4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

used to come here with my grandmother, as a child. the menu is virtually the same as it has been for 40+ years. the roast pork, meatloaf, roast duck, sweet & sour cabbage, bread dumplings and liver dumpling soup are some of the best around. and you can't beat the price. absolutely one of the best values in chicago!

Years ago we loved this place. We moved further south, so we had not been here in years. We were in the neighborhood and decided to go for dinner. The pork and dumplings were quite dry. What they called pound cake, was actually a dry piece of marble cake. Chicken soup was very good.

The Czech Plaza serves hearty Eastern European meals including two types of goulash, breaded pork tenderloin, and roasted duck, all accompanied by delicious dumplings. Appetizers include yummy potato pancakes served with apple sauce and sour cream. The liver dumping soup is very good. Their desserts are excellent especially the apple strudel and apricot kolatchy. Nice ambiance, attentive service, very reasonable... More

Shared entrees with family so I tried a taste of the broiled Tilapia as well as the smoked sausage--all was very tasty! The portion sizes were rather small for the sauerkraut and soup in... More

This is our favorite place for pork tenderloin and dumplings. We also enjoy the liver dumpling soup. And don't forget to drink a Golden Pheasant!

I hate writing his review, because I'm 100 percent Czech and this is one of the last Czech ethnic places in a neighborhood that once was the heart of Chicago's Czech/Bohemian community. I have gone here for years, but this time, it was pretty empty and the two servers and the host had set up shop at one of the... More

The Czech Plaza Restaurant has been a place for our family going back to my Father's Parents- literally living "down the Block on 22nd- and all of their Brothers and Sisters. My family is 1/2 Bohemian at least the parts that matter were my Aunts and Uncles comments. In Celebrations & Strifes we would come in masse- Brothers, Sisters, Wives,... More
