One commenter, Justin said, "Smart idea. Easier to identify, Good luck."  The official colors of Poland are white and red, incase you didn't know.

Edward commented, "A much better name to go with the menu."

I'm sure the owners are trying to attract more customers by simplifying the name and using colors to make the restaurant easy to identify. Lawrence Township has a large Polish population.

The restaurant is a stand alone building near Starbucks in between National Pools and Spas and City Electric. Most recently it was Mehek Indian Restaurant, but if you've been in the area for a long time, you may remember it being a Bob's Big Boys.
