Awesome! By far one of the best meals I have ever had! The combo features the best Eastern European dishes on one plate, (Kielbasa, sauerkraut, pirogies, and a cabbage roll), was very reasonably priced ($12), and filled me up...each bite got a verbal "mmmmmmm!" from both of us...this is homemade food at it's very best! Not fancy, and you get... More

Go for the absolutely outstanding pierogis, stuffed cabbage and kielbasa. Huge portions, everything full of flavor and wonderfully cooked. If you don't like the plain tables and chairs, take your food home. There were two tables full when we arrived but by the time we left, about 7 P.M., there was a line out the door. Everyone enjoyed their food.... More

Polanka is not a restaurant to visit for its ambiance. We came in for dinner and were greeted with harsh lighting, a few tables and supplies adorning the counterspace. Ah, but the food! It's hard to beat the variety plate, with stuffed cabbage, kiabasa, potato pancakes and more. As others have reported, the food itself is very good and served... More

Wonderful aromas when you walk in. Genuine Poles working the grill. Eastern European customer service, and loved it! Perogies were great and the breaded chicken cutlet sandwich was Fantastic. May not be healthy, but good for the Soul. Lucky to have in Glenwood Spgs.

Walked in, they were out of perogies, no waitress, uh oh. But then the food came, complete with the friendly service of the cook/proprietress. Delicious, fresh, great meal.

Wonderful Polish food and large portions. Good location near the main hotel and Springs. Atmosphere was a bit plain. The prices and food quality was excellent.

It is hard to please a Pole with Polish food abroad, but the pierogies, stuffed cabage and pork chop were like home made. Wish the inside was a bit more inviting, but it is the food you are after in a place like this so we were happy.
