Joliet Diners' Choice Winners
With a rich history as a working-class town, Joliet has mastered the art of the sandwich. This quick, portable and reasonably priced meal comes in numerous forms throughout Joliet from Reubens to burgers to poor boys. Thanks to the community's Slovenian heritage, your meal may come with kidney beans or other side dishes that reflect traditional Central European cooking. Another influence on Joliet dining is the city's proximity to Chicago. In Joliet restaurants, you can order your Windy City favorites without making the drive into the big city. These include gyros, deep-dish pizzas and all-beef hot dogs on poppy seed buns. Although diner food reigns supreme in Joliet, that's not all this community has to offer. Steakhouses are the Joliet favorite for fine dining.
