Small and unassuming front, fantastic food. Laid-back. If you are looking for good cooking, this is it. If you are looking for table-side pampering, keep walking. Great food. Tasty. This is an A+ place. Family run business, when in Glenwood Springs, this is a must.

Ok the bad, there was no thought put int the decor. Tables and chairs are simple and worn, all drinks are bottled and stuffed in a cooler. The place is not much to look at. Counter service and the menu is pretty limited. The GOOD / GREAT: The food the food is great. Cooked from scratch for every order, with... More

This was my birthday meal while on vacation, and it was the best! We were a little uncertain at first because the customer service seemed iffy. But you just need to give them a minute to warm up, plus they're super busy cooking everything from scratch. Walk in, place you order at the counter, and seat yourself. They'll call your... More

I would have never expected this. It was like going to family dinner. It's a mom and daughter operation, and they treat you like family. Place was packed on a Tuesday night. Wife and I each had combo platter with 6 pierogis, 1 cabbage roll, 1 sausage and sauerkraut. Kids really enjoyed their chicken sabdwich. A perfectly executed meal in... More

You could easily miss this restaurant due to its location, and parking is difficult. The restaurant is very small and nothing special, but the food is home cooked and flavorful. My husband had the pork chop dinner which he felt was nothing special. The kids ate kielbasa with pierogis and cleaned their plates. I agree with an earlier review that... More

Delicious food! There is not much of a selection. They have a combo meal for $11 with enough food (cabbage roll, perogis, and sausage) for three people.

Food was awesome! The borscht was the best I've ever had! Pierogies were delicious, as well as the cheese blintzes. Wanted to come back the same night for more! Would die for their borscht recipe!

This place serves authentic, home-style Polish/Eastern European food. The pork sandwiches were amazing, huge portion of tender pork steak but our favorite thing was the apple blintzes. We actually went back for more blintzes that evening. Great service!

You are only paying for the food and not the atmosphere here. But the food is heavenly. Pierogies, potato pancakes and apple blintzes. What a lovely meal. If I lived here I would be back every week. Parking is kind of tricky as the restaurant is on a very busy corner.
