I'm Hungarian so I'm always somewhat of a skeptic going to a place like this because I'm a tough critic. As soon as the first appetizer came out, I felt like I was back in my Nagymama's (Grandma's) kitchen. The food is totally authentic and...More

People do come to this restaurant, but I don't understand why. I certainly didn't enjoy my meal. The chicken paprikas stew with dark meat consists of two greasy thighs in a watery sauce. The goulash is a little better than that, but nothing special (and...More

Tastes like home. Always stop here for take-out when in need of some delicious comfort food. I've only once eaten at the restaurant and although cute feels a little cold. I prefer to bring the food home.

If you are looking for real, home-made chicken soup from scratch, then this is your place. Steamy hot, loaded with noodles, chicken, and veggies just the way mom used to make. Many, many other places will say they have home-made soup, but what you are...More

The real deal, folks.

Authentic Hungarian food just like my Mom and Grandmother made. Chicken paprikas was second only to my Mom and Grandmother's. Seriously, if your craving Hungarian food (or if you've never had Hungarian food), come to Barabra's. This is the best in home cooking, with a...More
