BuffetBuster,

I just LOVE the charm of this restaurant and the surroundings.  The decor is so homey and personal as well.

As for the food, i nearly drooled over my keyboard, such hearty fare for sure.

MMMMMM. 

Thank you.

Thank you for this thread! I drive past this place on my way to work every day, but I always assumed it had closed down, as I rarely see anyone there!  I will definitely have to check this place out, is there a minimum number of people you need or anything? Seems it would be best for large groups.



I'm responding to an old thread because I can answer a question: 

On our trip last Friday, Alex said that an appointment should be for a minimum of four people.

The Kentucky trip did go well. I'm writing hard on the report in a struggle to finish it before our next trip!

Amazing! AJB must be an angel! $15/person, when you consider the overheads, the meaty dishes, the hand labor going into EACH dish nockedli, palacsinta, langos], shopping, carrying stuff upstairs, prepping, cleanup, INSURANCE etc. is no real income for him  at age 65!! A labor of love!!

I just wanted to add, since this thread has been resurrected, that this is one of my favorite roadfood reviews ever.

I showed these pics to my wife, who's part Hungarian, and whose Grandfather owned a Hungarian Bakery in NYC. She knows some of the food pictured here (fond memories of Langos, how'd I miss that after 29 years of marriage???) some not.

If we ever get to Pittsburgh again ( and I do want to get to the Pirates' Stadium) this will be stop #1.

Thanks!

Since you typically need at least four people to get a reservation/appointment, if any Roadfooders come to Pittsburgh and want to dine here, I would be more than happy to join them.

This is unbelievable! I saw the news about the flooding in PA this morning and it got me thinking about the short time I lived in Pittsburgh in the late '80s. I fired up the computer and started looking for pictures and maps of the area. That is when I came across these postings about Alex and his restaurant. I never dreamed in a million years that he would still be in business, but I am VERY glad he is. Alex is one of the nicest people you could ever meet. I came to PA very down on my luck. He gave my a job at what was then a Hungarian Deli on the corner of 2nd street. He taught me to make the incredible crepes that he apparently still offers as well as some of the other dishes. I am from South TX and know nothing of Hungarian food but I do know when something is good and his food was always very good.  
After reading these posts I realize that I was probably one of his very first employees!
So, just know that when you go see Alex you won't be disappointed and you will be well feed!

I was saddened to learn about the recent flooding in Pittsburgh. It took me back to the late 40's & 50's when the rivers flooded with regularity. Then the flood control dams were built up river and flooding was minimized. Pittsburgh has had some historic floods.
