Why did it take us so long to discover Cemeno's Pizza in Joliet, Illinois? My wife and I grew up in south suburban Blue Island so, over the years, we had heard about Cemeno's, which was established in 1976 at 1630 Essington Road. Home to Doug's Dugout Sports Bar with its 25 HD plasma TVs and private banquet rooms, Cemeno's... More

Cemeno's traditional pizza is very good, but I strayed from the norm on a recent visit and ordered a pizza bianca. I ate one piece and that was it. Way too much garlic and a soggy crust. Their salads are outstanding. I'm sticking with sausage or pepperoni next time.

We have eaten here many times but always pizza so I am not sure about the other items on the menu. This is one of my favorite places for pizza and I have never experienced any issues with the food or the service. They can get really busy on weekend so I would recommend making a reservation.

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.

Stopped to pickup on a Wednesday evening and it was really hopping. Garlic cheese was very good with thin crust and got a fresh salad. Two pizzas and a salad fed seven with leftovers.

My boyfriend has lived in Joliet for the past 2 years and had never visited, so on my asking, we decided to give Cemeno's a try. I loved the atmosphere and the way the restaurant was set up. I ordered the calamari appetizer for starters. For the price we paid ($6.95, I believe) I was rather disappointed. It was really... More
