It's easy to see why our readers chose Polish Village; the food and the atmosphere are so exceptional, we're all willing to wait a spell just to sit down at this eternally popular family spot. During the holidays, they even wrap their paintings on the wall up as if they're Christmas presents. Polish Village remains a great date spot, so long as your date has a genial attitude and the serious ability to pack back an order of pierogi. City Chicken is so delicious here, but we often opt for the Polish combo plate because it can be so hard to choose.
