Our dining experience at Janko’s Little Zagreb of Bloomington was wrong on so many levels. I don’t usually write reviews for restaurants, but when the experience is this bad, it probably needs to be said. This was the second time that we have dined at Janko’s and we had a similar experience the first time but wrote it off as... More

Haven't been in a few years, was anxious to return, as I love steak!! Ordered prime rib special, full of fat & inedible tissue. My child picked up the last shrimp of the shrimp cocktail, had it in her hand, turned to speak with a friend, waitress grabbed the dish without asking if she was done. $110 for two (... More

I'm not easy to impress and this was absolutely fantastic. Great service, even better food. I had the gypsy kabob with some ribs as an appetizer and both were the best I've EVER had. 100% recommend.

Janko's has a following for a reason. The Meatballs Bucharest are a perfect appetizer and they're very spicy, but they are SO good. We always share a Sirloin for Two. I can honestly say that I've never had a badly prepared steak here and half the fun is in watching (and hearing) your food as it grills to perfection. Very... More

First I want to tell you I am a Bloomington native and have eaten here multiple times. I was never so disappointed in a meal. Service was great but both mine and my husband's steaks were unedible. I ordered the petite filet Medium and he ordered his Medium Well. Both were heavily charred and super dry. My husband's literally looked... More

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.
