Kankakee Township Reviews

We do have a lot of different places to go throughout Kankakee and Kankakee County for food and shopping but those are the two biggest things. Our mall used to have a lot more stores but the rent is so high many places have moved out. I really like the mom-and-pop restaurants that we have such as Blues Cafe, Carl's, and Crazy Joe's.

I know that Kankakee has a very high unemployment rate but I also know people that have multiple jobs, so it really depends on the person and their own ability to perform certain tasks and job requirements.
