The name of this place is actually Gemato's Wood Pit BBQ. I had been driving by it for a while, and decided to stop for lunch now that they've completely redone the exterior. I ordered one of the combos - a sandwich, drink, and side - and really liked that the side gives you the choice of soup or fries.... More

My husband and I stopped here for an early dinner on our way home from Elmhurst College. He ordered the Beef Brisket Platter with Greek potatoes, garlic bread, and baked beans. He loved the whole meal and was very full from the nice portion of food. I ordered the Pulled Pork Platter with French fries, garlic bread, and coleslaw. I... More

We decided to order takeout from this place because the other Greek-style Chicago places were closing. This was a bit further than the others, but boy are we glad we stopped in. The Greek Salad here is one of the best we've ever had and that includes the salad from some of the nicer Greek restaurants. The Gyros was very... More

Gemato's makes good wood smoked brisket, pulled pork, ribs and more. Their french fries are my absolute favorite. They offer home made soups, which are excellent. I can't say enough good things about their BBQ brisket of beef and pulled pork. And, if you have the desire to grill yourself, you can buy their BBQ sauce. We do it frequently.... More

We had dinner here for the first time and really enjoyed their Bar B Q. My wife had the pulled pork. My son had a rack of ribs, and I had a platter of chicken and ribs. Everything tasted great and the sauce was very tasty. The service was fast and friendly. They offered some gluten free combos, (which my... More

My husband loves the ribs from the Naperville location and has driven the 45 min drive on several locations to get them. He found out that they opened a new Worth location 8 months ago and decided to give it a try. He said that the ribs were the same, great tasting as the other location and he would come... More

Gemato's is one of our favorite places to eat. Nothing fancy, moderately priced, good service and great food. Their ribs are simply spectacular. My wife is a fan of their Greek chicken and potatoes. They have a wide menu variety but everything is made to order and always comes out hot. Their portion sizes are generous. I would highly recommend... More
