"For Old World Polish food in a casual setting at reasonable prices, it is hard to beat Babushka's. You can come here for a hoagie of smoked kielbasa or meat loaf or indulge in a lavish 'Hunter's Feast' of stuffed cabbage, kielbasa, roast pork, sauerkraut and dumplings, ..."   [Read More]

"I LOVE this place. It's really not much to look at, but the food really makes up for it. We had a Swiss and mushroom pierogie that was out of this world! Being part Polish I grew up having fresh pierogies from an awesome place in Chicago and these were as good or ..."   [Read More]

You get six jumbo pierogis of your choice on the pierogi platter. We went with two sauerkraut, two mushroom and Swiss, and two potato, bacon, and cheddar.

For those with a truly healthy appetite, the Hunter's feast is the way to go. This includes stuffed cabbage, smoked kielbasi, roast pork loin, sauerkraut and dumplings, and a pierogi, plus sour cream and onions. You also get to add two sides, in this case mashed potatoes and green beans.
