Frankly, I don't care for German food but if I'm forced by family to eat it, there's only one place I will. Ol Heidelberg is the spot. My wife, daughter, and granddaughter all love it. Me, the pork schnitzel is about the only redeeming food...More

Stopped for lunch after a trip to the Space Museum. Excellent meal. Best value was children's chicken tenders-4 large breast patties with potatoes and applesauce. Friendly wait staff and fast service.

This is definitely a true German restaurant. Don't let the fact that it is in a nice strip mall fool you, they serve authentic German cuisine. I started with a German beer (they had a good selection of bottled German beer but only one on...More

Their desserts are on display when you first walk in the restaurant. When you want a dessert, you get up from the table, look, and choose.

I do not have a desert menu but, just imagine any delicious cake you may want and they have it, plus baklava.
