Schnitzel, Schnitzel and more schnitzel.

We have been going to Uwe's for years. My wife is from Schleswig-Holstein and knows German food. That is why the Schnitzel und Warsteiner is the normal order, always good always plenty. Good people, good service so why not.

My wife and I went here based on the reviews we saw online. I love German food and am always willing to look for good German food. We ordered schnitzels and the meat appeared to have been of the prebreaded frozen variety, the sauces had very little flavor and the vegetables were atrocious(canned). We will not be returning sadly.

I used to have a vendor fly from New York city to Colorado Springs on "business" since I was his customer. But his real purpose was to eat at Uwe's which has marvelous German food. We are especially partial to the Jaegerschnitzel with mushroom sauce, but everything we've had was delicious - Roulade, Sauerbraten, Wiener Schnitzel, etc. (Portions are huge!)... More

Since leaving Germany, I've sought out an authentic German restaurant to satisfy my craving. Uwe's is it. Gets crowded, so a reservation is almost required. Food is excellent and the service is great. Definitely not fast food. Expect to take your time eating and enjoying it.

Most delicious, authentic German food ever! Be sure to call for reservations because even in the middle of the week at noon, the wait will be an hour (but sooo worth waiting for!)

Nice small restaurant that made you feel like you were eating in a German home with the relatives. Portions were just the right size and prepared to perfection. Large selection of appropriate beers to choose from.

My family enjoyed their food and we cleaned our plates. Service was quick and the waitress even allowed my daughter to practice ordering in German. The cost is cheaper than what I expected as the site shows $$. Go and enjoy!

An absolutely great German restaurant. Food just like my mom used to make me. On my visit I had the roulade. It was tender and very flavorful. With it I had the potato dumplings, red cabbage and side orders of sauerkraut and hot German potato salad. They all were very, very good. My wife had the sauerbraten and raved about... More

We went to Uwe's Avery long time ago, and continued to go when we were in town. Now, living in the area but further away, we go when we can and always leave with a smile on our face and competely stuffed with great German food.

Another fantastic German Restaurant in a town that knows German food because of the large military population. A smaller location and a little tough to find if you aren't familiar with this town, it is DEFINITELY worth searching for. Set your GPS and tune up your appetite. You won't be disappointed. If this place has a heavy local German clientele,... More
