Polish food like many other ethnic foods is judged by how close it is to what we tasted growing up. Pierogi that tastes home made is one of the most difficult foods to find at a restaurant. Polish Goodies is the exception. A very small (5 table) restaurant serves about 5 traditional Polish foods: Peirogi (potato and cheese (farmer's cheese), cabage/saurkraut/mushroom, and meat), stuffed cabbage, polish sausage with cabbage, and polish crepes with either cheese or plum filling. Costs about $5-7 Pierogi are home made and hand made by the owner. The pierogi dough was thin - not at all chewy - each pierogi was plump with filling and served with butter, bacon and onions on top (optional) and sour cream. Stuffed cabbage were large and filling. I understand from the owner that they increase the variety of foods served during the busy season in Phoenix starting about October. Check the website for hours - the close about 5 or 6.
Located at 8903 N. 7th St. in Phoenix - We found it because we saw the sign on 7th street as we were headed to our hotel. You need to drive around Radio Shack to the side of the strip mall - where you will see a simple sign Polish Goodies. The dark glass prevents you from seeing inside where it looks like a sandwich shop with the menu on the wall. Definitly worth looking for to get the pierogi.
