An adjective describing an object or location that is of poor quality or broken down. While expressing negative characteristics, janky is often used as a term of endearment for objects past their prime but still appreciated.
My '92 civic has terrible mileage, manual windows, and a broken stereo but I'd never get rid of it. I love that janky car.

You hungry? I know this janky Chinese restaurant downtown. Probably violates ten health codes but the chow mein is amazing.
