Polanka is a wonderful addition to the restaurant choices in Glenwood Springs.
The Combo meal is excellent, as well as the Potato Pancakes and save room for the Cheese Blintz!! we have eaten there 4 times in the last 2 weeks. Concerning the review from MizzzRu, they need to give it a real try!! the place is not fancy but that is what gives it a "gem in the rough" feel, open kitchen, steamy windows, Polish TV on the tube. The prices are very reasonable! we fed 5 hungry adults for about $66, and left very full.
So nice to have some ethnic diversity in the area.

We had 3 orders of pan fried pierogis for supper one night...really delicious! The restaurant is not fancy at all...but the food is quality. Would like to return to have the pork cutlet and sauerkraut dish that two ladies from Denver were raving over.

Yes, you may have to wait a bit to get your food, but you get it made fresh to order. How great is that! Real home cooking served by a motherly owner/chef. So mind your manners and savor the authentic flavors. This place is a gem.

All cooked on premises by Polish Mama, incredibly fresh. Best bigos (hunter's stew), pierogis, pork & chicken cutlets, stuffed cabbage - mouth watering and great prices. Very informal. Open for lunch & dinner except Sundays.

We were apalled by the treatment we received. After we already ordered our food, the lady-owner apparently realized how much she hates Russians and Russia, despite the fact that this is United States already and we are in our 20-s, and no we don't know much about Russian - Polish politics, and we are normal friendly people on vacation, not knowing what to respond to her attacks on our government, or discuss it in such aggressive manner. It turned out she was pro-nazi during Soviet era and expressed how much she hates Russia and its government. she even turned on some Polish tv episode about it. Now, that was AFTER we already ate, and gave her compliments on cooking. I have never experienced such hatred based on my nationality ever before and sure didn't expect to see it in America, in a restaurant, where I just paid for my meal. If she's is so filled with hatred and political issues, she should have told us right when we came in, or maybe put a sign up... Like "select nations serviced only" or "former nazi welcome". We left feeling awful, how could people like this run hospitality businesses, so much anger! I hope there was no poison in that food...
