J.Betski’s Restaurant was recently mentioned in Details magazine as one of the top up-and-coming Central European restaurants in the country. Owner John Korzekwinski’s German and Polish heritage combined with Chef Todd Whitney’s creative use of fresh local ingredients “seduces hip locals with plates of pretzel-crusted pork tenderloin with beer jus and sauerkraut,” according to the popular men’s magazine. Also be sure not to miss the beef and spinach pierogies and fresh kielbasa.

J. Betski’s is located at Seaboard Station and is open for Lunch Tuesday through Saturday and Dinner Monday through Saturday. Reservations: (919) 833-7999.

    A very good restaurant….very good appetizers and entrees, resonable priced; but it is a loud and noisy place

    Can’t think of a restaurant that deserves more accolades. One of the best places in Raleigh.

    I love this place.  Well deserved attention.  Never had something I didn’t love.  And with the small plate selection they have, you can get a great meal for a reasonable amount of money.  The service is excellent too.  Unless (and this is my one and only qualm) you’re getting waited on by the bartender, who is horrible (I’m thinking of the one with curly hair, don’t know if there is another).  That’s the one thing they’re missing, is a good bartender with good beer knowledge.

    I hope we’re not thinking of the same bartender, because the one there I am thinking of is probably my favorite in Raleigh.

    Well, that’s good news.  Granted, I’m thinking “how many Central European restaurants ARE there?”.  ;-)  Hopefully, their continued success would bring more to the area.

    It’s a great place…only thing I can think of to improve it would be bigger dining area and perhaps add a vegetarian entree to the menu.

    Now that I think of it, I do remember another bartender from my first visit, and he was excellent.  Knowledgeable and attentive.

    Coming from the midwest this place reminds me of home. Dark and small with sausages and beer, perfect.

    Really, you don’t love the curly haired bartender.  That is my main reason for going.  He makes the very best drinks…
    Acutally i also love the food.  The size of the resturant is just right.  I always feel as if i am amoung friends.
    Don’t miss it!!  And love the curly hir bartender!

    I’ve never seen borscht here, and I’ve been looking.  Perhaps I missed it.  They have an onion soup that is excellent.
