Hauptstr. 75, Kaffeehaus-Restaurant-Bar, 69117 Heidelberg
Perkeo is a nice place to take a break on the Hauptstrasse, with average food at average prices. The Kartoffelspinatauflauf is nice, and I like the Maultaschen (best described as Schwäbisch ravioli) with Mozzarella baked over it.
The servers are friendly and you can usually find a table. It’s a nice place to sit outside, or preferably just inside (as the Hauptstrasse can be quite crowded), and enjoy a beer and lunch as locals and tourists stream past.
Steingasse 9, 69117 Heidelberg
Vetter is surprisingly good considering it’s in the infamous Alte Brücke tourist trap area. Their unfiltered Helles and Dunkles are very nice, full beers that remind you of Bayern. (Takeaway minikegs are also available.)
The food is hearty: I like the Käsespätzle, but if you and your buddy are in the mood for a pan of 25 or 50 Nürnburgern Würstchen they can help you out.
You can still get a table even on Saturday noontimes, and it’s a nice place to sit outside (in the summer) or inside at the window to watch the world follow umbrellas or flags past your table on the way to the Alte Brücke.

Zum Pflug is a fun restaurant! First, if you’re a vegetarian, forget about it. Zum Pflug is all about the meat----you have to like meat. I can recommend the Pflugteller: for about €13, you get a side salad, a bowl of Pommes (it seems like every entree comes with a side of Pommes?), and then three kinds of meat with a big pile of onions and some Tzatziki and bread on the side.
Why is it fun? They always seem to be one server short for the number of tables, and if you go on a Friday or Saturday night (it fills up, so be warned) the poor people are running back and forth and/or shouting orders into the kitchen, which, as they use a nice open grill (behind a window) to cook everything, looks like it could burn down at any moment! (Fortunately the volunteer fire department is right across the street.)
It’s easy to get to (take the 22 tram to the Rathaus stop) and the prices are fine. I’ve skipped lunch the next day after having dinner there as the portions are so big.
Did I mention it’s all about the meat?
Wilhelmstr. 58, 65183 Wiesbaden
We arrived at around 12:30 on a Saturday afternoon, and the Paulaner restaurant in a Passage was empty save two tables----bad sign. We sat out in the Biergarten, which is located in the courtyard of the building. Although we were inside only briefly, it was typical Gemütlich Bayern (wooden tables, painted motifs on the wall).
The Münchner Ur-Typ Helles was OK. It didn’t seem as good as what I’ve had in Munich----maybe the beer wasn’t as fresh, maybe it was in my head, not a big deal.
The Obatzda was disappointing, as it didn’t have the nice chunks of Camembert and the balance was a bit off. The Schnitzel was OK, again nothing special.
The prices were reasonable and the server was friendly. Given the location and the ho-hum quality of the food, I wouldn’t recommend the walk down Wilhelmstraße to go out of your way, but it might be nice for a beer and a break if you’re already out that way.

Great food, friendly staff, excellent prices, super variety of Badisches food. Go a couple of times and they’ll remember your favorite drinks. Can fill up on Friday nights, but you can sit at the bar as well. Nice patio to watch the fine citizens of Eppelheim drive by. It’s right across the street from the last stop on the 22 tram if you’re coming from Heidelberg.
Schloßplatz 6, 65183 Wiesbaden
Located near the Hessisches Landestag, the Königvon Bayern Ratskeller has excellent beer but food with inconsistent quality. Finding Helles and Dunkles outside Bayern can be tricky, so this is a nice treat (both are nice, the Dunkles is a nice malty beer). The beer-and-sweet-mustard-crust schnitzel and Allgauer Kasespätzle are nice, but the Obatza was a bit funny.
There’s a nice atmosphere and it’s usually crowded. I do go back often because of its location and the beer, but find a couple of items on the menu you like and stick with them.
