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!

We have been to many so-called German restaurants in the United States since my wife is German born and raised. Helga's has been the best experience so far. We loved browsing the little store in front of the restaurant. We ordered a platter so we could try different meats and side dishes. The food was very good and the staff... More

I often ate at the old Helga's location on Peoria. The food at the new location is just as good if not better, plus the building is newer, and the restaurant is much more clean and modern. It was a little difficult to find the new location the first time, so allow a few extra minutes to get there. But... More

Came here for a late Mother's Day for my Mother-in-Law. We thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere, the food, the deli and the service. Can't believe I didn't know this was here! Will definitely return! Great German Food!

We visited for my brother's birthday with a large crowd and had a great time! There was an entertainer walking around singing and later a live band. The food was wonderful and the beer delicious, plus the staff was very helpful and friendly! Thanks for making it a special night!

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 during a warm sunny day. There is a selection of German food too (starting from... More

Good German food! The last Friday of the month is especially fun with the Polka Band playing and everyone singing.

My family and I came to your restaurant today for the first time. The food was excellent, however, we ordered half portions of our meal and received full portions. We were unaware -- never having eaten there before -- that the portions we received were full portions. The waitress charged us full price and when we confronted her with the... More
