Pulaski Deli

Grocery Store | Polish
One of the best

Most eaters come to Myrtle Beach for seafood served in big, boisterous restaurants. Pulaski Deli has none of that. But if you crave something different — authentic Old World food in a modest setting — put this hospitable little treasure on your good-eats itinerary.

Just off Kings Highway, it is a small place with only a handful of tables and a minimal menu that includes classic Polish meals as well as New World deli subs and sandwiches.

Do have kielbasa, either in a long sub sandwich with kraut and mustard or as part of a Polish Sampler plate that gets you some of all the signature dishes. It’s a taut, succulent sausage cross-hatched and grilled so its edges turn crisp.

Also on the sampler plate are a cabbage roll packed with ground pork and rice and glazed with sweet tomato sauce; a serving of hunter’s cabbage stew; a trio of buttery pierogi; dazzling-tangy sauerkraut; and a slightly sweet dill pickle. What a kaleidoscopic meal!

Much business is take-out, some in large portions for parties, but it’s a pleasure to dine in. Although it’s really just a deli/diner, service is old-fashioned gracious in a way rarely found in modern-day sandwich shops.

While waiting for your meal to be made, it’s great fun to browse store shelves stocked with Polish groceries you never see in ordinary markets. When was the last time you enjoyed Borowiki mushrooms? Refrigerator cases are stocked with Polish beers just right to accompany a Pulaski Deli meal.
