Looking for a place to feed a crowd for graduation, this was the place. One of our favorite places in Chicago, near my son's apartment, we had been here before. Small, hole in the wall, unpretentious exterior as well as in. Don't ignore because of...More

The food is good, but expect to be forced to order more than you probably want. On the plus side, you'll have leftovers for a second full meal (if you have fairly quick access to a fridge). Watch out for the bread basket; I saw...More

Don't expect white linens and fine china here - definitely a retro-diner environment, plastic tablecloths, unmatched silverware, weird display of Polish souvenirs and icons, TV with Polish music videos playing behind the counter.
