    No, and I'm fairly sure that there aren't any. Closest and best would probably be Kyj's - various locations in DelCo. BUT I just saw a new place for kielbasa in Phoenixville - been meaning to ask Chowhounds about it.

        Are you talking about Wasko's?

          Maybe. On a street btwn Bridge & the hospital. I didn't see the name of the place & I was in a hurry, so all I took in was the big "Kielbasa" sign out front, right around Easter. It certainly lived up to the "mom & pop" description on Yelp.

            Wasko's is on 2nd & Main in Phoenixville. I'm a good friend of Jim Wasko's and I'm fairly positive that he doesn't make any kielbasa. He might be able to get it, but I really doubt he makes it. However; almost every weekend on the corner of Bridge & Starr in Phoenixville, the Holy Ghost Church has a food bazaar, of sorts. I'm ashamed that I've never stopped in (polish heritage) but there are handmade signs for haluski, piroshki, & kielbasa. I get the impression of some little blue-haired ladies making all of it (old country style). Also, there's a local Polish Club on Gay & High Streets that might be able to point you in the right direction.

          I haven't been there recently, but IME their pierogis are terrible.
