A friend of mine was telling me about Uwe's German Restaurant in Colorado Springs, and while we were there, we thought we would give it a try. The restaurant is a little gem in the middle of Colorado Springs. We were greeted by a friendly waitress that seated us right away. The menu has plenty of things to choose from(sauerbraten,... More

The best German food in town!!! It doesn't have the ambiance of the "other" German restaurant, but it makes up for it in better quality and quantity of food. Compare and you'll never go back!

We love this restaurant! Great service, delicious food! I went with some friends for a birthday get-together, and it was amazing, so I took my family back. The server suggested something great for the kids, and they finished their plates. We will be back time and again! Oh, and on Saturday nights they have wonderful live German music!

food is good solid German food, with large portions (you can order 1/2 portions o many items) lunch specials are very reasonable. most of the staff is German speaking as are many of the regulars. I particularity like their schnitzels and the Fish lunch special. Red cabbage is terrific as are the spaetzle and other sides. Sauerbraten, bratwurst, pork chops,... More

Our visit to Uwe's for German food was good, but not great. We had lunch and enjoyed sauerbraten and the fish special. The food is authentic and reasonably priced. The service was very good, fast and efficient. The restaurant is clean but worn and could use some updating. Located east of the downtown area near the US Olympic Training Center.

Unlike many of the other reviewers my family roots are not deeply German. Yes, the location is not the best. However I did find the restaurant comfortable. The staff, beer and food were all fine.

We have been eating here for 20 years. It is the best real German restaurant in town. I lived in Germany for 9 years and this restaurant comes as close as you can get to the real deal. I've never had a bad meal and the people are always very friendly. The portions are large and the salad is wonderful.... More
