Mungo's is a local treat

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.

We were coming home from a family reunion & decided to spend the night in St. Louis. We would thought that we would find a nice restaurant with a good motel close by. We looked at several nice restaurants on Yelp Urban Spoon and Trip Advisor and finally decided on Mungos. We drove to where it said that Mungos was,... More

Mungo's has recently relocated to Central Park Drive in O'Fallon, Illinois. Their new location has ample parking and easy to find. The interior is well partitioned to allow folks to carry on conversations without annoying cross talk. The food was excellent! The salad with their own house dressing was outstanding accompanied with their hot fresh baked Italian bread. The Veal... More

So glad they have reopened!! I took an out of town friend there and she can't wait to go back. The salads are amazing!! You can't go there and not have a salad. We had Beef Tony and Beef Sotto. They both melted in your mouth! You could cut them with a butter knife! You can't go wrong with anything... More

Had dinner here this evening for the first time. What a great surprise in the metro east! The feast began with salads...one house & one spinach. OUTSTANDING! That dressing is lightly sweet and fulfilling...just the right amount. My wife had the Chicken Mudiga and I had a Chicken w lemon, garlic butter and a twice-baked potato. Again....Wow! Very nice.

The new location is beautiful. So modern and clean. It's definitely a must see. The food is incredible! The beef Tony will melt in your mouth. The servers are so nice and attentive. I recommend this restaurant to everyone that lives in Illinois.

Mungos is our staple restaurant. All the pastas are great, chicken mudiga is excellent, fresh bread, and the best salads. Jarel provides wonderful service to make it an enjoyable dinner.

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.
