So Sorry, it's GONE!

The last time that I tried to visit this restaurant, I got there, only to read that they were no longer open, and had closed for good. Guess this economy was too rough for them.

After hearing some great reviews, and reading some excellent reviews, Online, we went out of our way to go there for lunch. Being of Czech decent, and my husband and his sister being of Polish decent, we were familiar with the items listed on the menu. I had a large luncheon special of breaded pork tenderloin, sauerkraut, bread dumplings, and... More

This place is terrible and they don't care about what they serve. The fish was grey. I do admit though, My wife's meal was acceptable. I will never return to this place again.

This is the place to go for ethnic food when you are really hungry. My husband and I went with a large group of friends and we had a good experience. The luncheon menu offers about a half dozen entrees, complete with soup, bread, 2sides and dessert for $7.80. I was stuffed after the soup and bread! Typical ethnic entrees... More

If you love Polish/German food this is the place for you!!! I always order the chicken schnitzel and they cook it to perfection. They give you a gravy boat with all main dishes, perfect for dipping by the way. All meals include desert. If you are in the mood for some domestic beverages they only charge $1.00 for beer and...

Hidden away in a small strip Mall location near Joliet, Illinois. The food is spectacular! The service couldn't be better. I think this is the best kept secret in suburban Chicago. The portions are huge and the price is right! Every entre I've had has been DELICIOUS! Never left hungry and never had room for dessert! Senior discounts available on... More

Not a lot to say. It was all just very average. We've had German, Polish food before & much better. We realized after we left that we were never served our dumplings which was a side selection. The waitress however was very friendly. I can't say we'll return though.

Totally unexpected! Wide menu of Eastern European food. I had wonderful smoke butt, another had stuffed cabbage, and another had roast pork. All were excellent! Went for lunch and it was not crowded. Have heard dinner is another story. Parking is free. We are going back!

Came in with the family around 5:30 on a Saturday... Everything had a very authentic taste. My son ordered the Roast Turkey/Dressing which was delicious. My wife ordered the Prague Cutlet... which was a huge breaded chicken cutlet stuffed with cheese and some type of ham. That was quite delicious. My Thuringer was cooked just right and had a very...
