Stopped to pickup on a Wednesday evening and it was really hopping. Garlic cheese was very good with thin crust and got a fresh salad. Two pizzas and a salad fed seven with leftovers.

My boyfriend has lived in Joliet for the past 2 years and had never visited, so on my asking, we decided to give Cemeno's a try. I loved the atmosphere and the way the restaurant was set up. I ordered the calamari appetizer for starters. For the price we paid ($6.95, I believe) I was rather disappointed. It was really... More

After a great weekend in Chicago with my 15 yr old for our father/son weekend, we stopped at Cemeno's pizza in Joilet for some deep dish pizza! The pizza was delicious and only surpassed by the outstanding service! The prices were reasonable and their small deep dish fed us both and had a few slices to bring home! Highly recommend!

My family has been having parties here for years. My favorite pizza is the taco pizza. Dining area is very large, as is the party/banquet room. Staff is friendly and never had a problem with their delivery either.

Another must-visit restaurant anytime we visit my husband's hometown. We started with their large antipasti salad. Lots of meat, cheese and olives, just the way we like it. They left off the peppers for some reason, but it was still tasty. The pizza was yummy, as usual. They are a thinner crust, medium tomato sauce and lots of cheese. Just... More

We were visiting our grandparent and long-time Joliet residents and when they want pizza they go to Cemeno's Pizza. I had never had it before and it was amazing. We shared a very large pizza with the best sausage I've ever had, plus roasted red peppers and mushrooms. All around very unique and it could give any "gourmet" pizza restaurant... More

Cemeno's is our go to restaurant for a quick pizza & it's right around the corner from us. I love the antipasto salad, the dressing is perfect and a single serving is big enough to feed 3 or 4. Pizza has a nice thin crisp crust and is loaded with the toppings you order. Whether you dine in, carry out... More

A home visit brought me to Cemeno's with friends--- a large group of us! Excellent salads- ordered a large garden and a large antipasto salad. Wonderful flavor with both ! Two make your own pizzas. We pretty much devoured as much as we could, and the waitress was kind enough to bring plenty of carry out containers for all of... More
