Can't go wrong with Gemato's

I had been here before, but decided to stop with family for lunch. We had always had great food. It was the first time I had been in since they added on. For lunch, we ordered a variety of gyros and bbq. As always, everything was really good. They have always had quality and fresh food and... read more

We thought we were heading into a nice sit down restaurant. Instead, it was an order at the counter and seat yourself. They don't even bring the food to you. You have to go to the window and get it. The sides we extremely small. The meat wasn't bad though so I will give them that. However, we like spicy... More

This is a casual environment, walk up to place your order type of restaurant. This place seems to not ever have any combo meal deals and everything is ala carte. The staff is always somewhat rude. We come to this place like twice a year and I really don't know why we go back. There are also no refills on... More

I have never been here before so I thought I would try it for lunch. The portion was huge, but was mostly fries. However, the links and rib tips were excellent would have liked more rib tips. The sauce was sweet but very good. I really enjoyed it. The kitchen staff was friendly and the food came up quickly.

I was in the Chicago area on business and journeyed to Naperville for dinner with a dear friend and her kids. She choose Gemato's, a favorite of her family. I had Greek chicken and barbecue ribs, and they were both spectacular! Great food and a reunion with a friend -- wonderful experience all around!

Gemato's has been around for many years. I can remember 20 years ago when they were known for Gyros and other Greek specialties. Over the years however, they have gradually transformed into a BBQ restaurant with Greek item still on the menu. The BBQ here is good, however I find it hard to order when I'm used to getting gyros... More

There is NO excuse for cooking food this sweet ! ( Unless one uses too much sugar to mask the quality of meat perhaps..?) Stopped here on a whim, right after Thanksgiving, hungry. The four of us got two hamburgers and two sides of ribs - pork and beef with beans and coleslaw. Our kid liked her cheeseburger but the... More

I recently went to Gematos with my grandparents. They are regulars and swear they have the best pulled pork in the Chicago area. I was pretty excited because I'm always up for good pulled pork. Anyway the three of us went up to order. My grandma insisted on all of us getting the same meal deal. It was 9.19 for... More

I have visited this place many times. The number one thing is you smell the wood firepit the second you get out of the car. Ribs are my absolute favorite. The law of diminishing returns does not exist in this place for ribs. I can eat 1 rib, or full slab. The last rib will just be as tasty and... More

We have been going to Gemato's since Menards moved from that location. Maybe 10 - 15 years ago. I don't remember. They have the best ribs, the best chicken, and the best gyros. They are obviously doing something right, because they have are adding more space to the place. From the owner to the cooks - everyone is so friendly.... More
