    Amazingly good food. Little different style restaurant with the whole cafeteria thing. Don't bother with sides and just load up on pierogis (2$ extra). Can't go wrong w any of the meats, sodas, desser

    The Salisbury Steak, Chicken Paprikash and a plate of Pierogies are the clutch move here! But we got a peek at the Daily Special - Philly Cheese Steak - and had serious order envy!

    THE BEST eastern European comfort food ANYWHERE!! Make sure you get there either as soon as they open or an hour before they close; otherwise, the place is crazy packed...all the time! Worth the wait

    I had the Kielbasa dinner. I'd love to say it was just like Grandma used to make, but it wasn't. It was BETTER! My Grandma made incredible Slovak food but she never made fresh, homemade kielbasa!

    Holy Meatloaf Batman... That was amazing. As everyone said before, huge portions (I'm a 6'2" 270lb football player and I was packed full) and the pierogies/mashed potatoes were the best ill ever find.

    Eastern European immigrants, multigenerational families, and Food Network chef Michael Symon all swear by the old- school stuffed cabbage & kielbasa. More places to eat like a local: tandl.me/12ufz7c

    This place reminded me of eating in my Polish grandmother's basement, not to mention the golumkies were just like hers. One trip here made it clear why this place has been around for almost 100 years.

    Cafeteria-style service, and dessert is the first thing you see. Go past the dessert unless you have a second stomach. The portions are HUGE and they have a free salad bar. Stuffed cabbage rolls MMM

    Everytime I am there my go-to lunch is the Salisbury steak. The taste of home made salisbury, with mash potatoes and gravy gives you a home away from home fullness, great way to spend your lunch.

    Don't miss out on some of the best pierogis you've ever had. And the stuffed cabbage is excellent!

    The delicious hysteria of having to choose among so much good-looking food is a state of mind known to cognoscenti as cafeteria anxiety. Read more

    Chef Michael Symon once described Sokolowski's butter-soaked pierogies as "America at its finest." Order them as your main dish or a side.

    Best fish fry in CLE . So many options. It's hard to choose. But My favorite is the grilled trout, with sides of Mac n cheese and pirogi's

    Do yourself a favor and get the chicken paprikash with dumplings. You'll compare every meal you have to it for the rest of your life.

    I don't get it. Was not really all that impressed with this place. It's an institution that has been there for many, many years, but I'm not a fan. My taste buds must be different or something.
