When did you move to League City?

Six years ago, I left Poland and moved to Texas. I quickly decided to open a Polish restaurant to teach people about Polish food and Polish culture. We decided League City was the perfect place and we opened our doors in May of 2016.

What do you want people to know about the Pierogi Queen?

We are family-owned and our food is homemade, every day from scratch. Everything is fresh. We do not use canned or frozen food nor preservatives.  The Pierogi Queen is the only Polish restaurant in the entire Houston-Galveston area.

Tell us about some of the accolades the Pierogi Queen has achieved in the short time it has been open.

In 2016 we came in 9th place for "best newly opened restaurants in Houston."  The following year we were reviewed by Alison Cook in the Houston Chronicle.  In 2017 and 2018 we made the list of 100 top restaurants in all of Houston. I hope these achievements speak for themselves. We only serve real homemade food.

What do you like to do in your spare time? 

I don’t have much free time, but when I do, I like to get some fresh air and visit our local parks. One of my favorites is Walter Hall Park. Since I am a cook, I also like to explore the city for all kinds of different restaurants. Food is a strong passion of mine.

What’s your favorite place to eat in League City?

Main Street Bistro, Malay Malay, and Bebu Asian Kitchen.

Describe League City in three words:

Home; friends; peace.
