Tips

  • Second best perogi in Chicago next to Babcia
  • Ignore the foursquare rating. Best pierogi in Chicago.
  • This homey Polish cooking in lodge translates to "taste-yes!" Try their Hungarian style pancake, the piergos, hunter stew, or stuffed cabbage rolls.
  • Everything
  • Get the mushroom soup! Its great when you dip the bread in it and they give you one generous helping...
  • The pierogis here are so tender and some of the best you will find in Chicago. The grilled kielbasa and layered honey cake are also wonderful. - Inspector
  • Best pierogis, and a killer white borscht.
  • BYOB with no corkage fee.
  • At this family-operated joint you can taste the commitment to serving fresh Polish fare. We highly recommend the Hungarian pancake, a crisp and lacy potato pancake stuffed with meaty, spicy goulash.
  • Get the pork.
  • So good! Try the stuffed cabbage!
  • Great chicken liver and mushroom soup. Everything like from my kitchen. Love it!
  • Try the polish food
  • Very accommodating staff, have it on good authority that the food is very authentic
  • Chi has the biggest Polish population outside of Warsaw. No other American city can match their pierogis. Here, the pockets of beef are encased in a thick dough and served with butter and sour cream.
