The food here is pretty tasty. Great for large or small gatherings. They added a nice covered outdoor area that includes a bar. Several tv's to watch. Service is usually good. If you have a large group and are looking for a bar and grill scene this is your place for Pekin.

Great popcorn with your beers! Pizza is quite good if you like really thin crust and burgers are very tasty. Some unique appetizers with pita/hummus, crackers/cheese spread, fried pickles, etc. Wings are also a good option, a bit different from some other places. Other entrees have had varied success and it can be pretty slow during the dinner hour. Outdoor... More

The place is always hopping, but my experience was not that enjoyable. I feel like everything feels grimey. The furniture is beat up and horribly uncomfortable. By the time you get to the food, the appetite is gone. The food was alot more expensive than it should be. This is the place to pretend that you are "dining" out, but... More

Kouri's is a local bar and grill. Very popular by residents and they have a lot of regulars. The wings are a favorite. Pizza is good. Popcorn is complimentary. My personal favorite are fried pickles and cookie skillet dessert. Beer garden allows smoking and has fire pit. Worth a try.

You know how some sports bars deliver a really average experience? Too busy, long waits, typical bar food, etc. Kouris treats you like family. Their atmosphere is wonderful and the cold drinks and good eats rock. I highly recommend you visit with friends again and again. Try their boneless wings and the cookie monster!

Usually good servie and good food...Little on the expensive side but the portions are pretty large...the bartenders could be a little friendlier.

Food is good but this place is very dirty from the vestibule to the floor to the window sills. Our company in town refuses to go back there for fear the kitchen might be as unclean as the public places.

The food is average but the place is getting dirty. The service is good. the floors are filthy. I do not know why they do not clean up the place. It has a nice outdoor patio with a beautiful firepit.

We went to Kouri's one Sunday on a whim after church for dinner, and we are glad we did. We got there early enough that there weren't too many people there, which made me wonder if it was going to be good. But I shouldn't have worried. Their Sunday special is fried chicken, and it was delicious, just the right... More
