Lovely place to eat with good Food! A taste of Deutchland

The first time we tried this place we loved it! Wonderful German Gasthaus atmosphere, large portions of good food and a cute little store as well. Our second visit this time wasn't quite as good, new waitstaff wasn't as attentive and didn't know what Brotchen was. Still, the food was decent again... read more

Helga's is an Aurora icon. Sadly, though, it was disappointment. The food was so-so, and the service was unmotivated. The owners tack on a 20% service charge to the bill BUT the wait staff don't get it!

I have been to Helga's many times, both lunch and dinner. We were stationed in Germany for several years so I have a pretty good idea what good German food should be. Helga's menu reflects the Rheinland Pfaltz area. Be sure to bring a large appetite since the portions are quite generous. A good choice for an appetizer is the... More

I have never been to Germany but Helga's presents very good meals that appear to be authentic German cuisine. The food is tasty and presented well. Should I visit Germany I would hope to find food this good.

Helga's restaurant is a taste of Germany and having spent 15 years in Germany I can offer an opinion on their food. The menu is very good, Vienna Schnitzel was the best, but there are many German dishes one could feast on. They sell German Bread which we load up on and take home whenever we visit!!!

The "all you can eat pork schnitzel Monday " is not worth it. The portions are very large anyway. They really don't like giving you seconds, and forget asking for thirds!!! The "second" is just another small piece of basic schnitzel, even if your initial one was breaded "it's free, so it's only the basic one", we were told. It... More

Great food and good service!! We had the halve order of wiener schnitzel and it was ample. Even got a free appetizer with the dinner. Also has a deli and bakery where you can pick up delicious goodies!

Food is good. Can be a wait and seating is tight. Friday evening has lively music. Has a deli that we stop in at occasionally for some bake goods. Family atmosphere. Friday evening is busy.

Delicious and friendly! We've enjoyed everything we've ordered here in two visits over the past year. The JagerSchnitzel hits the spot! Large portions, and yummy flavors!
