Kouris is what we call our Cheers. The food is good and the waitresses are superb. We have become friends with so many of them. The atmosphere is perfect to relax and have a great time with family and friends.

Been going to Kouri's for a few decades now. Great sports bar atmosphere and good pub food. Their dry rub wings are the best around. Good location for some beers, a quick meal, or a bar atmosphere after 9:00. Good for kids and families during lunch and dinner. The steaks are probably some of the best in Pekin too. Casual... More

Kouri's is a bar, but it is also a restaurant that serves a varied menu of consistently good food. Burgers to pizza, steaks to salmon, all done well and served quickly. I helps that there is fresh popcorn on the table right after you sit down. The atmosphere is friendly and relaxed. You'll see everyone you know at one time... More

Kouri's has good food, appetizers and great popcorn. We eat there 2-3 times a week at lunch or dinner. Both of us love popcorn and it is served at no additional charge. For me probably the best burger in town and their nightly specials are very good as well. More of a sports bar but you see many of the... More

Lots of Televisions and the food is good. the inside is a little dated and carpeting could be changed - but the outside area is really nice. They do not offer sides with sandwiches so everything must be ordered separately which makes the tab add up....

This place is very family friendly but has a patio for more game watching and fun. They have outstanding boneless wings and food. We try to go as often as possible to enjoy the wings, sandwiches, fried pickles, popcorn and more.
