Fantastic home cooked style lunch. Puréed beets were terrific, stuffed cabbage was the best thing there. No frills, inexpensive, like eating in someone's kitchen

We had kielbasa and pierogi and some little potato dumplings (don't recall the name) everything was really good. Food is served cafeteria style and it's not a fancy place but everything was clean and the food was worth the stop for sure.

I have gone here for lunch on several occasions and I have never been disappointed. They serve good, solid, hearty Polish food. I knew the place was good when I saw the firemen from the local fire station eating there. I usually get something to go after eating there,

This is authentic Polish food, if this is what you are looking to eat. A small cafeteria style restaurant with lunch -early dinner hours. The Pierogies are not in the cafeteria setting but are made to order. Besides cheese/onion they offer sauerkraut and meat Pierogies. By far the best I've ever eaten since my grandma used to make them. They... More

This place is unassuming and its humble decor aspires to be a style of its own but the Polish comfort food they serve is very good. Simple, typically Polish dishes, very tasty bigos, golabki, kotlety, pierogi, cabbage dishes. You are likely to be back for more if you generally like middle European cuisine.

The decor, if you can call it that, hasn't changed here since about 1970. The menu hasn't changed either. Beets, kraut, kielbasa, pierogi, and golabki. The frequency that locals visit this establishment attests to its authenticity. I would not say the food is "amazing" but it is good, hearty, and consistently good.

If we judged places to eat by exteriors and interiors, we would pass by this place without a blink. But do stop in because you will enjoy home cooked Polish comfort food. We ordered just about everything they serve and shared it family style. The stuffed cabbage is tasty and tender just like you remember it. The fried pork chop... More
