We took a group of over 20 people to experience authentic Czech cuisine, and we were NOT disappointed! The new owners have kept the same recipes, fresh ingredients, and stellar staff. We could not have been more pleased!

Get your fix of roast pork sauerkraut and dumplings here. Don't forget the Pierogi. Parking is tight, mostly along the streets. Good illumination, ADA accessible. Clean restrooms. Staff is friendly and polite. As for the small order if you are not sure about how much you can eat. Quality and Quantity is good.

used to come here with my grandmother, as a child. the menu is virtually the same as it has been for 40+ years. the roast pork, meatloaf, roast duck, sweet & sour cabbage, bread dumplings and liver dumpling soup are some of the best around. and you can't beat the price. absolutely one of the best values in chicago!

Years ago we loved this place. We moved further south, so we had not been here in years. We were in the neighborhood and decided to go for dinner. The pork and dumplings were quite dry. What they called pound cake, was actually a dry piece of marble cake. Chicken soup was very good.

The Czech Plaza serves hearty Eastern European meals including two types of goulash, breaded pork tenderloin, and roasted duck, all accompanied by delicious dumplings. Appetizers include yummy potato pancakes served with apple sauce and sour cream. The liver dumping soup is very good. Their desserts are excellent especially the apple strudel and apricot kolatchy. Nice ambiance, attentive service, very reasonable... More

This was my first visit here. Came with 2 other family members. I ordered the mushroom potato soup, Svickova (pickled beef) with bread dumpllngs and sauerkraut. Shared entrees with family so I tried a taste of the broiled Tilapia as well as the smoked sausage--all was very tasty! The portion sizes were rather small for the sauerkraut and soup in... More
