Bites Nearby: Polonus

Generous servings of Polish food are served up in an atmosphere to match.

Each week, Wyandotte Patch editors and readers will pick a great restaurant either in town or nearby whose cuisine is considered to reign supreme.

Here’s this week’s choice:

Greatest Dish Ever: The Hungry Pole Feast ($10.95) is a chance to try four Polonus favorites at once. Polish kielbasa, potato pierogi, stuffed cabbage and a meatball are all served together in one meal.

Don't Miss: City Chicken ($9.50) has been a preferred delicacy of Polish-Americans for many years. Polonus chefs prepare city chicken by sliding pork and veal on to a wooden skewer, dipping it in egg and breadcrumbs and baking it. 

Overview: The restaurant is owned and operated by the Mucha family, former residents of Poland who ensure that the food is authentic. Traditional Polish music plays in the large dining room, while generous portions of food are brought to the tables.

Decor: A life-size female doll, dressed in traditional Polish clothing, greets customers at the door. The walls of the restaurant are full of Polish artifacts, knickknacks and national emblems. The dining area contains pictures of former kings that once ruled the European nation.

The Drinks: Pepsi products, coffee, milk and tea make up the beverage selections.

Entrees: Two pieces of Polish kielbasa ($8.25), stuffed cabbage ($9.50) and meatballs ($7.95) are among customer favorites. Roast beef ($8.75) and roast pork ($7.00) are both served in homemade brown gravy. As for seafood, fried lake perch ($9.95) is available on Fridays and broiled salmon is sold everyday ($10.25).

Sides: All entrees are served with a choice of mashed potatoes, Polish dumplings (kluski) or french fries. Also with the meal is the choice of tossed salad, coleslaw, sweet or sour cabbage or cucumbers in sour cream.

Desserts: After dinner options include: pineapple cream cake ($3.95), the cheesecake of the day ($3.25), crepe ($2.95) or an ice cream scoop ($2.00).

Service: Customers are immediately greeted upon entering the restaurant and quickly seated. The waitstaff is very helpful with any menu questions or special requests.

It should be added that they also serve alcohol here - I've enjoyed the Polish beer selection they have.
