Pierogies in Metro Detroit

Please share with me your opinions as to where to find the best pierogies in Metro Detroit and why. Will it be in Hamtramck, Troy, Rochester, Wyandotte, or somewhere yet undiscovered?

Thanks for your help!

  1. My sister-in-law's father patrols the Hamtramack church bazaars for the finest in farm cheese pierogis. Delicious.

    1. Try Kopytko's Meat Market in Hamtramck. Their kielbasa is out of this world, and so I'd bet their pierogies are, too. Let us know if you try them.

      1. Christines Cuisine in Ferndale on Nine Mile at Hilton.

          1. Judith Harris Solomon of the Detroit News recently published a taste test of pierogi from five local establishments.

            Ranked from best to worst were

            1. Glass Onion Café in Clinton Township.
            2. Polish Market in Hamtramck, Macomb Township, Troy and Wyandotte.
            3. Pyza European Homemade Cooking Carry-out and Catering in Shelby Township.
            4. Polonious Restaurant in Wyandotte
            5. Utica Heights Bakery in Utica.

            Although I can't vouch for either, I've heard many good things about the pierogi at Steve's Three Brothers Restaurant 17820 W. Warren Avenue in the Warrendale neighborhood of Detroit.
            and for take-out Lila's Pierogi, 27811 Five Mile, Livonia.

            However, I can vouch for the delicious pierogi at the Polish diner Jim's Place Family Dining at 13245 Michigan Ave in Dearborn. They're excellent.

              Hmmm. Perhaps a trip to Jim's Place Family Dining is soon in order.

                Sure thing. I just got back from lunch at Three's Brothers. The pierogi there were good and arguably better than Jim's. But Jim's kielbasa is definitely tastier to my (albeit non-Polish) palette than Three Brother's.
