Huge portions and prices to match. All the locals highly recommend Janko’s, so the three of went on of our second night in town. Having already eaten too much great food in Bloomington, I looked for something smaller and chose the Hungarian Meatballs and baked a potato. The portion was still too big, but good and spicy. The other 2... More

I met an old college friend whom I had not seen in 20 years or more. He had a Groupon so he suggested Jankos. On a weekend night, reservations are an absolute must. The place was packed and the wait was long. But the steak was worth the wait. The decor is not fancy, but the food was superb. There... More

The place was absolutely packed as expected. A little bit of a wait for our 7:30 reservation as several tables camped after paying their check. Felt a little rushed - service was terrific and the quality of steaks is definitely in line with the price - will definitely visit again (for a third time) in the spring - wonderful food,... More

This is an institution! If you are lucky enough to get a table you will have a great time. Having several kids at IU we have gone there at least 10 times. Steaks are huge, share! Burgers are amazing! Good wine list. We always go there when in town. Good, noisy vide.

I was surprised to find a steakhouse that served a stake of this caliber in Bloomington Indiana. My steak was perfectly cooked medium with a a good Char on it. I loved every bite of it. It was sheer perfection. The shrimp cocktail that I had was super. I've also had the meatballs for an appetizer here and there spicy... More

The manager at the hotel we were staying at recommended this place to us. We like to try restaurants that the locals like. Usually can't go wrong with them. He said the steak was good and the meatballs were excellent but spicy so beware. Wasn't hard to find. Had to wait about 5 minutes to be seated. We were there... More

If you like your meat then this is for you, we had really good steaks and a good Oregon Pinot to wash it done. The steaks were cooked to perfection, not cheap but not over the top either, everything else is pretty standard American Fare, a bowl of Green Salad and a Roast potato with Sour Cream on the side....

Great steak, neat restaurant. The atmosphere is laid back, it's kinda a corner dive that only sells steak ... But man is the steak good!!! The beer selection isn't huge, and it's all bottled ... But the wine selection is huge if u are a wine drinker. Great cozy atmosphere, great food, great time!
