SMAK TAK – Polish Restaurant 5/2014

SMAK TAK – 5961 N Elston Ave, Chicago, IL 60646-5504, 773-763-1123

Q-TIPS SAY: A neighborhood restaurant, clean, large servings, not very big restaurant and a good but limited menu. SMAK TAK offers a “Special of the Day” for $15.99 which includes bread, butter, soup, potatoes, meat, salad & dessert. It is a BYOB, which we did not know and no bar. They have one server and, I assume, one cook. Mr. Q started with the Beet Soup and his Entree was the Pierogi – cheese,& potato, sauerkraut, meat, plum. They were good but never got any meat or plum pierogis. Mrs. Q had the Chicken Noodle Soup,(clear not salty broth) her Entree was breaded pork cutlet with mushrooms, potatoes and salad. Mrs. Q says: The sides they offer are potatoes, but only had mashed potatoes and the salad was a choice between cucumbers with sour cream or beet salad. She enjoyed her meal.

PS They seem to not answer the phone when they are very busy – we called to make sure they were open on Memorial Day and no one answered. So we drove by and they were open.
