Today was the first time my wife and I had visited. It was all you can eat spaghetti and chicken!! The spaghetti sauce was wonderful and the chicken was delicious. We looked at the menu and was loving what we saw. We will have to make this a routine place so we can try more menu items. This was a great find.


My husband and I have been to the Bistro several times. The food is absolutely delicious. Try the pork quesadilla -- it's awesome! The employees are very conscientious and friendly. We were very satisfied and will go there often.

Sharon and Carl

First visit tonite, and we will be back! Pork nachos were excellent (1/2 order is enough for 2-4 people). Pork tenderloin was very very good too. Service was good, friendly owner and staff, prices are reasonable. Nice background music, but quiet enough to have a conversation at the table.

James B.

This is my new favorite peoria restaurant! I got the best sandwich that I have had while dining in peoria. This is peoria's best food and best italian sandwich!

Cheryl A.

We ate there for the 1st time...Everything was wonderful, the service was great & very clean. We will definitely be back. We had Peoria Pork Tenderloin, Chicago Italian beef & New York Pastrami. Everything was excellant.

Pam K.

We have had almost all of the sandwiches and they are great. The Peoria tenderloin is withou a doubt the best we have had in years and the best in the city. The ribs were excellent and fell off the bones. They are all finger licking good. We have had the tenderloin almost every week since they opened. Quick and friendly service.

Amy L.

Lunch today was Fantastic!! The Peoria Pork Tenderloin is the BEST tenderloin I have eaten in years...juicy, meaty and huge!! Can't wait to try some of your other menu items. 

Jamaria L.

i had da tenderlion an fries and it was wonderful!

Anita S.

I've eaten there twice in one week! Had the Italian Beef on my second visit - it was just like what we used to get many years ago while living in NW Indiana, which had several places known for their Italian Beef. I'm sure I'll be a frequent customer and this will be on my list of favorite places to dine! The service is also great and the staff so personable and efficient!


The Peoria Pork Tenderloin was by far the best tenderloin I have had in years!! Juicy, tender and HUGE! Will order that again and again....


The brisket sandwhich was better than I've had at several BBQ joints before. My wife had a Philly cheesesteak and said it was the best she had ever had. I tried a bite and it was excellent! The fries are great too. We will definitely be back.


I've eaten there one time and had the broasted chicken. It was great!


The cheesesteak was great. Good portion size and great taste. Even the hoagie was good. The fries were a surprise. Typically shoestring fries are soggy but yours were crispy - awesome!


We just love this restaurant. We have tried 6 of the sandwiches and they are all wonderful. You can taste that everything is made fresh. We are thrilled to have a local restaurant in our neighborhood.


The Pastrami is UNBELIEVABLE. It could be the perfect sandwich!


That was, by far, the best reuben I have ever had.


Had the Houston Brisket. It was well worth the wait for them to open!

Julie m.

The Broasted chicken was the tenderest, juiciest chicken I've ever had!


My husband and I went to the new Famous City Bistro in Peoria and the food was Excellent, the best Italian Beef and Pulled Pork we have had in the Peoria area. The Carolina BBQ Gold sauce is awesome. The decore is beautiful, truly a wonderful dining experience. I can't wait to try some of their other meals. Welcome to Peoria!

Gary S.

I tried the ribs - they were fall off the bone delicious!
