Great pizza and salad dressing.

A must visit every time were in town. Love the family pleaser even though their lettuce always tastes a little dirty like chemicals. Great location and great staff.... Dream of their pizza. :)

Now there are a lot of great pizza joints out there, but in Kankakee, the best crust goes to Monicals. You may say there are better pizza's, but toppings alone don't make the slice. The crispy thin crust with crumbs on the bottom, goes a long way to challenging others in the area, many of which have softer even soggy... More

On a long drive this was a great find. I kept seeing signs for this restaurant chain at various interstate exits and finally decided to pull off and try it out. Glad I did! The pizza crust is like it's from a brick oven and the sauce is very well balanced. The cheese was good and not oily which made... More

I grew up going to Monical's, but we moved to Florida 12 years ago. When we go back to Illinois, my top priority (no kidding) is getting a Monical's pizza. On this trip, there were four of us, and we ordered the family pleaser. There was plenty of soda and salad for all of us, but we did need (and... More

I am a fan of Monicals and this restaurant is one of their better ones. I've always gotten good food and great service. Very consistent.

Maybe just bad luck, but this was one of the worst pizzas I have ever had. I ordered the chicken BBQ with bread sticks. The pizza arrived in about 40 mins. First the bread sticks were hard and it came with Alfredo sauce for dipping, not a good combination. The pizza (they call thin crust) I would say more like... More

I like deep dish, pan, and only monicals thin crust pizza. We usually get it with green peppers. sausage, pepperoni, and onions and if Im with my dad, mushrooms. This is honestly the best thin crust pizza I have ever had! They have this red salad dressing that we have to buy every time we go there because my niece... More

Food is consistently good. The family pleaser is great for a large or small group and is very reasonably priced.
