Helga's German Restaurant & Deli offers customers many tastes of Deutschland, with a selection of meats, cheese, breads and baked goods, as well as European chocolates, candy, music and magazines. Helga's opened its doors in 1989 as a four-table restaurant, and over the past twenty years has grown into a combo deli, bakery and restaurant seating 160 people, with an outdoor patio that adds another twenty seats. The menu features fresh, house-baked pretzels and traditional strudel (apple and cherry are always available), bratwurst from local Continental Sausage, and seven German beers on tap -- perfect to fill the two-liter beer boot. And if dishes like spicy breaded-pork schnitzel fingers with dipping sauce or charbroiled ham hocklets for two served with potato salad and sauerkraut just aren't enough food, the all-you-can-eat schnitzel deal every Wednesday should fill you up.
