  • So I decided to venture forth and try something outside my comfort zone (major chains) and decided to try Mugsy's which is located on Main Street in Bloomington,right across the street from the Ferguson-Munsell dorms of the Illinois Wesleyan campus
  • Upon walking in, I noticed the bar features that are standard to most pubs, dark interiors, low power lighting, and various sports/movie/entertainment souvenirs and pictures that are pinned to the walls
  • I made three trips over three days to Mugsy's in order to taste the various specialties (Cheesemuggers, wings, and various appetizers), I found the food for the most part worthy of their price
  • They are neither amazing nor disappointing, and they are priced sensibly for the amount you receive
  • Overall, it is an enjoyable experience, a nice break from assembly line food or an overly greasy and unappetizing sideshow to beer

      Being in Bloomington, Illinois, I often feel as though I am in the capital of food. Every major street has dozens of venues, both chain and independently owned. Many have developed cult followings with people swearing up and down the relative benefits of one over another.

      noticed the “bar” features that are standard to most pubs, dark interiors, low power lighting, and various sports/movie/entertainment souvenirs and pictures that are pinned to the walls.

      The center is dominated by the bar, with booths located around it, and the waitresses are attractive and scantily dressed (more so on holidays). I made three trips over three days to Mugsy’s in order to taste the various specialties (Cheesemuggers, wings, and various appetizers), I found the food for the most part worthy of their price.

      Though a cheeezemugger with fires and drink ...


      • will run you over $10, it is made with quality meat and to whatever specifications you want. Unlike similar barfood, it is much less oily but retains the taste of a great burger.

        The wings, however, are certainly overpriced. Though they seem low in price overall at $8 for a dozen, they have less than decent taste, which is bottled buffalo sauce vs home made, and an after taste that is less Buffalo wild Wings and more frozen Sam’s Club brand wings.

        Sometimes paying more nets more, and in this case

        keep your money for a Thursday at BWW. The appetizers, the fries and corn dogs, are served with most meals that I could see.

        They are neither amazing nor disappointing, and they are priced sensibly for the amount you receive. For drinks, it is rather disappointing that they only offer RC products for soda, but their beers are fairly cheep, more so than any other bar in the area.

        Overall, it is an enjoyable experience, a nice break from assembly line food or an overly greasy and unappetizing sideshow to beer.
