I've never had Russian food and it was excellent! Not too crowded, very fair prices, small selection, but all appropriate. The cole slaw is the best I've ever had. I will definitely be back especially since I camp in Cosby often.

We come here when we stay in Cosby; the food is the bomb! Everything is made from scratch and it surely tastes like it. The prices are really low for the quality of the food you get! Two thumbs up from us :)
