Description: Step into the romantic 'Old World' of the Rhineland river valley in Germany. Experience the enchantment of quaint small towns, vineyards and farmlands as far as the eye can see while majestic medieval castles stand grandly in the distance. Absorb the delicious aromas of hearty, savory food being lovingly prepared in family kitchens sifting through open windows. Welcome to Helga's German Restaurant and Deli. Experience authentic German home-style food and drinks with served with a side of "Old World' charm. 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.

“Great German just pricey ”
Reviewed 19 April 2014 via mobile

An excellent spot for German food just a bit pricey. I would go again just probably not that often. We went for a lunch date and while it's a nice little quaint spot perfect for an occasional lunch I really would have to be craving German food to go more often.

“German Delite.”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

A wonderful, filling and appreciated German dinner. My wife and I go at least 6 times or more a year - first, because I am partial to authentic German food. This is a family restaurant that has been in Aurora for at least 40 years. We have been so lucky that the younger members have stay in the business. The food, and yes German beer, are priced to serve the community. Their Schnitzels, of which they numerous different kinds, are wonderful - mine is the Jager!! Plenty of parking and comfortable, well lit space inside. We also appreciate their small deli and packaged German products that are also available. Good place to get seasonal German treats. They periodically have live German musicians to entertain.

“Really Good German Food”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

Great place to go for traditional german food. Prices are a little high but not unreasonable for the portion size. They have a ham dish that makes you look like Fred Flinstone when you eating it, if you pick it up to eat it. they also have great beers and live music on certain nights.

“The Best German Food!!”
Reviewed 28 March 2014

My husband and I went to Helga's yesterday for lunch after reading all of the reviews. For an appetizer we shared the pretzel with cold cuts. It was so good and plenty big enough to share. For main entrees, I got the Rahm Schnitzel with german potato salad and spatzle and my husband got the Jager Schnitzel with red cabbage and german potato salad. The portions were definitely big enough to share, but they will also do half portions. Everything was amazing!! Itzel was our waitress and she did an fantastic job! I definitely recommend going to Helga's!!!
