The streak continues.
For the sixth consecutive year, readers named Bosak’s Choice Meats, 524 Burke By-Pass in Olyphant, as the makers of the area’s best kielbasa.
Owner Gail Bosak said they were glad to learn they had won again.
“You never take anything for granted,” she said. “We were thrilled and humbled for sure.”
Bosak’s has been in business there for 16 years, selling fresh-cut and ground meats from beef and chicken to pork and lamb. It also does special orders and custom wild-game processing.
The Grill at the Highlands in Archbald has made a big impact in a short time.
Open for about a year and a half at 1 Highland Blvd. in Archbald, the business picked up four Readers’ Choice awards this year: best restaurant, lunch, bartender (Amanda Klem) and chef (Louie Agostini).
“We’re just happy to see that,” owner Ken Powell said. “We’re giving a good product to the customers.”
Powell attributed the Grill’s win for best restaurant to “the quality and the quantity of our food.”
