I've finally found a place in town with great wings! Nice atmosphere and friendly service.

After this last visit to Mona's, I have to say I'll NEVER be back again. I went here for a post-event celebration and dinner with a group of 7 people. An out-of-state friend in my party was kind enough to give me a bottle of wine as a gift, so I brought it along to dinner (expecting a small "corking" fee). We ordered entrees, appetizers, cocktails, and dessert. The server (who was on the slow side, and not that friendly) finally got around to opening our wine and pouring it, and we were chewing on not particularly fresh bread for quite a while waiting for our entrees (those turned out okay, not anything special...particularly for the price). Suddenly, the manager of the restaurant walks up to our table and loudly berates us (in front of other customers) for bringing in the wine bottle, saying it was illegal, and she would have to charge us a pouring fee (which I fully expected in the first place). What would you guess the amount was that was added to our bill? $5? $10? Nope...try $25!!! Yes, the menu has a wide variety of stuff. There are certainly better options for the price both in and out of town you should consider before going to Mona's. Some of the food is good, but a lot of the entrees suffer from having one too many ingredients thrown in the mix, if that makes any sense. After this experience, all of us at the table (you pissed off 5 UWEC professors who frequent that restaurant pretty often, by the way) vowed never to eat here again. We will tell our colleagues about this experience, and encourage them to "wine and dine" out of town guests elsewhere. You turned an otherwise very happy occasion into a truly unpleasant ending - Congratulations!

While the service may be a little slow, it's well worth the wait. Really good, authentic hmong cuisine, that's inexpensive. Unlike some asian restaurants the food doesn't sit like lead in your stomach. Great noodle wraps!

Decent food, pretty good mixed drinks. Sometimes there dishes have spices that don't belong and can ruin an otherwise good dish.
