A couple of the guys with us were local and they said they have the best food in town. They were not wrong! Three of our group had hog wings and said they were excellent! I had chili and a custom grill cheese and it was great! The other fellow had the hillbilly burger and bragged on it. Great waitress,... More

If you are on the Interstates and are tired of chain restaurants this is a great example of good Southern Illinois food. Our waitress was Alicia and she did a great job of keeping our Flat tire beer pitcher full (only $8 a pitcher). and keeping us happy. The pork loin & beef brisket were great not to mention the...

Our hotel recommended this restaurant for good BBQ, burgers etc. and they were 100% right. From the time we walked in the door everything including the service, food and drinks was perfect. It was crowded (not surprised) but the server took time to explain the various sauces (brought samples too) and made us feel welcome in a "locals place". Many... More

If you miss the Frosty Mug, you've missed out on some great smoked meat. Don't let the exterior of the building fool you. It is worth the trip. We ordered the brisket dinner with two sides. The price was reasonable and everything prepared to perfection. The brisket was crusty around the edges but moist and flavorful on the inside. I... More

Frosty Mug is a casual neighborhood spot. Indoor and outdoor seating. Service staff is excellent - very attentive. Food is outstanding - homemade - beans and coleslaw were outstanding. Excellent barbecue. This one is a keeper.

Dropped in for lunch after reading favorable reviews. Taco salad was awesome. Tenderloin sandwich was very good. Beer was ice cold. Service was very good.
