Great Polish food in a simple, no frills setting. The pierogis were outstanding! And the sauerkraut with their own added seasonings was delicious! I would absolutely go back anytime I am in Glenwood Springs. Most friendly people around too!

This Polish food is as good or better than the Polish food I used to eat growing up. The service is kind too.

Must be common for people to do what we did -- get more pierogis. We started with 2 combos for 3 of us because my wife said she wasn't very hungry. Then we got 7 more pierogis !!! Don't forget to ask for sour cream...More

Yes, Polanka's hours are almost "seasonaly" dependent; but, it's really hard to tell if it's open or closed by just driving by. The owner posts her hours on the door, so the only way to tell is by looking at that sign. The... More
