Tatra's: "Polish buffet-CLOSED" Top 5 Page for this destination Tatra Inn-CLOSED Tip by Dabs

Tatra Inn-CLOSED, Chicago: 2 reviews and 1 photos

November 2006 update, read on Chowhound that this location is closed but that they were looking for another location

We went here with some VT friends on Saturday 10/25/03. Our dining experience started with a choice of soup (mushroom or chicken noodle) and a choice of several appetizers, among them fried shrimp or a New York Strip steak (very huge portions!). Then it is on to the buffet which is filled with everything from salads to pierogi to carved meat.

The lady at the buffet line carving the meat encourages you to try a little of everything, be careful though, the food is very, very filling and it is easy to pile way too much on your plate.

Thanks to fellow VTer rmdw for introducing us to this one!

Favorite Dish: In addition to the tasty meat pierogis on the buffet, they also served us fresh made to order pierogis, we tried the cheese, potato and sauerkraut. The turkey schnitzel was good as was the potato pancake (with a little apple sauce and sour cream).

The blueberry blintz for dessert was quite good. I didn't have any room left to try anything else but there were several other dessert choices.

Address: 6040 S. Pulaski
Price Comparison: about average
Directions: By car: From the south or north, take I94 to Garfield Blvd. and go west. Turn left on Pulaski, Tatra's is on the right about 7-8 blocks south of Garfield.

Alternatively you can also take 59th Street but it is a little less traveled than Garfield Blvd.
