I heard about this place one night and ran over the next day! Pierogies fresh made then frozen to take home at my convenience! Homemade Dill and Paprika gravy!!! I only picked up a few things...but I will be back! The woman who was behind the counter not only rang me up but gave me tips on how to prepare everything. PS I hear the liver dumplings are outstanding!
Most important to know here is that this is a retail store and not a restaurant. With that said, Josie has produced a fine selection of pierogi, bread dumplings, soups, dinners, and even a small selection of pastries. The quality of the pierogi and dumplings I purchased were pretty good. The meat pierogi could have used a bit more salt or seasoning but overall I was very pleased. The dough is thick enough to keep the filling in but not so think that it adds a lot of doughy taste. Josie takes care of the customers and I had a nice discussion with her. She said business continues to drop year after year because the strong European population continues moving from the area and they don't drive back to buy dumplings. I suggested she find a way to produce and market to the quickly growing Hispanic population but she stated that she has tried unsuccessfully to gain the Hispanic business and they just don't like her style of food. On a personal note I sure hope she stays in business for a while.
Honestly, I have NEVER tasted bread dumplings as good as Josie's. My family has been buying from this store for years...even before it was passed on to Chris. Same recipe, same fresh goodness. I'm Polish...my husband is Czech...and even though I love to cook & bake, I can NEVER match these dumplings...so why bother! Luckily, Casey's Foods in Naperville also carries them, so I don't have to always make a drive to the store. Josie's even ships them to my kids in CA. Seriously, give them a try! You won't be disappointed. (Buy them pre-sliced for easier prep). (& big YES too for their potato dumplings, filled dumplings & pierogis!!) 5 STAR YUMMY!!!

Out of towner 1st time ordering here. Loved it - great thin crust pizza and the taste was great.
We saw this place featured on Chicago's a Best and it did not disappoint. I enjoyed their crust, very thin and flavorful. The sauce was bold, no hint of the sweetness of most chain places. The cheese was very nice and there was plenty of it. I liked the fact that it was not an overly greasy pie like I have had at many local places with thin crusts. We will definitely give it another go.
I ordered a large sausage pizza (well done) for me and my wife. We finished it feeling full. The wait for delivery took awhile (about an hour and 30 minutes on a Thursday) but it is pretty darn good. I'm still debating if I like this or one of their competitors the best for this area but nonetheless in my top 2. Sausage pieces were nice and Big. Definitely will try again to see if delivery doesn't take as long.
