I recently arrived in New York from South Africa and have been craving a real "home-cooked" dinner that includes vegetables. Teresa's has finally given me that. Mon-Thur they have a dinner special for $13.95 that is a 3-course meal plus tea/coffee. I had the roast chicken main with beets & mashed potato and it was superb. The atmosphere is a little too bright and they have the radio playing instead of some nice background music and the service was a little slower than at most restaurants (we only received our wine with the entree even tho we ordered it right at the beginning) but the food makes up for all of that in a big way. To have real vegetables with a meal was fantastic. And to be offered gravy for the mash! The chicken was succulent and flavourful and cooked to perfection with crispy skin. I will definately be going back there!

I either go or order from Teresa's 1/week because the food is great as is the value. I highly recommend their white borscht soup and their pierogies. However, the service is not good. When you eat in it takes forever to get your food and the check. When you order, they're rude and rush you off of the phone. So weigh eating here- great food but subpar service.

you can always expect and receive fresh tasty food at teresa's. it's a great neighborhood "diner", only it's several notches above a diner. i love this place!

I've eaten in at Teresa's before and always loved the food. I decided to order delivery on a busy Saturday night and although the delivery time was twice what had been estimated, I got my food within an hour and was very pleased. The chicken stroganoff is delicious (I recommend getting mashed potatoes instead of the noodles) and the perogies are always delicious (better if they're boiled vs. fried).

The value easily makes up for the hot and cold service. I have never had bad food here in three years. Even the more adventurious things I order always surprise, duck, rainbow trout when they have it, stuffed cabbage, each one is delicious (as are the classic Polish dishes) as are many of the home-made desserts. Now the service is hot and cold but never rude, any problems I have had are, in my estimation, due to language differences and a good faith attempt to rectify any mistakes is normally made. That said the brunch service is sloooooooooow as can be. Now maybe they are trying to be nice and let people sit, a curteosy so far removed from NY culture that maybe I just don't know that I am being afforded a rare luxury. On the other hand 2hrs+ in a diner atmosphere (bright and clean, nothing against the aesthetics, esp. outside in Spring/Summer) for some eggs is a bit much IMO. All in all, the food + value (cheapest on Montague IMO) + variety makes this a winner if you can put up with some service flaws. Soups are good (peppery in some cases but I like that), salads are big, fish/meat dishes are good and phenomenal value. Honest home cooked food, a rare commodity.

I'm Polish and I love their food! BETTER than mother makes (sorry mom). She eats there too. LOL My Polish friends love it, my husband, his mother & grandmother... We all love their food! Duck is yummy, so is the salmon. Pierogi, Nalesniki, beef goulash, beef stroganoff are just like homemade. Their soups are rich, thick and hearty - especially the barley soup. Really warms you up in the wintertime. Deserts are good but let's face it in the Polish kitchen the main meal is the highlight. Desert is an afterthought. The service is good and gets better if you speak Polish : )

The perogies are delicious. The rest of the menu is definatly inexpensive. THe service can be standoff-ish but it not rude at all. Definatly recommend.
