GREAT burger with grilled onions and blue cheese... And a good drink!
— Liz Komorowski | Facebook Reviews
I blew a tire in front of Cousin Hugo’s early on a Saturday morning. Owner Tommy brought me in from the cold and served up the BEST cup of coffee, which I enjoyed in front of a warm fireplace. For over 30 years I have lived in the Maplewood-Richmond Heights area. I had never been inside. It is much bigger on the inside than it looks driving by. The ambience is cozy. I look forward to returning to try the cuisine. I lost a tire but I made a community connection, a comfort in these tumultuous times.

Great place to go in nice weather as they have a delightful little patio. They have a very diverse menu with a lot of choices, but they are famous for their Hugo burgers. Try their delicious homemade chips as a side, or pay a small upcharge to French fries or onion rings. Try their $6.99 lunch special during the week which comes with a single cheeseburger, fries or chips, and a soft drink.

The service is great and I have never waited more than fifteen minutes for my meal. Never ate here except for lunch, but seems like it would be a great place to go and spend an evening with some drinks and good friends as well. Overall I would definitely recommend Cousin Hugo’s as a neat little place to go for lunch, dinner or just drinks. Seems mostly family friendly as well, but don’t know if that could change in the evenings.

This place is awesome! Everything from the ripe red tomato on my sandwich to the side of ranch with my jalapeño poppers. They have options for a variety of dishes that are very affordable.

Hugo’s is a HOMETOWN hero, managing to have great food and an awesome feel with your meal. I say hometown quite literally. This is actually a house that has since been converted/expanded into a restaurant.

I always order the Grilled Cheese Deluxe. Sounds pretty straight forward, but in fact, a work of art. Loaded with cheese, accompanied w/ a fresh tomato and bacon strips. Notably is the crisp bacon, not plagued with the rubbery effect sandwiches often face.

The outside patio has prime seating area, nicely lit, with homemade chairs. I bring up the chairs because their made from PVC pipe, and outperform any equipment Eddie Bauer or Ozark Trail would produce. Super comfortable.

Bring the family and kids. Low-key, word-of-mouth, local real estate. Regulars fill the crowd. Full bar at the entrance, ample tables in the LIVING ROOM, and a sweet deck in the back. Tell your friends, and tell them I told ya to tell em!

Good food (fish sandwich, patty melt, mushroom app) and fantastic best in class service. We look forward to coming back for ribs.

I love the food and the atmosphere. When I am in the area Hugo’s is my place to go. Service is always friendly and fast.

I love this place. Staff is great, food is good, drinks and specials are great. I can easily say I blame my lack of weight loss on them (try the burger and fries, only place I’ll eat them).

I was at a birthday party for a friend... Service was great, food and drink were too! Our waitress did a wonderful job taking care of us!
— Debra Pancoast Libby | Facebook Reviews
Truly a place where people know your name... and your choice of beverage... and even what you eat on a regular basis. Has become a great place to take children out to dinner, as Laura and Tracey on Friday nights are great with the little ones! Has been our dinner date on Fridays for over five years. Hugo’s has a really caring staff and we hope to visit them another five years!

I must confess. I saw a meatloaf special in their FB post and knew we had to have it. We were not disappointed. Delicious meatloaf, possibly best we’ve ever had in a restaurant or bar. We also thoroughly enjoyed an order of onion rings as an appetizer. Service was also excellent. Also happy to know they serve my favorite soft drink. Thank you, Cousin Hugo’s!

Great wings, loved the salad and ranch... Great service and affordable!

Cousin Hugo’s is great for lunch. They have an incredible cheeseburger special that includes a cheeseburger with your choice of cheese, topped your way. Also included is a side of fries or onion rings. I always choose onion rings, but I hear the fries are good too. Finally, a drink is also included.

Delicious food, attentive wait staff, and a small local business. What more could you ask for?
— Al S. | Yelp Reviews
Had the wings. The sauce was awesome! Then the Reuben! Perfection! The pub chips were great!
— Greg Riddle | Facebook Reviews
First time I’ve been here. The burger was excellent with a very fresh bun. Love the grilled onions. Chips must be home made. Server was very attentive. I think she said that she’s worked there twenty years

Hard to beat their cheeseburger lunch special. Fried green beans are amazing.
— Kris Bishop | Google Reviews
The restaurant is a bit cramped, which is probably a testimony to how good the food is. They need to squeeze in as many seats as possible to handle their popularity.

They serve typical bar fair, plus some really quaint home cooking. It’s quite tasty, and the lunch specials are a good deal.

All I can say is, well, I absolutely love Cousin Hugo’s, and I shall continue to refer so many folk here day and day again, because, the food, the atmosphere, is 100% great, and I love it. Reserve me a seat, please.

I’m from Chicago and I really really liked my visit to Cousin Hugo’s. The burger tastes just like one you would make on your grill in your back yard, delicious.

Great lunch special. Cheese burger, side and drink, $6.99. I had the onion rings, which were to die for. Staff is very friendly. Bartender was super nice. Just a little place but the food and service are wonderful. I will be back. YUM give them a try.

This is the definition of a kick butt neighborhood joint. Cold beers, friendly folk; both customer and server alike. Fabulous fries and juicy burgers. All whilst not emptying the pocketbook!
