This was our first visit. Yummy spicy meatballs, great steak, fantastic stuffed green pepper and baked potato. Large portions. Definitely would go back.

Okay, the food was great, I loved the spicy meatballs, ( I'm a Mexican eater ) and I loved the Indiana atmosphere. However, the wait was so long I ended up asking about 8 times when the food is coming. Seriously, it took what seemed like FOREVER. Overall, as good as the food was, it wasn't worth the wait. But...

I'm not sure better prime rib exists; and service was exemplary. Getting in was the only challenge we had.

Having eaten at Janko's before(and being very pleased) wife and I decided to eat there on Anniversary Ordering the famous meatballs(better be prepared) was a very pleasant surprise. Ordered 20 oz ribeye and potato. I am a big eater but could not come close to finishing the steak. It was tender and cooked to perfection. Could have not been more... More

I actually like Janko's better than this review would indicate. It has been there for yonks. It is charmingly tatty. The personnel are pleasant. You never forget you are in a University town. But if you step outside of the vibe and consider the value proposition, not so great. The steaks are tender and s-a-l-t-y, so they come across as... More

I have been here many times now and must say it's always great. The steaks are outstanding along with the meatballs. We always order ribs, meatballs and shrimp cocktail and then the main course. The food is worth every penny you will spend at this restaurant. The service is outstanding. The food came out hot and the drinks were never... More

It wasn't bad, but I wasn't particularly impressed with the food or atmosphere. Everyone basically tasted like it had only been salted. Some people really like this style of cooking (especially with steak) but it just wasn't for me.

I love Janko's. The steaks are great and the meatballs are amazing - super spicy and mind-blowing. If you are there on a weekend, make sure to get reservations - it fills up fast.

A restaurant in decline. It used to be great, but no longer strives for excellence. It's not even trying to live up to its once great reputation in food and service. I was very disappointed tonight. This is not the Janko's of old. The rolls were pathetic, like a cheap bag of discount supermarket rolls made from processed flour. They... More
