We have had Mugavero's before, so we thought of them when we were looking for someone to cater a graduation party. We chose them and everyone was really happy. We had the fried chicken, the beef and the rib tips, along with mostaccioli and the au gratin potatoes, as well as salads. Pick-up or delivery only, well worth it!

Best ribs around! And the fried chicken is great too! We have been going to Mug's for years and have tried other rib places around. We always come back. We recently tried the fried chicken and were amazed how light and non-greasy it was. The pizza is our in-laws' favorite because of the generous and tasty cheese.

Mug's has the very best pizza you'll find anywhere. Fantastic chicken. Great pasta. Unbelievable beef sandwiches Their food is priced right. They can get a bit busy on a Saturday night, so plan for it. We've had them cater parties in past and they do it right. We won't order pizza from anywhere else.

We always get our ribs from Mug's from the Arlington Heights location which is on Rand Rd. North of the Fedx store. This is a little place that is open until 3 or 4 AM abd has the absolute best ribs in Chicagoland. It is take out only which is probably good since your hands a face will be covered... More

Just about the best ribs in town, and the potatoes au gratin are to die for - literally. Have never had the pizza, which they are noted for, but the lasagna - homemade - is also first rate and worth the money. Someone recommended "Mugs" to me and they were right - excellent food. No sitdown, though - only carry... More

This is the one place where I have always felt satisfied after eating their dinners. Especially the rib & chicken dinners; comes with your choice of potatoes (my favorite is their homemade au gratin potatoes), soup, cole slaw or salad ( salads are always fresh). The food is always the best quality and I will continue to go there for... More

Recomended by a neighbor hood teen, and it was great recomendation. One of the best Pizzas, good flavor, particularly the sausage. Crust is not the thin, thin crust , more substantial crust.. They never skimp on the cheese. Overall very good

In Des Plaines, there is a small pizza joint that packs a big on-two. Mugavero's Pizza is the best pizza in the Chicagoland area. They are there even when you get that urge at 2:00 am (even @ 3:00 am)! It was a luck of the draw when I looked in the yellowpages at 11:00 pm. There it was and... More
