We were in Justice, Il., attending a wake and found Szarotka Restaurant which sounded interesting. We decided on having dinner here. Our server, Derrick, seated us and gave us menus and provided us with specials. We ordered a cup of Highlander sour soup with a smoked rib. We also ordered a cup of goulash soup. The cup of the Highlander soup was actually a bowl because of the rib that was in it. The meat on the rib bone was very tender and tasty. Both soups were hot. Derrick also brought bread & rye bread to the table, though the butter was quite hard for spreading. For our dinners, our first entree was the dozen pierogi - half meat & the other half potato & cheese. Our second entree was the Polish plate #1 which included two large pieces of Polish sausage, two cabbage rolls, a half dozen potato & cheese pierogi and dumplings on a bed of sauerkraut. To see the portion was ample would be an understatement. We were unable to finish everything, so we'll be eating Polish food the remainder of the week. Derrick was friendly and efficient. Szarotka Restaurant has a bar with seating, as well as at least two banquet rooms. There is a lift at the front door for those who need assistance up the stairs. The parking lot is big with good access to & from Roberts Rd. The restaurant is two blocks south of 79th St. The Polish food was some of the best that we have tried. The cabbage rolls were nearly as good as Mom's and Grandma's.

Recently returning home from a wedding, we stopped at Mabenka for lunch. As usual we were greeted pleasantly and ordered from the extensive menu. There are always specials each day in addition to the many selections already offered. Both of us got the Polish plate which consisted of stuffed cabbage, pork, sauerkraut and pierogis. Absolutely delicious!!! So much food, we both took take away boxes. Both of us having a Polish background, and having traveled in Poland, we can attest that the meal was authentic and delicious!! Wait staff is Polish and could not have been any more efficient and pleasant. YOU MUST TRY THIS PLACE!!
I visited Joe & Franks in Oak Lawn a few times during a recent stay in theChicago area. Usually, I get pastries or bread to enjoy for breakfast, but this time Iwas determined to bring some home with me. There is no restaurant in this location,just a well-stocked grocery and deli counter. They feature Polish and Lithuanian foods, so I purchased some frozen items and fresh sausage. When I mentioned that I was carrying my goodies back on an airplane, the clerk vacuum-packed the sausage for me (for a small fee). The jars of Polish mustard and beets were confiscated by the TSA (really didn't want to take the chance of them breaking in my checked bag) but they were inexpensive & next time I'll know better! The pastries & bread from local bakeries were worth the scrutiny. Prices and selection were very good; I can imagine that this place packs them in around the holidays.

My friend and I dined here today. The specials of the day were less than $10 and most were $8. We ordered a potato pancake appetizer and received pancakes bigger than our plates. The mushroom soup was in a large cup and was tasty. Our lunch entrees were huge. For $23 (we had water), we had a huge lunch and leftovers to enjoy again. We peeked at the banquet hall, and it is very old world and charming. The only negative I have was the European techno music was a bit weird, too loud, and annoying.

I eat here about once a month and it is always a reliable small-scale neighborhood buffet at a very reasonable price. There are always two homemade soups, a salad bar which includes dishes like pickled beets, a main entree bar with meats, potatoes and pierogis, and finally a dessert bar with cakes and soft-serve ice cream. The clientele are blue collar workers on their lunch hour.
