Ok, tried this place finally....NEVER AGAIN!. We were excited when they opened and wanted to get a good sample. We ordered the large Italian beef with mac n cheese and baked beans, the large pulled pork with green beans and mashed potatoes, and pulled pork nachos.

The good: the Italian beef was decent. the baked beans were very good in my opinion.

The bad: pork is bland....and to top it off, they give you 1/4 of BBQ sauce for a large sandwich. That's ridiculous. The green beans were just weird. The potatoes lacked any kind of flavor, as did the mac and cheese.

Now, the taste of food varies from person to person. But menu misrepresentation is another, and I consider a form of theft! That brings us to the pulled pork nachos.....

According to the menu, the pulled pork nachos are "the ultimate PIG out food. Crispy nachos, smothered in pulled pork, slaw, BBQ sauce, ranch dressing, cheddar cheese and green onions" for $8.25. Well, what we got was a small styrofoam container with some pulled pork, melted cheddar cheese, and the crumbs from the bottom of a bag of generic Doritos. What a joke! for $8.25.

This is after we visited the restaurant in December and they had no food left. I'm done, not concerned if they close or not. Braidwood does need some decent food, this is not it. I think those praising this place have really low standards...but to each his own. I'm not jonesing for Jones-eez!

What do you expect from the blow hard,it was to be a steak house can you imagine,the only way that place will be good is if he sell's it to someone who has a clue about a resturant.

I WAS AT JONES-EZZ LAST NIGHT HAD A GREAT DINNER. BUT COULDN'T UNDERSTAND WHY THERE WAS A FAT LADY HANDING HOT TOWELS OUT IN THE MENS BATHROOM. ONE GUY SAID IT'S GLORIA FROM CITY HALL TRYING TO MAKE EXTRA MONEY. BUT WHY STAND IN THE MENS BATHROOM? THERE ARE OTHER WAYS TO MAKE MONEY - LIKE A WALMART GREETER!

have to say ate there never again talk about tacky. Really plastic silverware and plates. Seen the same women working there in another local store bashing other people. If you want to keep people coming maybe you ought to tone it down a bit you never know whos around. People becarefull what you say in this place because shes a talker and nothing good either. Was very disappointed.

Vino's is very good. Fantastic pizza and burgers. They have a great selection of food. Was in there and had there filet and ribeyes which were excellent. We go to Al's steak house in Joliet and I think the steaks are better at Vino's.

We had Nelly's one time and I have to say that we got a lot of nothing for a whole lot of cash - never again. My husband likes Jones-eez, however, I think that it is not a warm place to be and I'm not talking about the temperature. Even though we have lived in the area for about 16 years, we are still treated like outsiders, and yes, the plastic utensils have to go - that is just cheesy. The Korner at first was very unfriendly also, but it did get better. My husband is willing to get any place a chance, or rather a couple of chances. I like Haydens a whole lot - that's about it. Oh, and my family also likes Ray's Ranch House, I could take the place or leave it.
Found a great place

But they don't serve any food at the stumble. So it can't compare. Glad you feel at home at least.
