Without a doubt, Alexandra has the best pierogies in town. This place is a pierogi factory with a tiny storefront outlet along Central, but it seems all the Polish people know about it. Alexandra's is clean, neat, and organized. This is by far the best place to buy pierogi (this is plural spelling in Polish) in the Chicago vicinity. They make them with all the familiar stuffings known to Polish people. VISIT SITE
This is seriously one of the best Polish deli ever! Their deli section is packed with only the best meats and cheeses. Everything it's fresh and priced well below regular chain store delis like Jewel. Service is phenomenal. Don't worry if you're not Polish and don't speak the language. Everyone here knows enough English for you to get your shopping done. The fresh produce is very inexpensive and fantastic quality. VISIT SITE
