“We thought this place was great with piles of really good food in a fast-paced setting”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

We found this on a back street and just wanted a kind of "local" experience so we czeched it out. So busy the night we came and when you see an empty table just grab it. Very, very busy but the staff knew how to keep things moving and the food and beer was really nice and not at all expensive. Food came fast and 1/2 of the restaurant is non-smoking (to the right when you come in the door).

“A typical czech tavern in the basement.”
Reviewed October 20, 2012 via mobile

Smoky place where you won't spend lots of money 'coz the average dish is $10 or less. The menu list is long and full of pork and meet stuff.

“Great traditional Czech food”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

we enjoyed this meal very much, I would definitely go back. We had traditional goulash and pork and dumplings, all were very good just like my grandmother used to make.

“Ate here twice in one day”
Reviewed September 19, 2012 via mobile

Smoked pork in plum sauce was fab as was red wine sold by the glass. We enjoyed lunch so much that we went back for dinner. Good atmosphere, and high quality food at a great price.
