What this iconic restaurant in Norwood Park lacks in limited hours (it’s open Friday through Sunday) it makes up for in having an “endless” $32.99 buffet where you can theoretically eat 67 cheese blintzes. The buffet has everything from Polish schnitzel to kartacze, along with soups and ice cream (but those are served at the table). The Red Apple has been around since 1984 and looks like it. Legend has it, some people have been eating the same buffet plate since then and just never left.
