If I had to pick one word to describe the food at Hubert’s Polish Kitchen, that word would be “hearty.” This is a place to go if you are hungry. Hubert’s offers unabashedly meat-oriented fare with no apologies, and it is tasty fare, indeed.
The proprietor, Hubert, is one of the nicest guys you’re likely to meet. He proudly told me on one of my visits that his food is prepared using recipes that he got from his grandmother. She obviously was a darned good cook! On a typical day you are likely to find some combination of breaded chicken cutlets, kielbasa, different types of stews, pierogi, goulash, Polish cole slaw, mashed potatoes, leek salad, dumplings, and cucumbers and sour cream, among other goodies. The service is fast and friendly, and Hubert just might insist that you give a new concoction a try. After you make your purchase, he’ll ask you to come back and let him know how you liked it.
My typical selection from Hubert’s is the breaded chicken cutlet with mashed potatoes and sliced cucumbers with sour cream. The cutlet is man-sized, well seasoned, tender and juicy. The mashed spuds are excellent, and I usually ask to have a bit of stew poured over the top. With a diet Coke, the price tab comes to about $10 — which is a pretty good deal for a full belly and a happy encounter with the nice folks behind the counter.
