We have eaten here many times but always pizza so I am not sure about the other items on the menu. This is one of my favorite places for pizza and I have never experienced any issues with the food or the service. They can get really busy on weekend so I would recommend making a reservation.

Food was mediocre at best. They had artificial calamari, and the deep dish pizza was barely ok. You could taste the fact that the tomato paste and sauce was from a can. I wouldnt waste my money at this establishment again.

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
