Good Polish Combo Plate($14.50) with cabbage roll, sausage 'n kraut, periogis. Odd that bread was not included. Finished with two Prune Blintzes($8.50). Good food and a lot of customers, but a little on the pricey side for what is not much more than a Mom 'n Pop diner. NOTE: Their prices have gone up 50% from what is on their... More

Have no experience with eating perogies so I don't know what they should taste like. These perogies were rather bland. Had the applesauce blintzes. They were good. The restaurant has no atmosphere and only 6 tables Parking is limited and with road construction it is difficult to get in and out.

Hopped off I-70 for a quick dinner and happened upon Polanka by chance [and a wrong turn]. I hadn't had Polish food for a long time, so gave it a try. This is the "real deal" cooked before your eyes in an open kitchen. I had the Combo [stuffed cabbage, pierogis, kielbasa and kraut]. Pierogis were over-done to my taste;... More

Low key, not fancy but real good food at a very reasonable price. The Polish grandmother and her family make the food.

This is a staple in my food experience. I grew up in Pennsylvania in a Dutch/Polish immigrant neighborhood with just the BEST food I've had ever. I miss it so much having moved out to Colorado. But the second I found this place I added it to my budget. It NEVER disappoints. Once you get past the cafeteria looking interior... More

On our way from Denver to Crested Butte we stopped by chance at this Polish restaurant in Glennwood Springs. We had Kielbasa sauerkraut and potato pancakes. Everything was very tasty but the sauerkraut was the most remarkable. I've never had sauerkraut this good. The cook said his wife makes it herself. The restaurant itself wasn't much for ambiance but if... More

Authentic Polish food, and is yummy. We got the combo plates and a chicken plate and there was no complaining with my picky eaters! Love to support small family businesses. The place is very casual and small and has an old time diner feel. Will eat there again!
