Mary Susan Cashio, Owner

Mary Susan Cashio has always been nothing short of the ‘Belle of the Ball’! Her saucy, outgoing personality is as contagious as she is vivacious.

A native of Vestavia Hills in Birmingham, AL, Mary Susan prides herself on her strong family bonds and traditional Italian roots. While growing up in Birmingham, the Cashio family looked forward to Sunday gatherings where ‘Grandma Angel’s’ delicious and authentic meatballs were the center of attention. 

Mary Susan is a graduate of the University of Alabama with a degree in Consumer Affairs.  Following graduation, Mary Susan moved to New York City to attend the Gemological Institute of America to pursue her fascination with precious stones. In between the grind of studying her four C’s, she quickly became inspired by the many facets of NYC. In particular she found herself drawn to the cultural influences and delicious flavors of the streets of the City. In doing so she yearned for her family’s succa sauce.

Mary Susan was therefore surprised as life threw her desired career goals a curveball; or, should it be called, a “meatball”!  Mary Susan returned home, bringing with her the unique concept Birmingham was missing: the mix-and-match menu of meatballs with surprising comfort sides, served in a welcoming, modern and lively enviroment.

It took little convincing of the rest of the Cashio gang (and finding the perfect space in Birmingham’s upbeat Lakeview area) for Cashio’s Meatball market to come to life. Mary Susan has now uncovered a family jewel of her own and serving Birmingham food she grew up loving!
