What it lacks in atmosphere (if you are looking beyond great college town feel) it more than makes up for in quality and quantity of beef. Yes, there are other offerings like seafood, pork chops, ribs, etc., but why go to a steakhouse for those? The petit filet was perfect at 7 oz. - most servings are much larger, for... More

I'm going to be blunt. This place sucks. I have eaten there 4 times in my 43 years of life, and will not be back, even at someone else's expense. I can't say anymore than has already been stated in the poor reviews. Save your money and go to Texas Roadhouse where the steaks are 100 times better and 1/3... More

I had the Jumbo Shrimp appetizer and the 11 oz Filet which were both excellent. It's a fun place to eat, but crowded, especially on the weekend. I waited 30 minutes with a reservation. The aggravating part is they have very little room to wait, which is an inconvenience to the waitresses trying to maneuver through the crowd. I'm surprised... More

I will always come back for the steak. However the sides are just average. Steaks are top notch, recommend the Ribeye. For anyone who's never been here, the interior is decorated like a cheap burger joint. Don't expect an elegant steakhouse.

Outstanding steaks, very ordinary otherwise, no options on sides, no up-grade on salad. Huge steaks (18 oz. NY Strip), bigger than necessary, very good but not enough to justify price.

Always worth the drive for us. We have not had a bad experience yet. Service to the food, it is always on point. Make reservations or you may not get a table.

We live in town, but honestly never eat out much. When we do, it is usually for a special occassion. Everytime we choose Janko's, the meal is outstanding. It is a meat place, so the meat is amazing. Not sure what they do to make it so tender and cook it perfectly to the customer's order, but I have never... More

Had a great dinner at Janko's on a recent trip to Bloomington. We had the meatballs and the ribs as an appetizer and then I had the huge rib-eye. The meatballs were delicious with a slightly spicy sauce that left your lips burning. The ribs were tender and prepared well. Not much smoky flavor but they tasted good. The steaks... More

Best steak I've had in a long time. Cant beat this one. The staff was great and attentive, and the background music was perfect...Clapton to Sinatra. So good we went back twice and had a great time.

1 pound burgers! 20 ounce Ribeye steaks! All meals are LARGE. My Ribeye was delicious...but so big I could hardly touch my baked potato. Overall a very nice local establishment in a nice area of the city.
