I once lived around the corner from this place, before I knew the value of a quality dive. Hope they can make it.

Oh man, I would more than joyously eat at this restaurant.

I have a similar one in my old neighborhood called "Polonez".

http://polonezrestaurant.com/

It's hard for me to eat at a Polish place like this, because it reminds me of my Polish Ma, and her home-made pierogi and Polish sausage and sauerkraut and potatoes and mushroom soup.

My brother served our country in Vietnam. He didn't ask to be drafted and sent there for combat.

When he came home, he slept and slept and slept and when he got up, my Ma made him comfort food like this every day until he got back on his feet.

I distinctly remember this, and I was just a boy. She made him Polish sausage, eggs easy-over to dunk the sausage in the yolk, potato pancakes, pierogi and sauerkraut.

Food like this soothes the soul.

The job market is pretty hot right now for 50+ year olds without any skills, so I've got that going for me.

At least you could get some Dovetail Lager to warsh down all that delicious Polish food.

My wife's pierogi look very similar to those, but hers are Ukrainian.

Headed to the northern LP next week - Torch Lake, Traverse City, and one of the coolest Polish restaurants I've ever been to - http://www.legsinn.com/

The food is pretty solid compared to a lot of the laketown tourist traps. It's the scenery that makes it worth it.

The smoked whitefish dip, farmer's cheese pierogies, kabanosy, and potato pancakes.  Follow that up with a kielbasa sammich.  Then roll my fat happy ass out the door.  :cheers:

I purchased my weight in Polish KIELBASAS today. Kabanosy and Jałowcowa.
