New location is so much nicer than the previous one. Way more seating, so more customers at the same time = longer wait times but it's worth it. You can call ahead and order, or order online to save time. The owners are nice people...More

My husband and I usually get the gyros at Kojack's. They are authentic Greek made and they give you enough meat for two gyros. We make sure to always get another pita bread for lunch the next day. Prices are reasonable and the food is...More

Love the new site. Parking can be a little challenging sometimes, but not a reason to not eat here. Most food is above average, and if you’re eating in, there appears to be a nice selection of beers. Not bad for a “gyro place” Much...More

1st time visiting new location. Very nice, new, fresh atmosphere. I really enjoyed my Philly cheesesteak sandwich but my son’s burger was just ok. Seemed like a frozen patty from Costco. We will be back but won’t order a burger again.

After previously disappointed and at the urging of my family we gave it another try. Very over priced and slow they have 6 or 7 kitchen workers but little system. The only thing fresh is the lettuce. Beef is pre made frozen. Burgers cheap frozen...More

The kind of Hot Dog the Chicago area is noted for. Steamed bun, relish, mustard, onion, pickle spear, tomato and sport peppers. Just needed a poppy seed bun to make it better. The fries were tasty. For a beverage, I had the watermelon tea; refreshing.

Less than average hot dog stand. Need to change their process. Very slow, above average price, less than average food.

Same food as the old location but much nicer building. Decent hamburger but people come for the gyros. Large menu. Fast service. Packed at lunch.

Gyros, kabobs, hot dogs, pizza puffs and their new Chicken Cantina tacos are FANTASTIC! Food is cooked to order and everyone is friendly and willing to make your experience top notch. I love Italian beef, so I hate to tell you I'm not a fan...More

The food is so good, and flavorful, and homemade at fast food prices. IF you grew up in Chicago area, you are familiar with Italian Beef Sandwiches and these are one of the best. Gyros, off the spit, not re-heated. Chicken gyros are also delicious....More

Kojak's is more than just a friendly, casual-dining experience. Locally owned and operated, Kojak's is committed to customer-driven, friendly service and great food. Come and enjoy our new location... a wonderful beer selection including an array of craft beers, a 24-flavor ice cream bar, outdoor patio and a special gaming hideaway for the adults. Popular menu items include Gyros (#1 seller), 1/2 Greek chicken dinner, Chicken and Lamb Kabobs, grilled chicken sandwich, wraps and salads. Some choices for a side include onion rings, sweet potato fries, or our home-style chips. Then finish it all up with our now-famous Deep Fried Oreos or a couple of scoops of Hershey's real ice cream. And for an added perk, we can deliver right to your front door or place of work. Kojak's is definitely an experience you won't want to miss.
