Small, diner-like setting. The food was ok - we had fish & chips and the meatloaf w/ garlic mashed potatoes and dessert. The meatloaf and potatoes were on the bland side. Their blueberry pie and cherry pie were good, although the crust edges were a little tough. Service was very good. Prices very reasonable.

I believe that any restaurant can provide good service when they aren't busy. The standard for me is when they give good service when they are crowded--being "busy" isn't an excuse for poor service. We visited Helen's on Sunday--beautiful day, with several races for charity in town. We stood in line for only about five minutes before a table for... More

I ride with my friend from his house in Weston and we often stop here for lunch. The milk shakes are tasty and good and we split them and one is enough for two. We also split the Corned Beef and Pastrami Combo. The Pastrami was not very lean and a little too fatty for my taste. My friend also... More

My wife and I stopped here for a late lunch after visiting the Minute Man National Historical Park. We weren't expecting much, but this restaurant was surprising with the breath of its menu. Food was good, service prompt and prices were reasonable.

My husband and I were staying at the Colonial Inn with my sister and niece. Since the Inn doesn't serve a full breakfast, we opted to try Helen's. The place was full with only two servers. We only ordered the very reasonably priced Breakfast Sandwich and that took forever to come... 45 minutes from the time we sat down. I... More

Under third generation ownership, this Concord Center gem is always busy serving both locals and tourists. The winning combination of excellent food made with high quality ingredients, an experienced staff with virtually no turnovers, and very reasonable pricing make Helen's the best restaurant value in Concord. I have eaten there more than 100 times and find the consistency of great... More

My wife and I had a sandwich and a wrap in Helen's after a day of sight seeing in Concord. The food was good. Prices are reasonable and the staff was friendly and competent.

Ate here after driving battle road. Good for just a basic sandwich....club or grilled cheese. Nothing fancy. Cash only.

We stopped in Helen's for brunch and were happy with the choices. The staff was pleasant and my Walden chicken salad sandwich was really good. Easy and enjoyable meal.

Looking for somewhere to eat and stumbled on this place. Initially we were hesitant as no alcohol is served but the welcoming and friendly staff swayed us. Our waitress provided helpful recommendations from the menu and the dishes (and drinks) were tasty and reasonably priced. The portions were also a good size. We had cherry pie for afters and this...
