Wonderful couple who run this place, good food! It is a small place, not fancy but great to talk with the owners.

we will never go near there without eating there. In fact we will drive 3hours extra to eat there. Plan to return real soon. Are one of the best places we have eaten cabbage rolls since my mom .

I love this place, homey atmosphere, great functions, mom and pop operation. It's like going to your grandparent's house for home cooking. They make a huge sub that's awesome to feed a family. Cabbage rolls and burgers that are delicious. They don't do fries but...More

I went with my family, 6 adults and 5 children, 2 of them less than a year old. The atmosphere of the place is pretty neat, and a bit quirky with lots of little trinkets and Elvis memorabilia. The kids liked all the toys and...More

Slow service, dirty plates and cutlery, crazy decor, cold pre-fab perogies, absolutely surreal. The place is jam packed with all kinds of bizarre trinkets, the staff told me everything is "home made", and then I received a plate of cold (previously frozen store bought) perogies...More
