Pierogies first arrived in the United States at the beginning of the 20th Century from Eastern Europe and continued to gain popularity in the following years. Today Pierogies are enjoyed across the nation, especially in North Eastern cities and parts of the Midwest, that's why some call this region the Pierogi Pocket.
