South Side Polish Buffet?

Querencia Feb 18, 2011 08:09 AM

I heard that Tatra Inn went out of business. Where on the South Side, halfway convenient via public transportation from Hyde Park, might there be a Polish buffet still open?

    Authentic, quality, cheap as dirt, Polish Food in a Cafeteria setting. This small place gets seriously packed, so avoid the crazy busy weekends.

      That's a funny name for a restaurant---is it, like, nice? I tried a Ukrainian buffet near Chicago & Leavitt that was pretty gross.

        Gilmart is a grocery store that also serves food. It looks like a grocery store.

          Haven't actually eaten inside as it's always been mega packed, only had food to go. Highly recommend it!
