Love Cemeno's pizza (I prefer the thin crust)! A must when you are in Joliet. Great salad also. Great for banquets and they have a great bar with lots of COLD draft beer.

Food was mediocre at best. They had artificial calamari, and the deep dish pizza was barely ok. You could taste the fact that the tomato paste and sauce was from a can. I wouldnt waste my money at this establishment again.
