Amazing service, the owners were so welcoming and the staff was polite. The food was delicious and the restaurant is very clean. Good prices and they're more than willing to give you suggestions if you're unsure what to try!

Delicious food and warm hospitality. Very different flavor as compared to the run-of-the-mill Mexican food. Had Chicken Flautas and Corn Tamales for dinner, and Flan for dessert. Everything tasted delicious and healthy. Will visit again during my next trip to Gurnee, IL.

Great variety, not just Mexican food, loved the sweet plantain steak named jibarito" and the meat empanada (caribbean). A liitle wait but worth it. I missed the typical complimentary corn chips though.

Thank Nadia C
Kathleen R, Owner at Momcorn, responded to this reviewResponded 9 June 2016

Nadia, thank you for taking time to write a review of the food at Momcorn. Because our chips are hand cut and cooked to order, we do not automatically provide them to the table. Trust me, our customers say they are worth it.

Independent quick casual restaurant serving foods from Mexico and Latin America. Menu is clearly marked with a large variety of naturally gluten-free options. See your food prepared in the open kitchen. Try one of the house made beverages and the made to order chips and guacamole. Delivery available during lunch and dinner hours.
