Where can I find great POLISH food in the Chicago area? Places to sit down and eat, and stores to buy uncooked?

You'll probably get plenty of responses with first hand experiences here... But until then, found this list on the net: http://centerstage.net/restaurants/styles/polish.html

The Red Apple gets plenty of good local press coverage. I have never eaten there.

Is Teresa's still open in Jeff Park? Across the street from a pork butcher and around the corner from the Blueline station.

I ate there a number of times several years ago and thought it was great.

I hope some Chigagoan will give an update.

The Red Apple IS good. But don't forget the delis! If I had to choose, I'd market shop over eating out.

Fortunately, however, I DON'T HAVE TO CHOOSE.

The best Polish deli ( for me) is Kasia's at approx. 2200 W. Chicago Ave. The are other good deli's on Western near Chicago Ave. I also like Rich's Deli on the corner of Iowa and Western.

As I stated in a past post, fo rmy money, Anjez's grill at approx. 1046 N. Western Ave. is a Polish culinary treasure. The best homemade periogis in Chicago! and has many other great dishes.

Enjoy, after eating there let me know how your experience was.

The best on the SW side used to be Tatra Inn on Pulaski, but they are currently closed. They are still looking for a new location, so I'm not giving up on them. If you want to call them to keep the pierogi in their ear call (773)582-8313. Meanwhile, Bobak's is a near second on Archer Ave.

I asked elsewhere, but will add it here. Where to go for the best cabbage rolls?

It is now on my list...and my hands WILL be down...on top of some cabbage rolls!

I believe Andy's Deli (West Division) is where I've gotten them before. Anyway, I had to throw something together for a friend of mine who was on his way up there with his family. Wish I'd had this then, but I will definitely have it as a future reference (and will do a little research on it, too)!

Polish guy, all I know is that once my brother took me to a Polish bakery in Chicago, where no one but us spoke English. I always think of it when I hear the part of the current immigration debate about speaking English!
