I have been a regular here for several years. I always go for the Polish pierogies, which are really yummy. I'm a vegetarian and there aren't many vegetarian options here, but the pierogies are enough to keep me happy. I had a Polish friend visit once from Chicago, he declared it "the best Polish food he'd ever had." Now its... More

I've TRIED to eat there once. Today after church. Never again! Ordered spinach esplanadas. was served hamburger eslpanads. When I pointed this out to the waitress, she asked if I wanted something else. When I told here I wanted spinach esplanadas, she said they did not have them (although it is a menu choice). I told her that I did... More

As proud chef and owner of this well regarded restaurant I confess that I was shocked by the rudeness of this customer and his malicious review. I greated him and his lady companion, cordially thanked them for their first time visit, took their order and brought it to their table. Minutes later he called me to the table. He was... More

Stopped in for lunch today for our first visit to Homeland Food. My husband and I both opted for the Polish sampler platter to try several items at once. The kielbasa was some of the best I've had and the stuffed cabbage and pieroges were homemade and delicious. Great food and pleasant family oriented atmosphere. Will be back to try... More

We ate at Homeland Food for lunch during a recent trip to Oak Ridge and found the food to be excellent. The owner and chef visited with us as we were ordering to describe the menu and offer suggestions. She was a joy to meet and was very accommodating. During our two week trip to Oak Ridge, this was our... More

An interesting combination to say the least. Had the Polish sampler which consisted of pirouges, kielbasa, stuffed cabbage and saurkraut. Very, very good. Met the chef who is the wife of the owner, he is the Spanish connection. She was so glad we came by and invited us to return which we will. Next time I want to try a... More

Interesting mix of polish and Mexican food. Great food, good service, and cute decor. The owner and her daughter are on site and you can tell because everything is just right.

We were passing through Oak Ridge from Gatlinburg, TN and searched for fine restaurant in the area. Of course, I consulted Trip Advisor and as usual the other reviews did not fail. This place is a gem. We were lost because the GPS took us to the old address but it was worth finding this place. The owner Maria and... More
