    Was expecting more polish type of food. The place needs a remodel. Carpet not what they should be for a food establishment.

  • Authentic, homemade Polish food
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 7/20/2014
    The restaurant was clean and well lit, the staff was very friendly. The selection of Polish food was wonderful - kielbasa with onions, pierogis, tripe, real mashed potatoes, mushroom gravy, ham, tenderloin, pork tenderloin, apple pancakes, potato pancakes, cheese blintzes, and the list goes on. They also had a great selection of fresh cut fruit and salads. I really liked that the food was served hot in small trays rather than large trays that sit out for awhile. They refill the trays regularly with fresh made food. In the age of trendy new farm to table fancy cocktail restaurants, it is great to come back to a low key authentic place like that that is affordable, easy to eat, and delicious! Great for kids as well!

    My husband and I met some friends here based on the Chicago's Best episode in which Red Apple was featured. We were not disappointed! The food was amazing! Very fresh and full of flavor. I even tried the beef tongue (which I swore I would never eat!) and it was delicious! The highlight were the Potato Pancakes. These potato pancakes were so good you didn't really miss apple sauce or sour cream that were absent from the buffet. Other 'must try' offerings are the schnitzel, the chicken and the duck. If you have any room left, the desserts are not to be missed! Just one note is that they do not accept credit cards, so bring cash or you will be directed to the nearest ATM. :-)

    We has a group of about 40, half were children, and we all enjoyed the food. The selection was incredible, and even the most picky kids found food they could enjoy on the buffet. Wish I had a bigger stomach to sample all the options.

    Good Polish food. Choose carefully from the buffet. Some is great, some just so-so, but great selection. Nice, friendly home-style service.

    Good buffet if you've never had polish food and want to give it a try. Terrible service - the waitress didn't bring our drinks until we had finished our first plate. The restaurant is hard to find and the sign upon entering says they accept credit cards, but the fine print says they are accepted at the ATM with an additional surcharge.

    There is so much wonderful food here, at a very reasonable price... I will have to go back to try what I couldn't possibly fit in during my last visit. Pizza with Polish sausage (Sunday special!), cucumber salad, cabbage salad, sauerkraut salad, Golumpki, Cheese Blintzes with fruit compote, polish sausage, roast duck, potato pancakes, dumplings, potato and onion pierogi, and that's just what I managed to try! There were also several chicken dishes, carved roast beef and ham, a few fish choices, and beet salad, among others. There is a full range of dessert options, including hand-dipped ice cream, cheesecake, and assorted pastries. I highly recommend the Coffee Meringue!

    I've been going to Red Apple for over 25 years, starting when I was in high school and visiting Chicago annually with my dad. I've come here when I was in college; I've brought friends over; and it's been fun to bring my sons here, too! So lots of memories for me at this place, but the food has always been really homey, authentic and, like any true Polish dining experience, all you can eat! I love this place!
