Hey, on our way to Chicagoland Speedway and in the small town of Manteno, this is worth the stop. Great food prepared right. They cook after you order and it is good quality food. Just nice quiet little family resturant. They close at 7:00 pm so be aware. Will definitely go back. Be aware, we each ordered the chicken dinner... More

To be fair - I have been here 4 times - have never ordered anything but the broasted chicken meal - everyone in the family gets the chicken dinner - soup is excellent also. It does take about 20 minutes to get the chicken because they cook to order - but worth the wait. so much food - the broasted... More

We wanted to try a new place to eat and had a wonderful experience when we stopped at Mayberry Junction in Manteno. If you want a good meal, excellent value, superior service, this is the place to eat. The theme of the restaurant revolves around the Andy Griffin show. That just adds a bit of flavor to the place.

This is one of those places you just need to rush home and rave about so you don't forget to! Went here today with my disabled father who is a Navy Veteran. The staff ran to open the doors for us and helped him in his wheelchair. They made sure we had really good seating and that my dad was... More

What an amazing restaurant! Fantastic service. Cozy dining area, yet private enough to have you own conversations. We ate breakfast there. Ordered omelets. WOW!!! The perfect balance of cheese, egg, and meat. Cheese in every bite, tasty, delicious. Service was attentive and polite. Even though we are not "local," we were treated equally special as they were. The prices where... More

I came in at ten after seven with my fiance to have a sandwich. We were told they were closed and were turned away!!! We just moved here ftom Tinley Park and I think that is just terrible business and we will never return to this establishment. Honor your hours of operation! :/

Mayberry Junction is your stereotypical greasy spoon type restaurant. They give you lots of yummy food, and the service is friendly and polite. Its a simple place with great specialty omlettes. However, its slightly overpriced by about $1 on everything.

Small town, home cooking, large America menu selection. Nothing fancy but the food is good, the prices are reasonable, and the local senior citizens seem to love this small family-owned place. It is named and themed after Mayberry, the fictional town where the Andy Griffith show was set.
