Description: Pongo's is a local family-owned and operated restauarant believing each dish will be made to order with the freshest ingredients. We have 8 beers on tap (4 locals) and a great wine list. Pongo creates outstanding one of a kind specials, and takes great pride in his Thai heritage. Pongo also has a background in Italian so don't be afraid when you sea Clams Linguini on our board. We are a spunky local spot that enjoys local musicians on Thursday evenings and we would love for you to come check us out.

“Not a bad place, not a great place.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

Pongo's is a hard-edged chromium style place, not quite what I had expected in a Thai restaurant and a little over-air conditioned on the day we visited. Service was satisfactory, but perfunctory. Their pad thai was excellent; the green curry not so much.
This is a perfectly ok restaurant, but I wouldn't go out of my way to return.

“Loved it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2012

We stopped by Pongo's for lunch (great value!) while at an event in the area and liked it so much, we went back for dinner a day or two later.

Delicious, authentic dishes and super friendly staff and attentive service.

My only complaint is the short beer list - would have had a beer if they had some microbrews.
