We had a 4th birthday party and had about 20 people, Besides some pulled pork that was made, fried chicken was ordered, along with a couple sides. It was quite good. The pick-up was ready exactly at the time promised. The staff was friendly. And, the prices are reasonable.

We order most of our pizza from Mugs. When it's delivered it's always hot. If you like cheese this is the place to get it from. We've also ordered their ribs. Delicious. Highly recommend.

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
