Note: Bobak's has recently split into several separate companies, legally unrelated to one another, with new names. Questions of product quality, brand names and logo usage seem to be at the core, though, Chowhound.com speculates it runs deeper.

Our recommendation is to skip Bobak's, and all the companies involved the lawsuit, and, instead bring your business to Bende Hungarian Grocer (Vernon Hills, IL and Glen Ellyn, IL locations, as well as mail order). This is what we will be doing.

Attempts to substantiate information left us confused and unwilling to support litigatory chaos or presume the quality we learned to love several years ago remains. As the dust settles, we will try to reconsider each location on its own merits.

(Our mini- review is of the Naperville location which has apparently changed hands. Please call to confirm product line, times and availability.)
Fresh Food Marketplace isn't a Hungarian-focused grocery store. Rather, it has a pan-Eastern European aim. Many of their customers are Polish, but Hungarians in the area are flocking in increasing numbers as they discover Milka, teli sausage, paprika, and many favorites. Unique about Fresh Food Marketplace is that they also offer standard American products, like milk, bread and cereal. As a result, people are accidently finding new treats.

Also, Fresh Food Marketplace has a buffet-style restaurant where you can have a hearty meal at an inexpensive price ($10 or so ought to do it).
