Yannis Cafe

Reviews:
Great old diner and café! We have only stopped here for breakfast--so can't review anything else. Breakfast is always served hot and the service is fast. Prices are very reasonable--almost too reasonable--we wonder how they make any profit sometimes. Servings are large--remember if you want two eggs to order one egg, if you want three eggs order two--Yannis Café always adds an extra egg! Our three-year old grandson ordered silver dollar pancakes--a platter came filled with 14 pancakes! Great people. Stop by if you are ever traveling from Chicago south on I57--Yanni's is located in the quaint downtown area of Manteno near the railroad track. We always allow time to visit the antique mall on the other side of the tracks when we go.
Such a nice place! I have dined here twice. The food is very good and the staff are all very nice. I had the center cut pork chops. They were a tad dry, but flavorful. If you find yourself in Manteno, stop in anytime seven days a week!
we always stop at Yanni's when we are in town. Great breakfast and wonderful service.

La Cabana

Driving thru Manteno, wanting Lunch, decided to use good ol' "yelp" and found this awesome hidden gem, excellent food, great margaritas. ...we will be back!
A nice place to grab a bite in an extremely small town with few choices, so coming to La Cabana and finding such authentic Mexican food was a treat! We tried the tacos, burrito special, and of course, margaritas! We enjoyed the tacos with pork more than anything!! A must if you find yourself anywhere near Manteno because there is seriously nothing else worth eating for 20 miles!
Never a disappointment! The service is always prompt and friendly. Food is delicious and servings are plentiful. The margaritas are awesome (the watermelon one is super yummy) and go down super smooth! Great place for lunch (they have very reasonably priced lunch specials). The atmosphere is appealing and laid back.

Mayberry Junction

390 N Locust St
Manteno, 60950
Reviews:
Passing through and stopped in for a bite to eat. It actually took a few minutes to piece together the name of the restaurant and the Andy Griffith show. It's an easy diner menu. The food was fine, nothing spectacular but enough that I enjoyed my meal. The server was great and the food was ready rather quick. I think most people will enjoy the themed decoration. You'll see characters names and pictures on the wall. It seemed as if they had the usual regulars there because. If I ever cross through again, I'll stop by.
My friend suggested Mayberry Junction as a spot we needed to try out. It's been getting a lot of local press in the Daily Journal, so we needed to see what the hubub was about. Although I like to find the newest places, I'm always down for a classic diner experience and this is what Mayberry promises. When we walked in, we weren't greeted as if we were old friends. We were looked at like we didn't fit in. Since I feel like a freak 96% of the time, I shrugged it off with an optimistic attitude. The same person threw the menus in our hands, along with the check, and told us to go sit at table # (whatever.. I can't remember what number.) I half thought it was a joke and that she was just giving us an idea of where we were headed, but when I said "Um. Which table is that?" She pointed while she made her way back to the stool behind the counter. This most certainly wasn't a joke. At this point, I was tempted to walk out. It really, really rubbed me the wrong way. When our server made it to our table, she was extremely welcoming and almost made our strange entrance seem like less of a deal. She told us the specials and offered us drinks. She kept our drinks full throughout the whole meal and made a recommendation to me when I couldn't decide what soup to order. I decided on the stuffed pepper soup and the patty melt. The stuffed pepper soup was decent, but barely warm. I think this could have stood to be nuked in the microwave another 30 seconds. On the other hand, the patty melt was scolding hot. It was really quite tasty and something I would order again. The fries were nothing special and may have just been frozen fries. Aside from the food and service, I found this place decorated very strangely. I have no problem with restaurants that are on the kitschy side, but if you're going to have a theme, then commit to it and stick with it. This was somewhat decorated in the Andy Griffith theme, but the theme wasn't quite developed all the way through. I found the food pretty good, but the reason for 3 stars is that I probably wouldn't ever come back here. I like to go to places where they actually want me here and not where I'm a hindrance to precious stool time.
This place sucks. When you walk in they just stare at you. After 5 minutes someone will seat you. The food tastes like hospital food, rather than the down-home country food I expected.
