I have eaten at polanka many times, making a point to go everytime I'm in glenwood springs, it used to be one of my all time favorite restaurants. During my last visit I noticed that prices were substantially higher than in the past. Then came the food. The pierogis which used to be big pillows of cheese and potato heaven... More

I grew up eating cabbage rolls & love Polanka's. The perogis are also tasty as is just about everything on the menu! It's not a romantic type of place but more of a funky family place that you shouldn't miss if you're into this type of ethnic food. I will say, even my Irish husband loves it!

Great local hole in the wall vibe. Owner Jerry has a warm funny personality and the food was out of this world. Kielbasa was our favorite. I'd recommend highly.

My SO's family loved eating here. They are partially Polish so they love eating authentic food like this. My SO wants to go back for their pierogis and I'll happily much on kielbasa.

The food was very flavorful and the staff was incredibly nice. My husband and I split the combo plate and it was plenty. We will definitely visit again!

This restaurant is a little gem in Glenwood Springs. Excellent Polish food. We ordered the combo meal that came with a little of everything, and highly recommend that.

We have passed by this place far too many times. Its location is a little tough to get in and out of. Finally we stopped in for dinner. Very delicious & traditional polish food. You will not be sorry.

Growing up in a Polish family from Buffalo, NY. I'm always craving some good home cooking. This family own business is a Gem, in the heart of Glenwood Springs! So welcoming, great food had the Kielbasa Sandwich on rye, with Pierogi and potato pancakes. I felt like I was back home, the food was amazing we went twice while visiting... More

Many folks had told us about this restaurant, but we'd never taken the time to find it, when in fact we'd driven past it about a dozen times. So before one of afternoons of playing Santa at Adventureland Park, we decided to have lu nch here. Both of us tried something different to give the place a quality test, mine... More

The food here was great and it feels like a mom and pa shop . The pierogies here were really good and had lots of flavor. I got the Combo Meal and my girlfriend got a few potato and cheese pierogies. The cabbage roll was really good and the kielbasa was super yummy. We wanted to try the Potato Pancakes... More
