The best Local Resturant Ever

I love this quaint little place. The food is excellent. The wait staff is always good. I love the spaghetti and Italian Salad. But don't stop there the menu is full. Priced at excellent prices.

The porch is delightful for outdoor dining when the weather is cool(er) and breezy. Friendly family style service.

Monjunis was an easy choice for lunch as one of our group hates seafood and vetoed anything "Louisiana" style. We were headed to a local brewery bar afterwards so location and price were our primary motivation. The service was friendly, decor was a bit kitchy, but the portions were large (we all had leftovers) and everyone was satisfied. My only... More

Great homemade authentic Italian food, excellent service, and a dog-friendly covered outdoor patio. Very large portions. Fresh shrimp salad was terrific with enough left for another full meal.

We ate lunch at the original location on Louisiana Avenue and that is the way to go, as their lunch specials come with Italian salad and reduced size entrées. Food is always great and we are never disappointed. Lasagna and muffuletta sandwiches are our usual and did not disappoint us.

I tried Monjunis on Louisiana St while waiting for an appointment at the government office. It is a nicely decorated place and crowded but the lunch crowd were finishing up to leave. I opted to dine outdoors on the patio where seating was openly available. I waited a while for service to arrive and almost 5 - 10 minutes before... More

Visited this restaurant as a recommendation from a local and it turned out to be a great choice. Their sauce is definitely tasty provided that you don't mind a slightly sweet tomato sauce. The twice-baked lasagna was phenomenal!

My wife & I were driving thru and decided to get some Italian food. The spaghetti with sauce was great, the muffalatta (sp) was unbelievable. Service was ok. BUT the ICE machine in the dining room was very noisy and distracting even aggravating, and came close to running the meal
