GREAT FOOD

If you love good hearty polish food this place is worth it. From the stuffed cabbage, pierogis, and the cheese blintzes the food is fantastic. This was probably our cheapest meal the entire time we were at Glenwood springs. It was a short walk across the (harrowing walk - really watch yourself... read more

When you first walk up to Polanka, you might not understand how they are rated so high on here. It's next to a pot shop...on a very crowded, hard to access corner. It's very basic with no ambiance. It's small. There are only five tables. BUT THE FOOD IS SO GOOD!!!!! This is legit grandma-style home cookin'. We went in... More

Wow, the food was almost better than my Babci used to make. Authentic and served with a smile. The sour kraut was my favorite. Try everything....I did. I waddled back to my hotel with a big smile. The legal weed shop next door had nothing to do with my appetite. Don't be fooled by the simple, understated, "dining room". Sure,... More

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.
