Another great meal at Helga’s. Terrific authentic German food. Bakery shop attached. Friendly servers, seating inside or on patio. Plenty of parking.

My wife and I went here today and had a wonderful dinner. Great selection of beer. The schnitzel was perfect. The attached Deli has a great selection of meats and chocolates.

The beer is decent but you can get German beer anywhere now! Being Austrian, I look for places to get Schnitzel. They have it, but the price is ridiculous for what you get.

I loved the pretzel bread the sandwich was served on. Schnitzel was very tasty! Service was attentive. Prices were reasonable. Desserts looked quite good, but we resisted the temptation! If you are in the mood for German Cuisine, Helga's is a good choice.

It had been 15 years since I'd been to Helga's. I used to live in Denver and this was one of my favorites. I found out that they moved about 10 years ago but it's too far from the old location. The food is still...More

Sounds like a question the restaurant should answer via a phone call.
