I have been going to Las Vegas for years and Cafe Heidelberg had always been on my list of places to check out but I never got around to it until my most recent trip and we visited on Friday 5/22/09.

Firstly, this is on East Sahara so it is to the right if you are heading towards downtown on Las Vegas blvd. Its kind of a shady looking neighborhood (near the Eureka casino)--not too bad in the daytime but I wouldnt really want to be walking around here at night. It is a place you would probably want to have a car to get to in the first place rather than trying to walk here as its gotta be a good 15-20 minute walk from the intersection of Sahara and LVB. We show up at 11:30-11:45 and it was open but it looks almost more like a German market than it does a restaurant.

The entrance is actually into the German mkt side of the building and you then walk to the left to get to the restaurant section. Very standard German look to the place with blue and white checkered tablecloths and lots of wooden booths and some tables right out front in the window. This is where we decided to sit--right in the window so we had a good view of the whole place.

The beer selection was pretty standard for a German place and they had no draught offerings---bottled only. Pretty standard with Hofbrau, Paulaner, Warsteiner, Ayinger, and Spaten. They had both light and dark beers by these breweries however most of the light ones were weisse beers which I wasnt in the mood for so I opted for a straight Hofbrau lager. It tasted fine and I did have to ask for a glass but I think she was coming over with it anyway--even if I hadnt requested it. The beer tasted fine and I think it was $4.50 which is reasonable.

The food is what makes this place really stand out. We ordered Jaegerschnitzel and Sauerbraten and both were the best I have ever tried. Absolutely fantastic !!! Its as if the food is being made with love by your German grandmother. Just great quality and attention to detail and really text book examples of how these dishes should be made. If I could score it a 6 for food, I would--its that good. The waitress was nice and attentive and we didnt have to wait too long --just the right amount of time in fact for a well made home cooked German meal.

I definitely will be hitting Heidelberg with more frequency on my return trips to Las Vegas. Give this place a shot--you'll be glad you did.

This place is kind of a hole in the wall but it is definitely the best German food in Vegas. I think it has been voted the best german food in town multiple times. It is far superior to the other, more famous, German place in town. They down brew their own beer but they had a lot of good bottles. They had Ayinger, Weihenstephaner, Spaten and more. I had a korbinian. It's nice and quaint inside. There's a little German market when you walk in and the restaurant is off to the side and back. The server we had was a nice old German lady. The food was very good and probably about $20-$25 a plate or so.

If you're wanting some German food while in Vegas this is your place.

This is a German restaurant/bar/deli located about 4-5 blocks off the strip. down a little from the Sahara (near the site of the late "Holy Cow"). GH offers a very interesting selection of German (Bavarian, mostly) beers, such as Ayinger, Paulaner and Spaten. The food is excellent, particularly the spatzle - a type of German noodles, that is hard to find in the USA. Of course, German food may not be very compatible with the heat of Vegas (I visited in December.) Still a great beer bar to visit when in Vegas (Like you have much of a choice?)
