    Awful burgers, but good borscht and perogies. Stick to the Ukrainian menu and expect basic Ukrainian dishes (lots of white bread, cabbage, sausage, potatoes, and pancakes).

    Get a variety of pierogi and an ice-cold cherry lime rickey. The little cup of grilled onions and sour cream are heaven!

    Great easy spot for late night food and a beer. Short rib pirogies pan fried are the way to go. And the boiled spinach and cheese.

    Borscht and varenky are definitely the best things here. Very neat and nice little place. Below was a sweet, blueberry varenky (a special) and potato varenky. Very delicious. Great service.

    Their Lamb/Feta and Turkey Burgers are love at first sight. Definitely the best burger bun that I have ever tasted. * It's open 24/7 and the service is always quick, professional and cheerful.

    It's mix of Ukrainian traditional food and modern American. We got meat combo plate - potato and meat varenyky, stuffed cabbage, borsch and salad. It was exactly the right choice! Bon appetite!

    Short rib pierogi's were great, potato pancake was the sweet cousin of hash browns with apple sauce on top. GRITS/POACHED EGGS WAS OFF THE FIGURATIVE CHAIN. Coffee was eh, bacon was gooooooood.
