Great place to stop if you are looking for handmade home cooked food. Down home friendly service. Nice atmosphere. Near the Kankakee River. We will definately stop back.

“Decent food, large menu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

Been to Nelly's a few times over the last couple of months. Food is basically burgers and sandwiches. Menu is very extensive and can take some time to read over. Servers are very friendly and fast. Food has always been prepared well and to the table fast. Portions are large, you will not leave hungry.
