“excellent polish and german food in a charming restaurant downtown”
Reviewed August 21, 2008

J Betski's is located in a gentrified section of shops and restaurants just north of downtown Raleigh. it serves excellent polish and german food. the pork belly appetizer makes us swoon every time we order it - despite what it does to our waistlines! this is a relatively small restaurant and it's very popular - so make reservations or be prepared to wait 30-45 minutes for a table. superb beer and wine selection.

“Spectaular food”
Reviewed May 28, 2008

After reading all the reviews here I had to check it out. I can say that the food and service was really good. I recommend it to all. Good beer selection, menu stays on track with the German theme and the way they present the food makes you want to eat the plate as well. Excellent food and reasonably priced. Highly recommended. The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is that I thought the desert was missing something. But I shouldn't judge that because I ordered a lemon/strawberry dish and I am not a lemon fan to begin with. Enjoy!
