About Helga's German Restaurant & Deli
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!

Helga's German Restaurant & Deli Ratings and Reviews
Unfortunately management misjudged the turnout for the day after Christmas and staffing was inadequate. The kitchen ran out of some sides and substituted yams (sweet potatoes) without asking the patron. The hostess was filling water glasses, bussing tables, fielding and reacting to requests from patrons while the wait staff, presumably stretched thin, were infrequently seen.
On the plus side, the food was authentic, and tasty, the hostess was athletic and our waitress was able to diplomatically take care of an issue one of our party had with her lamb chops.
This was our first visit to the new location. We will return again to see if the understaffing was a peculiarity of the day after Christmas.
We had a wonderful time at Helga's. The food was authentic German and was delicious. We enjoyed the beer sampler and were hard pressed to pick a favorite because they were all so good! The staff was friendly, helpful and attentive. We will definitely go back. We also ordered food from Helga's for an Oktoberfest party that we hosted and the guests were blown away by the food. Thank you Helga's for making our party exceptional!
First visit. The food was very good and definitely filling -- almost too much! One could make a meal out of the appetizer and soup course, which was goulash, but then the entree would be missed!
Our server was attentive and knowledgeable. He was also well-mannered, which was a nice touch.
It is a keeper! We will come back.
The food at Helgas is the usual, fantastic! There is no place like this for great German food. The night we visited there was an accordion player playing an appropriate style of music who was great. Shortly thereafter was an Elvis impersonator. No offense, but this was completely out of place and not very enjoyable to listen too. The volume rose to a point we could hear one another and we left. I will certainly be returning to Helgas but I will watch out so I don't have to listen to "entertainment" like that again.
We went to Helga's with out of town family. Started out with pretzels and a platter of German beers. The beers were very good and the pretzels were great. When we ordered the service was extremely slow. It took 1 1/2 hours to get our food. At one point we didn't see our waitress for 25 minutes. We have been to Helgas a number of times and it is always slow. This was ridiculous. The food was ok. Overall we were disappointed with the experience.
Helgas served authentic German cuisine, nothing fancy, but good selections of usual German fare. The German beer selection was great, and the atmosphere is appropriate for the theme. We had a great dinner and will be returning when we are in the area. The schnitzel, spaetzli and sauerkraut were all great, like being in Germany.
Colorado host Oktoberfest statewide. Generally the local enthusiast enjoys moderate ethnic German food for a few weeks.
This is a wonderful authentic German Experience! I was extremely pleased to visit this fun dining and musical experience. Worth the drive.
We live 8 hours away but visit this area a few times a year. We ate here w/ friends & family a couple of years ago. We wanted a fun & tasty meal for our dating anniversary so we made a repeat visit w/ our daughter & son-in-law . Still great service & wonderful German food!
Wanted to have some curry wurst and Helga's has the real deal. My wife had a great Reuben for her lunch. Server was friendly and attentive. Decor was comfortably "German". Took some streudel home that was made on-site and delicious. It was our first time but I'm thinking we will drive up there monthly or so. Their menu and the food coming out of the kitchen invites more visits.
My husband and I were driving home from the airport and didn't want to sit in traffic on 225 so we stopped here for dinner. I'm so glad we did because it was amazing! The beer flight was great and I love German food. We don't live anywhere near this restaurant, but I'll for sure make the drive back to go there again.
Helga's was a delightful experience and had a nice authentic feel to it. Huge liters of beer and a nice variety of German dishes. They even offer all you can eat specials certain days. I opted for the duck special with the sauté mushrooms and the sauerkraut. Everything tasted very good. Plate presentation was a little sloppy but other than that it was quite nice.
Definitely try it out in Aurora
