swift at getting them. While she was nice at first, when she came to get our order for our meal, she became a little impatient when we asked for a little more time to decide. After knowing what we all wanted, she was also quick to say no to a side order to one of the dishes and wasn’t apologetic.

The food that was served was appetizing and the portions were filling. The service was fast and we didn’t have to wait for long to get our meal.

First, we tried a belgian waffle topped with blueberries and whipped cream. The waffle was soft and easy to eat and the berries were fresh and sweet. The size was perfect, making one waffle enough to satisfy.

Next, we ordered a blueberry muffin and asked the waiter to toast it, which was a good idea. This way there was a crisp texture and the bread was warm. The muffin was cut in half and was fairly large, so it was rather filling.

We then got a veggie omelet, which was served with toast and home fries. The omelet had a variety of vegetables, including green and red peppers, onions, mushrooms, and tomatoes. The omelet was topped with cheese.

Another dish was a mexican omelet, also served with a side of toast and home fries. It consisted of onion and pepper and topped with cheese and salsa.

We thoroughly enjoyed both of the omelets, especially the home fries that came with them. The home fries were warm and crispy, and had a nice taste to them. I recommend getting them alongside your meal.

Overall, the restaurant had great food and I enjoyed eating there. The service could be improved, however I rate it four out of five stars. Mario’s Restaurant is open Tuesday through Saturday from 6:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and Sunday from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. It is closed on Monday.
