Old Warsaw Buffet Review
Chicago’s rich melting pot of immigrants makes for some really good eats, often time at a real value as well.
There are many, many Polish restaurants like the White Eagle, where food is served family style. Check out Czech grub at the Czech Plaza. Whatever you like, whatever you’re curious about – Ukrainian, any kind of Chinese, Eastern European, Malay, Italian – you’re apt to find it in Chicago. Restaurants and grocers.
I was dropping off a friend at O’Hare, and we had time to kill, we stopped at Old Warsaw, a legendary Polish buffet. The spread was magnificent, and included hot and cold entrees, borscht, many salads, and desserts. Sausages, blintzs, potato pancakes, rustic bread.
All in, around $12 per person and of course it’s all you can eat. The restaurant has group space and has special menus on holidays at different pricing. Full bar. Distinctly Eastern European decor, which is a fun ambiance as well.
I was in Poland as it was just emerging from its decades of darkness. This was much better food. LOL
On Harlem, just south of the Kennedy.
