Today we drove the winding hill up to St. Max Kolbe church in Homestead.
This church has a high concentration of parishioners of Eastern European descent, which in fish fry terms means: haluski. The fish fry menu at St. Max Kolbe is extensive. They serve a huge fish sandwich, available with or without bread; crab cakes; jumbo or popcorn shrimp; linguine with scallops; tuna noodle casserole potato pancakes & lots more.
One of my favorite things about this fish fry is that it is open much later than most. They serve dinner up until 7:00 pm. Since we arrived only about 15 minutes before they shut down, we were about to take some extra things home with us.
I picked at a piece of fish meant for sandwiches, which was yummy. The breading was thin and the fish tastes fresh.
We also tried some jumbo shrimp…
She♥ is a sucker for haluski..
And of course we had to eat some pierogies, which actually tasted right…
Overall, this place never disappoints and its a fish fry we continue to visit year after year. I was even instructed to send Steel Valley residents over to visit the self-proclaimed, “hardest working Hunky” at St. Max – West Homestead Police Chief, John Dindak. He manages to serve up delicious Lenten food and humor at this parish on the hill.Eat in or take out (412) 462-1743
