Do you think they would do better if they a bit more fancy with table service? Like change it into more of a dinner spot and have people BYOB and have food servers and what not.

I think her last location really lent itself to being a lunch-focused establishment but now she might be better served changing it up a bit. What do you think?

Cannot possibly reccommend this place enough. The food is the definition of home-made, with lots of care and flavor to spare. Yes, the decor is a little rough but it doesn't look unclean, more like you're walking into someone's kitchen. Frankly, with food like theirs I could care less about decor.

Stuffed cabbage: great flavor and good sauce.

Stuffed mushrooms: Good crust and a great spice mixture.

Beet salad: A must to try. Sometimes she doesn't mention it so you have to specifically ask for it.

Kindelan, they have kasha every day and it's almost as good as my mother's (Kasha was, sadly, the only thing Madam Bug knew how to cook other than Portuguese meatballs). Incidentially, her meatloaf/stuffed mushroom spice mix is almost exactly the same my mother used to make, only properly cooked.

Seriously, I tasted it and two decades of misspent Shabbat dinner meatloaf flashed in front of my eyes.

This place is really a diamond in the rough (only rough to the extent that it's a no-frills, home-cooking kind of place). The food is cheap and just excellent and the lady who works there is so nice. I had the Polish combo which included a ton of kielbasa and saurkraut, pierogies and stuffed cabbage. It's all homemade and delicious.

Please check it out - they could use the business!

Had lunch here about a week ago with Wednesday, Justi, and Mrs. Justi.  Went family style throw down on meatloaf, pierogis, gulash, pork chops, stuffed mushrooms, and sides.

Freakin' great though as I was recovering from food poisoning at the time, was a little put off by the food storage- everything in a steam table in one location and seemed a little close to one another- but again, I'm currently overly sensitive to this issue.

But very fresh, very tasty, very friendly service and we will be back.  Everything was excellent.

Darna: it's because my people spend much of their lives barefoot, so when they discover shoes, it's a party!

RB: i rubbed mine last night to be ready for tonight

Burroughs: Thank you for a country in which no one is free to mind his own business

Tough decision to be made on the way home from work between Sava, the Italian deli and Szechuan Gourmet these days.

What Italian Deli are you referring to?

I'm a little afraid business might worsen as it gets warmer as, at least for me, this kind of heavy, hearty food is more geared to colder weather. I've been five or six times and it's been consistently good. If the pork shoulder's available, give it a try.

I had the stuffed cabbage and pierogies.  Both were excellent.  Yeah,  you can get pierogies in the frozen food aisle at ShopRite but it's not the same.  Sava's makes them fresh and it shows.

When asked how the buisiness is going she replied "I don't know." and "People don't know I'm here because I'm new." which led me to believe things aren't going that great.  If you enjoy the food you should stop back in otherwise we may be having yet another sb conversation as to why it didn't work out.

The appearance of the place could be better.  It kinda looks half finished but don't let that stop you.  It's good homemade food.  I found the selection a bit overwhelming so I picked two random things and as I said before, both were excellent.

The Mrs and I went there Saturday to pick up Kielbasa and pierogis for Easter breakfast.  I could not believe the amout of Kielbasa that we got for $8.  So yummy!

Woodsy,
Thanks for the link.  I wouldn never have figured out they had a website without it. 
I'm definitely a Savas fan.

How is the Kasha at this place? Kasha is a whole grain. Whole Grains are some of the healthiest things you can put in your mouth.


I like kasha too! They sell it by the box, but I didn't see it on the menu:

I don't know why it isn't on the menu but when we went there Monday night it was an option as one of the side dishes.

See related thread at the other place.

Good stuff there. I'm going back on Friday to gather some goodies to bring up to my Polish pop on the occasion of his 85th birthday.

The Mrs. and I picked up dinner from Sava last night.  We shared an order of Hungarian goulash with rice and an order of stuffed cabbage with kraut.  We also ordered 6 pierogis.  The food was excellent, the portions generous, and we could tell that the owner truly put her heart and soul into making the food.  The food was truly delicious and we were stuffed by the end of the meal.  All this for $14!

They have a different special ever night so we will be coming back some Wednesday soon to try their borscht.  I sincerely hope that they make a success of this business as their food is outstanding and their prices are quite reasonable.  And of course it is wonderful to have another authentic ethnic restaurant in JC.

Sava Polish Deli
346 Grove St.
Jersey City

Map it!

Polish Restaurant and deli, serving tasty homestyle Polish food and made to order pierogis.  They also carry a good selection of fresh and smoked Polish sausages and meats as well as a variety of other Polish foods.

Apparently the owner ran a similar restaurant on Newark Ave. near the courthouse for 20 years prior to opening Sava.
