I had seen this restaurant on numerous local TV shows and was anxious to try it out. I went with my friend who had been before so I wasn’t totally lost. The food is served cafeteria style so you’ll want to review the offerings before...More

Sokolowski's University inn is a place not to be missed. From the memorabilia on the walls, history of the building and finally the food. Homemade food that is out of this world, health portions as Grandma would give you. Chicken paprikash, pierogies, stuffed cabbage, these...More
