Michael,
If you head into town(less than a mile) on the road that connects to the freeway, Cross the RR Tracks and the restaurant (name forgotten) is on the left at that intersection. A second place is on the cross street that runs beside the tracks. Cross the tracks then Turn left onto it and the restaurants (both of them) are on your right...one on the corner and one about a block north. We ate at the one on the corner.

    Thanks, Al. I'll look for them the next time I go to Austin.

      OK, I have sorted thru the posts on this thread and need some further listings and more info, if anyone has it, about CZECH restaurants in the Chicago area. We are going to visit the Cicero- Berwyn area in Mid-October to photograph some of the locations where my family lived/worked and attended school back in the 1920's. This is part of our Family History project. I know the neighborhoods have changed, and we aren't planning to walk the streets at night or anything else real dumb. We would like to find some good Czech food in the area for lunch and or supper (weekday). We have already been to the BOHEMIAN CRYSTAL and have noted the Riverside Restaurant in Riverside and the KLAS in Berwyn. Any Other Suggestions or recommendations??

        Here is a list of Czech restaurants in the USA from the Czech Embassy in Washington DC.

            Mr. Bowen:

            You may want to do a search for 'czech' on these forums. I've seen some relevant postings w/ pix.

              Thanks again. I tried that link, but get an error message each time. I have several 'Czech Cultural' links like the one you gave me earlier, so I am satisfied that I have more info than I can ever use !!

              I have several elderly relatives who I have interviewed for names, addresses and locations for things like family homes, business locations and schools. We will be busy the morning we are in Cicero finding and photographing these places...but the photos add so much to the family history notes we are creating.

              We aren't going far enough west to stop in Minnesota or Nebraska at the Czech places there.

              We will be fairly close to Hillsboro, WI, another town noted for a Czech festival during the summer. Does anyone know of a Czech restaurant there????

              ALSO, Has anyone tried the commercial version of the "Knedlicki"(sp) Bread Dumplings that are like bread dough...you buy two 'Loaves' in a bag, then take them and boil them at home. Reminds me of U-Bake Pizza!! Anyway I see them in some of the food descriptions and note they are available in many locations in the area. I just wondered if anyone has tried them??? Here is a link to their factory.

                Al - Bread dumplings are my favorite. As we live a few blocks from the Bohemian Crystal, they sell a full steamed loaf and a pint of gravy for $3.00 or $4.00. They are open all holidays so we just drive over and pick them up. If we get them early, we use a steamer screen over a fry pan of boiling water and cover them with foil for 2 minutes...PERFECT! Most of my family uses Josie's and like them.

                I grew up in Riverside and the Riverside Czech Lodge were favorites of mine. Same with Klas and Old Prague. Try this link for other ideas... http://chicago.metromix.com/facets/restaurants/topic.restaurants.cuisine.european.czech - and on it, the Bohemina Garden does lots of advertising.

                If you make the Crystal, let me know. Would love to join you as long as it's not during a Cub's game!

                  Gregg,
                  We aren't sure how the timing of our photo-mission will work out (as of now), but will keep in mind a possible meet. Thanks for the tip on the dumplings. I love them too!
