“Great Neighborhood Dining Experience.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 March 2014

Whenever I'm near Dearborn I make it a point to eat here. Great food at fair prices, extremely friendly staff, and a cast of characters from the neighborhood, all in a vintage atmosphere. Places like this are a dying breed.

Try the Polish dishes, just as good as Hamtramck without the elevated prices. The breakfast specials are outstanding too. Never had a bad meal yet.

“Great food and great staff!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 October 2013

The best pierogis you will ever taste. My family's been going there since the place was first established and was called Aunt Eva's. It's the definition of a local, neighborhood restaurant.

“Great Poilish Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 October 2013

Had a lunch special which included pierogis, potato pancakes, and stuffed cabbage, and it was all excellent. The restaurant has a "old school" charm to it, and seems like someplace out of the 1960's. The service was fast and friendly, and the prices were more than reasonable. The restaurant is easy to miss as you drive down Michigan Ave., but it's well worth a visit.

“Zora and the Polish food...awesome!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 September 2013

Had the polish combo with kielbasa, pierogies, and cabbage soup.... BEST EVER! The restaurant is a classic with the same waitstaff for over 20 years! Old school menu with a cool neighborhood vibe. It doesn't get any better than this!
