A Lucky Find - Super Clam Chowder

We stumbled upon Mongo's looking for Clam Chowder because downtown Pismo Beach was just to crowded. The waitress said that the Clam Chowder was great and she was right. So was everything else we ordered. We were there at a quiet time but I'm betting that it does get loud as ther is evidence of... read more

I was in visiting in town and had no place to go for Thanksgiving. Was driving down Grand Ave. and saw their door open with hardly anyone in the parking lot. Had a couple of great Bloody Mary's and a yummy Ruben Sandwich. Rescued me in my time of need!

This place was a lot of fun. Lots of character and the food was good. I would go here again for food and beer. Perhaps not a place for small children. The staff were very friendly. Liked this place a lot.

Mongo's is a neighborhood kind of place that makes you feel welcome as soon as you step inside. It wasn't busy the day I was there but I imagine the staff would be just as great if they had been busy. I had a great pastrami sandwich, hand delivered by the chef. The waitress/bartender was friendly but not intrusive. There's... More

Best of the last seven tenants in this huge restaurant location. Finally someone got the groove down for Grover Beach here many other tried in the past 20 years and failed. Great place to meet for afternoon beers night time dancing. I think the addition of the casino has made this stick in business as before no one did that.... More

Good bartenders, good drinks, varied crowd. Right next to a casino, if poker's your thing. Only complaint: get some new equipment for your pool table!!!

If you are from the local area then you know that there is not many places to go that have a regular bar atmosphere. Mongo's is most filled with locals, or people coming off the beach on the weekends, but is a decent place to go have some drinks, casual good food, and watch some sports, the staff is friendly...
