Mario the Baker (North Miami)

Posted on December 2nd, 2008 · Italian North Miami Pizza

*****  Mario the Baker, 13695 West Dixie Highway, North Miami, Florida 33161 (305) 891-7641.

Let’s get started…this writeup is about Mario the Baker a Southern Italian Red Sauce joint located in North Miami…which first opened its doors in 1969.

If you go to Mario’s website you will find menu details…you will also “learn” that in addition to the North Miami location there are something like 11 other Mario the Baker joints in South Florida. The site will also give you “the history” of Mario the Baker with details of “who started what…and who sold what to whom and when.”

Now…let’s make this real simple. The Mario the Baker in North Miami is an absolutely great place for pizzas, pastas, subs, meat/chicken entrees. Nothing fancy…big portions…reasonable prices…very pleasant wait-staff.

To date, I  haven’t tried any of the other Mario the Baker locations…so for right now it is “up in the air” as to whether or not they are as good, better, or worse than the original. A few of them are on my “list to do”…so I’ll update you guys as needed.

If you live  in North Miami, the odds say that you already knew about Mario the Baker long before reading this writeup. Anyway…Mario the Baker is open Sunday-Thursday 11am-10pm and Friday-Saturday 11am-11pm.

    A Mario The Baker recently opened in Boca. Great meatball sub and pizza. Just thought you’d like to know.

    I went to a Mario the baker location in coconut creek a couple years ago. I don’t believe it’s even open anymore. I got the veal parm and it was the worst I ever had. It was new year’s eve the next day and I was throwing up all day, literally. I would never recommend this restaurant.

    I can’t let this one slide: the ‘Mario The Bakers’ on Dixie in North Miami is awful AND rude. For convenience sake, I’ve ordered their take-out pizza a dozen times and for this old New Yorker, it is VERY mediocre. You can have it cooked any way you want so long as it’s their way and pasty white. Once, the manager yelled at me because I dared wanted my pizza done a bit more. WTF?!? My few dining-in experiences, I get the ‘Table Turn-Over Hustle’. I swear the manicotti and baked ziti’s are frozen fodder or pre-made. So bad I felt compelled to write this.
