Helga’s was created in 1989 as a mother-daughter venture with a small, four-table restaurant. After spending their childhood in Germany, siblings Herbert and Helga have continued the tradition of their mother, Berta. Today, Helga's has expanded but has not departed from its humble beginnings, gathering a large loyal following of wonderful customers. Helga, Herbert and family maintain a warm and friendly environment where you can sit down to an authentic and delicious home-style German meal with family and friends.

In the true spirit of a family-owned restaurant, Helga and Herbert are directly involved in ensuring the satisfaction of each and every one of their customers. Please do not hesitate to ask for either Helga or Herbert or approach them when you see them in the restaurant. They are happy to offer menu or deli suggestions, or even take a moment to just stop by and chat with you in German or English.

Welcome and we look forward to seeing you soon!

Excellent German food! Went with a friend from Schweinfurt, Germany and she was very impressed with their great food. The menu offered a great variety of choices and the servings were very generous. Everyone in our party took some home with them.

Food was very tasty and authentic. Our waiter did an excellent job explaining what the different items were and offering his opinion on what to get for side dishes.

Excellent food and excellent service. We have dined here several times before and this time we brought some friends from Colorado Springs, where they have a very popular German restaurant, to join us. They were as impressed with this restaurant as are we. However, they had the same observation as we have made in that they should serve bread/rolls with their salads. We were told they sell rolls in their shop but they get delivery only two days a week and the rolls sell as soon as they arrive so are never available by the weekend. It seems this is a mistake and frustrates the patrons.

This was my first German cuisine dining experience and it was really good. Everything was delicious and brought out in a timely manner. The servers gave us a lot of attention and we’re helpful while ordering. Will return when I’m back in Denver.

The person seating people was very slow. Once we got to a table, we sat there for 20 minutes without anyone looking at us. I finally went back to the front to ask the girl to tell whoever the server was that our table belonged to them. I was ready to walk out. Once we got the server situation sorted, everything was fine. I love the food.

This was a great meeting spot for us. We lived in Germany for a long time, and the restaurant brought back so many wonderful memories. The food was fantastic, especially the pretzel and apple strudel. We'll be back again.

The food was excellent. In had the pork jager schnitzel and it was wonderful. My wife had the sauer braten, which was also excellent. The sides were quite nice too although we wish the salads would have been accompanied by bread, especially pretzel rolls. When I asked if they had any pretzel rolls I was informed the restaurant did not but that perhaps the deli would have some and to check with them. I did, and they didn't. The restaurant is a little difficult to find but worth the effort. We will be coming back.

This was our first time dining here as it is about thirty miles from our house and we were very happy with the experience. The food and the service were very good. I had the pretzel encrusted pork schnitzel and my wife had the wiener schnitzel. Both were excellent. We especially liked that we had a huge choice of sides to choose from with each entree. We were told we had a choice of salads included and chose the beet salad, which was excellent, but were surprised there was an extra charge of $1.50 each with no explanation. The sweet Riesling wine was one of the best we have ever had. The German Chocolate Cake was good but the slice was much smaller than what you usually get for $7.95. All-in-all we now know what to expect and we will be back.
