If you like spicy meatballs, you have to dine at this restaurant. These meatballs are amazing -- definitely spicy so if you don't like spice, do not order these. The flavor is amazing. Their steaks are also very good as well. A must place to eat.

If you can handle the spice (and they are REALLY spicy), you have to order the meatballs for an appetizer. We were eight people and we all LOVED them. Great wine list, which we all appreciated. There were all steak orders and one lobster order - everything was cooked great and, despite the fact that the place was packed, the... More

The tables are crammed in tight to accommodate the steady business. That's because it's always busy. No sauces, minimal choices for sides, because the only reason to be here is for melt in your mouth steak. Biggest cut is a Tomahawk. Eating meat with a huge (rib?) bone sticking out brings out the caveman in you.

This one is a favourite with the locals and for good reason. They cook perfect steak, and that's about all I have to say about that.

Have been going for years, had to include in our plans for our return to Bloomington. Never disappoints- not much on ambience, but that's not why you go. Excellent flavor on the steak, try the meatball with peppers appetizer for something different. Very good service despite being packed for date night.

Over the years, we've been to this restaurant many times. The steak is good, but the side salad and sides are so lackluster that I find it difficult to understand why everyone in Bloomington loves this restaurant so much. I

I lived in Chicago for 12 years and am no stranger to a good steak. I would put Janko's filet Mignon against any of the top steakhouses in Chicago and it could easily come on top. If you like a quality piece of beef at a fair price, look no further thank Little Zagreb! PS - Might want to try... More

My son and daughter in law treated us to a day in Bloomington starting with a steak for 2 at Zagrebs.. The meal was wonderful from the Grilled shrimp appetizer, to the bread to the totally awesome steak, to the salad and potato in between. The neighboring table looked at our steaks and asked us what we were having, He... More

Janko's is legendary in Bloomington. It's the place to eat on every special occasion and you had better get your reservation in early! It's all for good reason...the food is fantastic! Atmosphere? Well, if you're looking for fancy, this isn't it. Janko's has a lot of tables in a smallish space...IU memorabilia everywhere, red & white checkered tablecloths. You get... More

We ate here on 12-31-2016 and had a reservation. We got right in at our designated time. We had the T-Bone Steak at $39.99 24 ounce. The meal came with a Baked Potatoe, salad, and bread. The steak was very well cooked to our liking and was one of the best T-Bones this writer has ever ate. Really liked their... More
