It is officially Summer! Especialy when you can walk up and wait in line here! Haven't been here in years but think abouit it all the time as I live so far west. So good, So Cold! I am going to make it a point to try as many Flavors as I can while the weather is nice.

I still have yet to go here. I worked at Superior Nut and Candy as the front Receptionist and on a hot summer day we would get a free sample pineapple or lemon flavor They were a customer of ours they would buy gummy bears for their italian ice. I miss that. a great place to work at.

Call me crazy but I love Mario's Italian Lemonade more than ice cream. I've been going here since I was a kid and now I go with my wife. It is a really refreshing treat on a hot summer day. There is always a line but it doesn't take long at all. Don't go if you don't know how to parallel park because parking is limited and tight in the neighborhood. It doesn't matter what flavor(s) you get they are all good. My favorite part of the slushy lemonades are the lemon zests in them. They are kind of chewy and the sour flavor complements the sweetness of the flavor you choose. Going here is a true Chicago tradition.

I will always love this place; a fond memory from my childhood, and a pilgrimage distination every summer (at least once a year). I honestly have not gotten any other lemondade flavor besides lemon in 42 years, but I've never even been curious. And if you've only ever had lupini beans from a jar, you have no idea how they are really supposed to taste.

Why does Mario's have so little reviews? Officially opened for the season, people really need to check out this Little Italy treat. They have classic flavors in addition to some strawberry and watermelon hybrids. We use to go here after school and on lazy summer nights. Order a small of yourself or a large to share, you won't be disappointed!
