They charge you $13 for the 66th anniversary bowl which was supposed to come with grilled kielbasa. They didn’t add to the order and they didn’t want to refund me for that. Will never order from them again and they charge $5.00 plus tip.Rip off

I just called the Veselka restaurant to inquire about your questions. They are open for New Year's Eve. They do not take reservations and the manager said that the most you would wait on line is 15-20 minutes. Enjoy your visit!
