There are varying reviews on websites regarding this restaurant, but in my mind it has never disappointed. When there very recently, the chicken parm and the chop special were both excellent. The service is always good, and non-intrusive. If you can't go to "The Hill" try Mungos.

Had one of the best steak dinners ever here. A little high priced though. They seemed like they were trying to be a fancy, high dollar restaurant, but not quite pulling it off right. They got the food and the price down, but the service and atmosphere didn't keep up.

We have eaten here a few times. The food is good (pasta's and steak dishes) and the ambiance is nice, but the prices are just too high in comparison to other fine dining restaurants. There is this one waiter who acts holier than thou and tries to always talk you out of what you want to order. He won't let... More

We started going to Mungo's by using a restaurant.com voucher and haven't stopped since. We have recommended it to other family members and they are all hooked. Just ate there last night and again the food was great as usual. The bread and salad alone make it worth the trip.

This is one of the very best restaurants on the East Side of St. Louis. Sure, it's in a strip mall, but the indoor ambiance is pleasant, and the food is very good. The dishes are sophisticated, but the prices are reasonable. This is not a "destination" restaurant, but it definitely provides great food, at a good price, with excellent... More

This is a great place to eat, hidden in plain sight, but a great place to eat. They don't face the main road and their sign is mostly lost within the congestion of other signs for the strip mall they are in and due to the traffic and busy intersection where they are located, it's very easy to overlook this...

Why is this place hidden in a strip mall? You can't even see it from the main road. This place has the food and service of a quality restaurant, but it is lost to most people because of the location. Move and grow. The staff is either family or long-term employees with a strong working knowledge of the menu. It... More

In an area packed with fast food restaurants, there is a special restaurant worthy of the the St. Louis Hill neighborhood. Mungo's in Fairview Heights is located near St. Clair Square in a small strip mall. What a deceptive location. This is truly a fine restaurant. Mungo's house salad is cold, crisp, and special. My favorite steak is Beef Soto.... More
