You Said It: Mary's Pizza Shack is the Place to Take the Kids

The pizza/pasta red-sauce joint offers a reasonably priced kids menu, alongside adult-friendly fare

The Sonoma Valley is home to a lot of kids, and a lot of dining establishments – but it's rare to find a restaurant that merges both sets of taste buds completely. : Many adult-centric restaurants will accommodate children readily, but a real kids menu – good luck.

So, is a real exception in town, and no doubt why our readers named to take the kids in Sonoma.

The family-run, locally founded chain offers one of the most flexible dining selections for kids. The boisterous (read, family friendly) downtown location offers eat-in or take-out options, including online ordering if you're particularly frazzled.

Once you're there, kids can choose from a real kids menu. The budget friendly options range from $3.50 to $7, and include classic youth-centric grub such as a 'Bambino Cheese Pizza' or 'Nonny's Pasta' – a choose your own adventure style pasta and sauce, topped off with garlic bread.

Families choose from the varied adult-friendly items. The menu boasts: "Each item is made to order and there are no heat lamps, frozen dough or canned sauces."

Are you a fan of Mary's? What's your favorite dish on the menu? Let us know in the comments section.

Next week, we'll ask the readers for their favorite place to celebrate St. Paddy's Day. Contest starts Monday morning.

Except, no one has any extra cash for dinner after Obama's $5 gas!

Been taking myself kids and now grandkids to Mary's. It's a family owned and the philosophy is felt whenever to go through their doors. When my away kids come home for a visit it wil always include a visit to MARY'S. Love the food and the people who serve you. Love Mary's Large Salad with Mary's own italian dressing and her Meatballs ummmmmmmm.
