We stopped in here on a Saturday at 5:00 for dinner. Soon after we sat down, this pub filled up quickly. Drinks were served quickly. We ordered the hottest wings they prepare which were the habanero wings. The server said are you sure. Yes I am sure because you cannot out hot me. The wings came out and I was... More

We went in to get dinner and watch he game. The service was fast even though the place was pretty full. The prices are descent. You get pretty massive sores/waters and a bowl of complimentary popcorn for the table. I really like how they have dividers/curtains above the backs of the booths so you feel like you have a bit...

I frequent Kouri's often enough. Food is serviceable--the appetizers are pretty great but most of the entrees are nothing to write home about (absolutely recommend the cheeseballs with the homemade ranch and the enchiladas are surprisingly great)--and the draft selection is bog standard. It's really your standard midwestern pub. The firepit patio is nice; sitting by a fire (when it's... More

Stop in for a late dinner after setting up for Marigold fest. We had the cheddar cheese balls, awesome. I had the until son sauge with hot pepper cheese and fries. It was great. My wife had the chicken salad and cottage cheese. It was good but she would have liked the bread toasted. Beer is always cold.

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
