One of a kind – This is a nice little place with food like my Polish grandparents would have served. It is small, so don't expect to be doted on if they are busy, but the service is good. If you can manage a word or two of Polish, they will treat you like family. We tried the white borscht, pirogies, borgi, sausage, and some excellent cake I dont remember the name of. It was all very good. We went back a few days later and bought some of the imported groceries. The staff, and other customers, were very helpful and patient with our questions of "what is this?" amd "How do you prepare that?" We'll be going back again regularly.
Yum! – I'm not even going to touch Seeker13's review. That chic is lost in her own little, rich, entitled world.
But the reviewer that said the food was cold and bland??? They must have gotten their restaurants mixed up. I've never had anything bland or cold when it was supposed to be hot, there. It's all so very flavorful. And a lot of the flavor comes from the talented cooking of the main ingredients like beef, bacon, tomatoes. Unlike some cuisines out there, this one does not rely on adding tons of salt, pepper, and other such spices for the main flavor... they just compliment the main ingredients. And unlike a lot of American restaurants out there, this place does not dump on a lot of cheese and cream on to make up for the lack in flavor.
I've been to this restaurant several times over the years. Yes, I've seen the owner on her less stellar, stressed days, when she seems preoccupied. But I would never call her surly or rude. Quite frankly, if she were as bad as the Soup Chef on Seinfeld, I've still go there for the food. But she's no where close.
I've taken many of my American friends there over the years. They take to the food quite readily, since most of the food doesn't require acquired tastes for Americans. My friends all finish stuffed and happy. I finish gorged and in bliss.
We are VERY, VERY poor! – I discovered FOR YOU last Christmas when I bought a 6 lb Polish ham for $44, a few dozen pierogies and other assorted meats and pickles for our Christmas dinner.
Recently I was asked to sponsor a Polish booth at our church International Festival. I visited FOR YOU last week to buy some food items to give away as door prizes at the Festival. I asked the owner if she would be willing to donate a couple of items in exchange for distributing FOR YOU menus at the church Festival. Before I could finish my request, she vigorously shook her head back and forth, frowning at me and saying, " No, No, we are poor. We are VERY, VERY, poor. No. No. We are NOT interested." Needless to say, she is going to be a lot poorer because I walked out without buying a single item and I will not be back. I will tell all of my friends at church. I think the owners problem is that she is not "poor"; she is "cheap". Remember that when you think about going there. If she is so "poor" that she cannot afford to be courteous, do you think she really cares about what she puts on your plate?
Best European Food – I completely disagree with the negative October review about this restaurant.
I frequent this restaurant, eating there a few times every week.
The food there is excellent and the staff are very polite and helpful.
The atmosphere is a very "homey" one, with everyone feeling like a member of the family.
I recommend this restaurant to anybody who wants to try something new.
Never again! – I did not like this place at all... just stopped in and the owners were rude, unhelpful. Food was cold and bland which could have been changed but b/c of the rude "know it all" attitude and service we left. Wont be back!
Przysmaki – WONDERFUL, DELICIOUS, always fresh and yummy food, true ?przysmaki?! Although the Deli and the imported items are a bit overpriced. When comparing items to the east coast where deli?s as this one are found on each and every corner, you?re use to buying $3 chocolate bars. Where here, unless you?re willing to dish out at least $6, there will be NO chocolate for you!
Best Polish food in Texas – My wife and I had the Bigos and Mashed Potato meal (excellent). We will be coming back for more. Well worth the drive from Oklahoma......
Something Different – The food was hot, but the service felt "cold" to me! That said, I would still recommend it to anyone that wants to try something a little different. A "hole in the wall" with good food, would be how I would describe this diner.
Authentic and delicious Polish food – FOR YOU is a wonderful little deli and an eatery . The owners are Polish immigrants, who create truly delicious dishes, just the way I remember them from Poland. These ladies cook like you are family. I am always amazed that the spice combinations are just perfect, even in dishes as complex as bigos (cabbage dish, traditionally made for hunting expeditions) "Taste of Poland" is a platter I would recommend for all new comers. My husband, who is Asian still orders every time because of the variety of dishes. They also make amazing soups and deserts. My personal favorite is the cucumber soup and szarlotka (apple strudel). They also make capuccinos. If you have never tried Polish food: this is a great place to try it. The menu is written in a user-friendly way, with description of the dishes in English, so you know what you are getting. The eatery is informal, so not exactly a place for a romantic date, but great place to meet friends. The prices are very reasonable. The staff is helpful and friendly, but not excessively attentive. The waitresses will let you be, if you don't make an effort to flag them. If you know this, you will enjoy the visit. After the meal, we always buy authentic Polish sausage (nice and full of garlic), some Polish deli meats and pierniczki (Polish imbir-bread cookies) at the counter. Zmacznego! (Bon appetite!)
