The current owner grew up in that place. The recipes have been in place for many years.

Yes, but they don't even use most of those recipes anymore.  Even the salad has changed.  My grandmother worked there MANY years ago and I have the recipe for the "original" Mazza's salad that was used back then.  There is a BIG difference.  They no longer make their own sauce - it comes out of a large, industrial-sized can that they purchase from their wholesale supplier.  Trust me, I know.  My son works for their supplier and pulls their orders (if they have cash - no checks). 

All of their food is basically heat-n-eat now.  It's sad.  I'd love to go eat there and support a locally owned establishment but with the economy today, eating out at a restaurant is more of a luxury than ever before.  And at the prices that Mazza's charges, I expect a LOT more than a bunch of bland, heat-n-eat crap.  Might as well go to Ryan's.  (YUCK!)

Oh it is definitely time for Chef Ramsey to come in and take over the reins for a few days. That man is amazing. He has turned some of the most horrid dumps around. Maybe that is just what they need, because believe me, Gordon will tell it to the owner like it is, he has no problems with that! btw  :iloveu: Gordon Ramsey!

Tweety I am with you there I went once with my daughters and the food was cold at the buffet and it seemed like it was reheated and it took them forever to stock up the stuff that was out....I was sadly disappointed.

Bring on Gordon!!!!  I love watching him.

We have eaten there 3 times.  The 1st time was 7 years ago as we were going through MV after a horse show and the food was excellent.  The 2nd time was after we moved here and the food was still good.
But the 3rd time was a year ago and I believe the place was starting to go downhill then.  The salad was nasty, and the buffet was so-so.  We took our neighbor there after saying the food was good.  Bad move, they weren't impressed either.  We haven't been back.

I've eaten there once, and the folks would bring home some of the famous Mazza's salad on occasion.  I have just never acquired a taste for that wilted, SLIMY salad...  :vomit:

Needless to say, I was not impressed with them.

It isn't supposed to be wilted or slimy.  It only gets that way when it has been sitting around too long.  Another reason I prefer to make it myself at home. 

BTW, it was nice meeting you tonight.  I'm so sorry Forest missed your costume.

It was nice meeting you too!  I sampled the "Luv Muffins" but I think you had already left by then.  Yummmm!  Thank you!   :biggrin:

I was terribly disappointed that Forest had already left by the time I got there.  Oh well.  Two Forests in one place may have been scary.  *snicker*

I fully expected her to come flying back down there to (try to) kick my butt when people started sending her picture messages on their cell phones.  Of course someone did point out that she would have had to actually TOUCH me to do that.  I even had a spare pair of rubber gloves in my car just in case...

 :hysterical: :hysterical: :hysterical:

I must remember to thank her for being the inspiration that allowed me to take home that wondeful TROPHY.   :biggrin:

Forest had to make an early departure.  She heard about the MRSA staph virus being confirmed here in MV and had to rush home to start sealing off all of her doors and windors with plastic and duct tape.  She said something about having to dip Little Forest in bleach and iodine.  I just hope she goes easy on the little guy with that wire brush.

I would have been willing to share my can of disinfectant...  The label said it kills germs and viruses.  Yeesh.   :doh:
