About Us

Taking a page from the successful Mingles Cafe, we created Mingles Express Grill to fill the void expressed by many that there needs to be a place in the Bronx where great take out food can be found.

Mingles Express brings you the best takeout in New York City. Our Fried Chicken may just cause you to bite your fingers off if you’re not careful. Oxtails? Nothing comes even close. Our Mango BBG Wings are to die for, and our Signature Irie Pasta puts us in a category all by ourselves. There’s Irie Pasta, and then there’s, well, whatever that is. No comparison whatsoever!

Take a moment to pass by, grab something to eat, sit in, or take out. And don’t forget our cakes either. We’re looking forward to serving you.

Our Exclusive

Irie Pasta

Our Signature dish is IRIE PASTA.

Made with an attention to detail unseen anywhere else, our tri-color pasta is made from the best semolina flour available. Cooked at the just right temperature, we toss some fresh veggies and then blend it all in a special white sauce. The result; there simply aren’t enough words in the dictionary to describe this masterpiece; you just gotta have it to know.

Chicken, (as shown in photograph) is an additional charge
