Give me a chance! I moved from Poland in 2005, straight to Denver. Very quick I realize there is not a good place with Polish food. After 17 years I can say I changed the scenery of polish cuisine in Colorado. If you never have Polish food, give me a chance. I know most people don’t like to try something new, but for around $14 you may fall in love with pierogi, kielbasa and more. And most of you will!
