Momcorn can be counted on for fresh delicious food everytime. I often do carryout here- portions are generous and the food is always delicious. Everyone here is friendly. They are also helpful if you have questions about the menu.

There aren’t too many places around Gurnee that offer a vegan menu. This place is great! The food is delicious with many options. I eat here almost every week.
