Czech This Place Out

I first became a customer when my friend and I used to skip a class at Morton West HS and walk over for a great Bohemian lunch...circa 1968. Fast forward, the Czech Plaza is my "go to" Czech restaurant. The other is the Riverside restaurant on Harlem two blocks south of the tracks on Harlem. I... read more

I've been going here for several years now, and should have written about this place a long time ago. The food here is always consistent and quite plenty - I always seem to bring home half my meal. The menu has a variety of traditional dishes like beef with dill gravy and breaded pork tenderloin, as well as the roasted... More

I liked the atmosphere of the place and thought the servers very good - the food was the disappointment. Duck, sauerkraut, & dumplings w/ kolacky for dessert. The duck was all I really enjoyed. The dumplings were tasteless, as was the too thick gravy - sauerkraut too sweet & kolacky..... a sweet roll. Still, I'm glad Czech Plaza is there;... More

For an excellent Czech dinner, you want to visit Czech Plaza restaurant. You can choose from a great menu of various traditional dishes which are reasonably priced. Servings are very generous, so unless you go with a huge appetite odds are you will be taking home a doggy bag.

Excellent ethnic food and resonably priced. They now offer delivery ! Service is good even when they are busy which is most of the time. There is also a side room for small gatherings.

Service is slow however the food is excellent. During my dining I noticed regulars are waited on before new arrivals even if they come after you.

Kinda old fashioned with regular diners. Really good Czech food and you can't beat the prices. Duck was moist and quite favorable. Boiled beef in grave was satisfying. Dinners include a pretty decent bread basket of eye bread, soup choices that night goulash or liver dumpling. Both good. Boiled potatoes were real and perfectly boiled. Topped off with apple strudel... More

Czech Plaza has been our family restaurant for more years than I can say..we celebrate there, meet old friends when we are in Berwyn and dream about the food when we are away! The duck is as good as my grandmother made, the sweet and sour kraut is mouth-wateringly good and the dumpling and pork...what could be better. I must... More

Well, I got into town on Monday and then it hit - all of my favorite Czech restaurants are closed on Monday! Then a quick review of trip advisor showed two open - one in McCook and the Czech Plaza. I had been to the one in McCook a few times, however the Czech Plaza was in my old hometown,... More

Let me say right off the bat that I've been to Czech Plaza off and on for the last 40 years and though I still like it very much, it really was better 20 years ago. Mind you, most of the competition it had 20 years ago is gone now: Berwyn's Bohemians moved westward to other 'burbs a long time... More
