This little restaurant offers many diner specialities and they also have Jewish items on their menu. I ordered their stuffed cabbage in the sweet and sour sauce and a cheese blintz. I love cheese blitzes, one of my favorite memories growing up was the cheese blitzes we had at the Harvey Hotel for Sunday brunch. This cheese blintz blew away that memory. The crepe was thick and fresh with a bit of powdered sugar sprinkled on top, and included little cups of apple sauce and sour cream on the side. Delicious! The stuffed cabbage was filled with ground beef and spices and cooked in a sweet and sour sauce. Overall, for two appetizers, they filled me up nicely. I want to come back again and try some more of their Jewish specialties. They have specials from 2:30-5:30 with a discount menu. They also have a menu full of different hashes made with meatloaf, chicken, potatoes, and eggs. The waiter recommended the Reuben sandwich as well, so many different reasons for me to go back and try something different.

2nd visit: Ordered their special after 2:30.  They had goulash soup to start, and rotisserie chicken with mashed potatoes, brown gravy and carrot tzimmes.  The goulash soup was hearty, tomato based with beef, potatoes and tomatoes.  The rotisserie chicken was very moist, and the carrot tzimmes were mashed carrots with brown sugar and raisins.   A wonderful comforting meal all for under $10.  Great, clean place to have a decent sized meal.  They do seem to put time and attention into quality as well as reasonable prices.
