  • Helen German Food

    Taking the family up this weekend. Thought it would be fun to take the kids to some good, authentic German place since my in-laws are German. Any recommendations??

      If your in-laws will be with you they will either be a) shocked b) dismayed or c) will laugh their German kiesters off when they see Helen. I'm betting on option c).

      I hope you prepare them for the experience.

        My Father in Law is Austrian and laughs every time I mention I was in Helen. Take them to Huddle House and let them have local food.

          Huddle House. Especially late night. The entertainment value will be off the chain.

            I tend to agree with the folks on here - don't take a German to eat in 'German' restaurant in Helen. Drive down into Cleveland and take them to El Campesino for a Margarita and Pescado Frita.

              Agree 100%. Bodensee is excellent! Many authentic dishes. Some of the best German dishes I've had anywhere. I highly recommend it even to a German native.
              And, no, I don't know the owners. I just really like that restaurant.

                Correction.....they are of German ancestory. Not from the mother land. Bodnese looks like it will work. Thanks!

                  This is good to know. I've stayed at the Helendorf across the street several times for the Hoot on the Hooch and never gave this place two thoughts.

                    been to Helen probably over a hundred times, still have yet to find any "GOOD" food in that town!

                    Plenty of good bee!r but the food........................

                    we did hit one place last weekend called "Catch 22" they call themselves a "Gastropub" tasty but still nothing in town to compete with Asheville.

                      I am a fan of Troll Tavern myself. Wurst and red cabbage is what I usually get. I spent 2 years in Germany and ate lots of German food. The food in Helen is a reasonable facsimile at best but still tasty.

                        Troll Tavern is a family favorite. I like the Nacacoochee Tavern, decent pizza and beer and right across from our friends at the Unicoi shop. Hoffer's for breakfast. Yonah burger headed out is usally a tasty after a day of fishin. Bout it.

                          Poor Helen ...........

                          Poor Helen. Everyone likes to poke fun at her including myself! But. Back when there was a little mountain town where all the work had gone elsewhere and the whole town was on it's way to being a wide spot in the road where an old town used to be. But this little town hitched up their lederhosen, pulled their Tryolian hats down snug and went to work to recreate themselves as "an alpine village". And it worked! So a tip of my funny hat with the shaving brush to the good people of Helen who did not give up and run. There are a lot of communities who could learn a great deal from their experience.

                            Many thanks for the Bodensee rec! Two years in Germany...it took me half a year to discover that German food was not all "grease and potatoes!"

                            There was a good restaurant in an allee downtown, but they closed their doors.

                              I believe my friend Steve Guthrie owned Troll?
