We were surprised when we drove up for lunch and there were no cars there. We ordered our food (boneless chicken wings and bone in chicken wings) and got our drinks. 20 minutes later, the smallest boneless chicken wings I ever saw were in front of me. 5 minutes later more boneless chicken wings came out. 5 minutes after that...

They have broasted fried chicken, which is cooked to absolute perfection. Have never had any better, and their macaroni salad is very different, with slightly sweet taste, but it is very good too. Everything we tried was just great, and the staff was also very friendly. They were very kind, and made sure everything was just right. The price is... More

Yummy flavor but very small chicken pieces! But their Potato Salad is THE BEST!!! Their 4 bean salad & Fruit Salad is also delicious too! Join their Club for return discounts! The Kankakee Location has an AWESOME Buffet!!!

They have great chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy and friendly service. But to be honest, everything could suck and I'd still go back for the to die for macaroni salad. It is really that good.

The new Jr's is within smelling distance of our house. We finally got it one night. We've had Jr's many times, but the chicken this time was over cooked. The sides were great like usual, but they are tiny.

This was such a REAL disappointment. We like the food from the other JR's in Kankakee and we thought it would be the same, but FAR from it. The chicken was very small, no taste, BAD service. The workers were young or early 20s and they were not polite or courteous. NEVER again will we go there.
