Food was only average for the price. No bread is served with the dinners. The atmosphere is like a visit to Germany, though,

It only took me 10 minutes to get to Helga's from Gateway. Worth the trip. 7 German beers on tap. Wurst, schnitzel, spatzel - all fantastic. Good service. Thursday is all you can eat schnitzel, so it was busy. Live music too!

Helga's has been a surprise. This is a German style bar, offering a good variety of beers. Different sizes are available (1/4, 1/2, 1 liter, approx 3-4, 7-8 and 13-15 dollars respectively). The tables outdoor makes Helga's the perfect place for a refreshing German beer...More
