I go here and get take out for my family for dinner once a month. This is just a small operation but it's authentic. I like the pork chops and sauerkraut, as it's something my kids will eat. It is never crowded, but things around it are, so I don't know if they advertise. It's in the plaza with Marazzo's... More

My wife and I like to eat out a lot and enjoy good food! Last night we decided to try something new and were delighted with the choice. Food was freshly cooked and delicious - from the Hungarian ghoulish and stuffed peppers - and let's not forget the homemade apple strudel. This quaint Restaurant hidden away in a shopping center...

Our first try at Hungarian food. Had Chicken Paprikas and Stuffed Cabbage. It was good, although we found that it lacked of spice and salt. But the authentic Hungarian food may be like that only, so we can't complain, since we wanted to try that. The meat was tender and juicy. Portions were so large that we couldn't finish and... More

As a Hungarian I can recommended this restaurant whole heartedly. The food was authentic and delicious. The restaurant owner, Barbara, visited our table and complimented my oldest son on his good Hungarian. Our American friends who never had Hungarian food before loved it, too. They were initially hesitant to try something different, but they were pleasantly surprised how much they... More

We decided to try this place on way to a concert. The interior is somewhat spartian but is neat and clean. We visited on a Friday evening about 6 pm and there was very little business during the time we were there. Soda and ice tea (Snapple) come in containers so don't expect a refill unless you place a second... More

This was my first try at Hungarian food. I was going to pick up Mexican food from the place next door to bring home to the family for dinner but they were closed, and since we were all feeling adventurous everone decided to try this place. When I walked in the place was empty except for the sweet couple running... More

We stopped here based on Trip Advisor recommendations and had a great lunch. I had a cabbage and pork platter and my husband a gulyas soup. Both were delicious, especially with the added spaetzle I'd ordered to share as a side dish and the sour cream that came as an accompaniment. The entrees were around 8-9 $ and the spaetzle... More

Everyone cannot be a chef, and my fiancee and I found this out when we tried this place. We love Hungarian food and there are some good ones in town (try Blue!) but this place is not the one to choose.

I found this place based on trip advisor and went here for dinner. I ordered the goulash, cucumber salad, and cherry studel for dessert. I had the leftovers (goulash and dessert) for lunch the next day, as the portions are large. The food was very flavorful, especially with the sour cream stirred in. The restaurant is in a strip center,... More
